- John Architect (retired) (2)
- Anna Office Manager (retired) (2)
Hello from John and Anna (Pacific Northwest / Washington State)
My name is John, I am an American and my wife Anna is an Australian. We met while traveling through Europe and we have been happily married now for thirty years. As of the summer of 2013 - we are both (also happily) be retired.
I ran my own office as an architect in hospital planning and design for the past 25 years but I was originally trained as a musician playing jazz and classical piano and studied fine arts (ceramics) in college. Anna worked as a micro-biologist, first in Australia and then here in the States before taking over as the office manager of my practice.
We have lived at our home here in Olympia for the past twenty-five years - traveling regularly between Australia and the United States making other trips to Europe, the UK and Bali. We love to travel and intend to do a lot more now that we are free from the day to day responsibilities of running the firm.

Anna and I began snorkeling 10 or 12 years ago and since that time, it has become one of our favorite things to do. We are always looking for warm, clear water, white sand and lots of fish.
