My name is Nick and I'm a Dentist in the Air Force. I grew up in a small town outside of Seattle called Enumclaw. I went to college at BYU and subsequently dental school in Louisville Kentucky. Since working for the military I've lived in Las Vegas Nevada, South Korea, Germany, Hawaii and now DC. Of all these diverse places Hawaii is hands down my favorite. There is just something magical about Hawaii that will have my heart. Aside from dentistry I love photography and being outside enjoying nature. You can most often find me on some outdoor adventure, taking pictures (whether it's a gorgeous sunset or some ridiculous dessert), working out to maintain my fitness, or spending time with friends and family. And speaking of dessert I have quite an intense sweet tooth. I know, a dentist with a sweet tooth, I've heard all the jokes you can imagine in this scenario but it's true!
My husband Spencer is originally from Iowa but most recently lived in Los Angeles before moving to Hawaii so we could get married and start our life together. He works in the fitness industry as a personal trainer and group fitness instructor. In addition to fitness he's worked in interior design and visual merchandising, entertainment, music, and jewelry design. He's usually looking for some creative endeavor to get involved in.
While we spend a lot of time obligated to work, we try to take time to get out and explore. We have found great places to eat and fun things to do and are happy to share our knowledge!
