Favorite Thing About Seattle

Daniel lives in the Capitol Hill neighborhood of Seattle and loves being in the heart of the city. He feels that Seattle is a special combination of access to outdoor adventures both in the mountains and on the water; world class art, music, food, sports, and more; and a population that, as a whole, cares about causes and having a positive impact in their communities, for humanity, and for the world.
