Meet the Owner, Adria Saracino

Adria Saracino
Hello, I’m Adria! During the day I work in tech as a content strategist, but at night I’m constantly looking for ways to live life to the fullest. This means I’m always hunting for the best events, local shops, hidden eats, gifted makers, and unique getaways in the PNW. You can watch a ridiculous video and read 35 facts about me on my other website, but here are 3 to break the ice:

1. I may or may not have a Trello board of Seattle restaurants I want to try (ok, I do).
2. I’m really good at Where’s Waldo. I’m convinced this is a very important life skill.
3. I was once charged at by a baby bear while hiking.
