Nate was born and raised in Port Orchard, Washington. He and Heidi, his high school sweetheart, and wife of over 20 years, met and married there. Together they have 4 beautiful children: Abigail, Madelyn, Ethan and Micah. As well as a mini schnauzer named Boston and possibly a fish in one of the kid’s rooms. Nate is a general contractor and owns his own business. Dirt biking, skiing (snow & water) and wake surfing are a few of his hobbies; he also likes to golf, he’s just no good at it. Although they moved to Coeur d’Alene over 10 years ago, coffee and Seattle sports, as heartbreaking as they are, are still among his favorites.

Jacob is also a die hard Seattle sports fan and fantasy football enthusiast.
