Joe Pfost was born and raised in Meridian, Idaho. With the support of a loving family and great friends, he moved to Seattle in 1998. Washington is where Joe’s big life adventure truly began. After several years of playing hard, working hard, and studying harder, Joe earned his Bachelor of Science in Mathematics and joined the professional world of wine in June, 2004. On a whim, Joe decided to take a stab at graduate school in 2009. While continuing to work full-time, travelling to new places, and spending time with awesome new friends, Joe somehow managed to finish the graduate program and earn a Master’s degree in Business Administration from Seattle University in March, 2013. Joe feels extremely lucky to have met so many wonderful people along the way, including his forever person, Cliff Cooper. He is looking forward to sharing an evening with all his loved ones on October 4th, 2014, and “sealing the deal” with Cliff!
Cliff was hatched in the small town of Ingleside, Texas. He moved out of his parents house at 18 and into the big bad working world. Cliff joined a tech company in Corpus Christi, but quickly out grew South Texas. At 22, Cliff moved to Houston where he made some great friends and continued to grow in his career. The beautiful Pacific Northwest had been calling since he was a child, though. When the opportunity for a job in Seattle came knocking, Cliff jumped on it. At 27 he made the non-stop drive from Texas to Washington with one of his best friends. Since moving to Seattle he has fallen in love with the area and made some great friends. July 29th of 2012, Cliff met Joe and fell in love again.
