January 2014 – Denver, CO
April 2014- Snohomish, WA
I moved to Washington from Colorado after I graduated high school. Though I’ve considered Seattle home since stepping off the airplane, I always get excited when I meet other people from the Denver area. This weekend, while out walking my dog, I ran into a Denver native and recent Washington transplant, Tuck Carruthers. I stopped to talk to him as he pulled up to the dog park when I noticed his Colorado license plate and huge dog (I’m a sucker for any dog over 90lbs). After introducing myself, he agreed to be interviewed for this project. Click here to be taken to the Soundcloud track.
So, when did you move to Washington?
My name is Tuck Carruthers and I moved to the Seattle area in the fall of 2013. August to be exact.
What inspired the move?
I came up here looking for some business and employment opportunities. I had a connection through a guy back home who used to run an office up here with Clear Channel Outdoor. So I got in touch with him to do some account exec stuff and sales and marketing.
How are you settling in?
Well, I just adopted a dog. She’s a six-year-old Rhodesian Ridgeback. I got her from a shelter in Woodinville actually. I just picked her up the other day. Her name is Rox, she’s awesome.
Did you know anyone living here before you moved?
Well, when I moved here I didn’t know a ton of people, I had maybe four or five connections and that’s grown a little bit, ya know, since work. I’m excited to have my new puppy.
How would you summarize your impression of Washington so far?
Overall, my experience here has been awesome. I love being close to the mountains I love being close to the water. I’m excited to have a new buddy of mine to walk around and explore all that stuff with.
