What were you the most excited about joining the Seattle Fish team?
The ability to be part of a team that is well-established in the region who takes their culture seriously.
What has been the most memorable project you’ve worked on since starting with SFC?
In my short time, it is, without question, working through the company transition with the accounting team while supporting Pete (McClure, CFO) and working on all transition items. It’s exciting times for the SFC team!
You know we have to ask… What’s your favorite seafood? How do you like to prepare it?
Coming from a coastal upbringing, I enjoy all types of seafood dishes from smoked fish dip and fish tacos to hog fish, but I always find myself cooking or ordering scallops when available. Bacon wrapped scallops are great but so is a quick, simple sear on a pan.
