It all started at the beginning.
I was always destined to love pie.
My name is Kevin Ethan and I am a writer, blogger, WA State Employee, fiancé, and dog dad.
I grew up in Rock Island, IL where I was a huge music and theater geek and lack-luster student. I received a 75% scholarship to attend Illinois State University though because I manage to carry a tune pretty well. However, I went off to college and went all YOLO 10 years too early. As such, I ended my time at ISU after only one year.

I did a little drum corps. I spent a lot of time spreading my passion to high school kids for about 5 years as color guard instructor.
In 2010, I joined the United States Army. I spent my entire four years with the 4th Brigade Combat Team, 82nd Airborne Division. I still kinda miss jumping out of planes. One of my fondest memories was of this time in Afghanistan. We were staying in a persons hut for the night, our infantry platoon sergeant sat us around the fire and read excerpts from 50 Shades of Grey.
It was in the Army in 2013 when I met my fiancé and love of my life Derek.
We currently reside south of Seattle, WA with our 3 dogs Phoenix, Maple and Maddie.
