Tim Steinke

My wife Erin and my first big journey together went around the world in 100 days for our honeymoon, a trip in which I had one car accident and got one speeding ticket in every country that we visited (I think that I may still have an arrest warrant in New Zealand for an unpaid ticket, but we’ll keep that between us). We currently live in one of the few corners of Washington State where you can still MS Staples Gift Cards at Safeway; we own a winery, ski after work and hike as much as our elderly knees will let us.
