Hi. My name is Wiley. I’ve lived in Seattle for about two and a half years and am really staring to get to know its ins and outs and the things I am personally drawn to. I’m a theatre artist with a deep passion for Shakespeare. I think his language articulates a core humanity we all share. I believe people can learn more about themselves through speaking his words and hearing those stories. My artistic mission is to share my love, knowledge, and curiosity of his work with people to make us all more empathetic and grounded humans. Living in Seattle has given me a good feel for the theatrical pulse of the city, and there is always something going on. The sweep of performances here is pretty incredible. You’ve got the big houses on huge stages, emersive dinner theatre experiences, firey young companies with fierce dedication to new plays, hole in the wall fringe spaces...the list goes on and on. Aside from theatre work I also play the violin and have a deep love for swing dancing, Lindy Hop in particular. It is a uniquely American creation filled with history spanning across the country and back over 100 years. Jazz music moves my soul and I can think of no better activity on a Friday night than heading over to the Aria or Century Ballroom to grab a drink and swing out! (Bonus* sometimes they have live music, and all off these dances have free intro lessons and I’m a pretty decent teacher myself if you would like to join). As a person I am outgoing, friendly, and sometimes a little ridiculous. I enjoy spontaneous adventures and delight in new experiences with friends.

Long-time Seattle-area resident. Happy to explore the city on foot, on transit, or by bike, or go hiking in the mountains nearby. Or go for a paddleboard on a lake. Enjoy the Seattle Craft Brewing scene. And the excellent Food. Ich bin Deutscher und sprech fliessend Deutsch sowie Englisch. Je sais parler francais.

I am an entrepreneur as well as a passionate artist who loves to experience the phenomenon we call life. I live for what gives me joy and fulfillment; to laugh and explore. To grow in strength and wisdom. I am a seasoned mixologist in a healthy relationship with the Seattle restaurant and bar scene and I am currently playing Deputy Jesse Holcomb on Showtimes Twin Peaks. I believe in fitness and health so I became a yoga and meditation instructor and I truly believe human beings are innately creative so I keep the artistic muscles strong by being a writer, drummer, actor, producer and philosophizer. I have lived in Seattle my entire life and know this beautiful city like the back of my hand. Let's explore, and why not laugh and grow along the way?

Hello! My name is Claire. I'm a Seattle native who works in the theater and music industry. I love Seattle's thriving arts scene- music, visual arts, theater- and all the delicious restaurants, coffee shops, and bars Seattle has to offer. Seattle is growing by the day and there's always something new to discover!

Hi! I grew up in Seattle but spent 6 years combined in New York and Paris in my late teens/early 20's. I've been back in Seattle since 2010 and I'm enjoying re-discovering my hometown, growing pains and all. It’s easy to take the beauty of Seattle for granted. I love that it’s a sizeable city with all of the luxuries that come with that (top-notch restaurants, research universities, and a strong art and music scene) but it also has numerous escapes for nature. The water, mountains, and fresh seafood keep me going, even during the grey months. When I’m not trying to rediscover my own city, I can be found somewhere around the world. Some of the most recent places I've traveled include Iceland, Vietnam, and Hong Kong. I enjoy playing the flute and piano in my spare time and play the flute in a community orchestra.

I consider myself a new-nomad. On my fifties and with no English I moved from Italy to Seattle, on the amazing Pacific Northwest!. I have been here since 2011 and now I know this city better than most of the local. More, I'll watch everything with my Italian point of view and my Latin American Taste.
