Q1. Why are you in Belltown?
A. it's all a happy accident. About three years ago my job brought me here for two weeks to pilot a position. In those two weeks, I fell in love with Seattle, so when the opportunity came, I jumped on it. I picked Belltown at first - honestly - because it had a good walk score! Everything is all in one place I've chosen to stay in Belltown though, because of the community. I like that there's something for everyone here, no matter how normal, or how much of a misfit you are. I've lived a lot of places, and I've met some of the people I would call best friends - some of the best of my life - right here in Belltown.
Q2. What's your favorite thing about #Belltown?
A. The Rendezvous. It's literally a large part of what my life is, and what's it's been, since I moved here. When I first moved here, I didn't know anybody, and i ended up at the Rendezvous. I first met one friend, then two, then five then twenty... then all of Belltown. That's where it all started. I will say - if you're looking for something to do, they've always got a show going on!
Q3. What's your message for the Mayor and Council about Belltown?
A. Belltown thrives upon the same kind of diversity as my entire social sphere. Just like my social sphere, I would never want someone to feel as though they're not welcome, in Belltown. That's about whether you're a have or have-not, normal or weird, gay or straight, black or white. This is a historic location. I don't understand why you would take that kind of community away from somebody.
