My name is David. My family moved to the Yakima Valley in 1994. I left in 2004 to attend various institutions of higher learning (so much school) and ended up working in Seattle after finishing law school. My wife recently graduated from the University of Washington’s Dental School. We are now preparing to return to Yakima as late stage twenty-somethings as opposed to appropriately angsty teenagers.

My hope for this blog is to illuminate the essence of living in Yakima. Attorneys spend a significant amount of time churning out what I would describe as technical prose. I find blogs to be a cathartic way to sneak in some creative writing on the side.

I’m looking forward to finding my favorite burrito and iced coffee pairing; helping a not-yet-acquired puppy through obedience training; and dolling out constructive criticism to a pack of 10-year-olds as they hunt a soccer ball. I want to accomplish this all while highlighting the best of Yakima’s charm and entrepreneurship. I don’t think I’ve ever spelled that work correctly on the first try. Or the second.
