What’s up, Tri-Cities? My name is Dan Roberts and I am Washington, Born and Raised (like the beer)! Grew up in Spokane, fought traffic in Seattle for 16 years, and am now enjoying the sunshine of Pasco/Kennewick/Richland. What can I tell you? Washington is my home. Two furry cats, a mommy, and her daughter, live with my wife and me rent-free, though we torture them with love and affection on a daily basis. Music is a passion of mine, in particular Pop music, because it’s always NEW! Hobbies include drawing and digital painting (hard to see on the radio), stand-up comedy, and songwriting (you’ll hear, and you’ll like it, whether you want to or not). And I collect Pop!s, comics, and non-sport trading cards. The “geek” label is a badge of honor for me.
