Tim Ichien is a southern California native who loves getting outdoors and basking in the sun. Seattle summers are just right by his standards of warmth. He grew up with an interest in, and a curiosity of, the environment around him—which led him to pursue a biology degree. In order to put that degree to use, he then traveled and conducted research on sea turtles and gopher tortoises for a couple years.
After realizing he missed having a more permanent home, he settled down in the Seattle area. He now lives on the sleepy island of Bainbridge with his partner, Theresa, and cat, Edna, where he spends his free time sleeping, hiking, watching or playing soccer, reading, gaming, or simply sitting in silence.
