I have been a season ticket holder since the inaugural season and have been passionate about the Sounders since first kick. When I was younger, I used to wake up really early in the morning to watch the English Premier League before going out and playing on the torn up grass fields in the area. I believe it was then that I started to love this beautiful game.

I look forward to working on the Alliance Council and helping to make the overall experience better for all of our fans and supporters.

I’m a big fan of tailgating, so chances are you’ll find me barbequing on the grill at various tailgates or at the local bars like King St Bar & Oven and Girin. Please feel free to join me prior to the game!

My first introduction to soccer was playing in youth leagues while growing up in Seattle. As a kid, I attended many Tacoma Stars matches; however, it was not until the 1994 World Cup that I fell madly in love with the sport while attending fat camp in San Diego. Shortly thereafter, I became a Chelsea supporter (when they were still unbearably bad). I became a Sounders fan in the late-90s, while they were competing in the USISL A-League. I am also a supporter of Paris Saint-Germain, having lived in Paris while completing a degree in French and Francophone Studies.

In my everyday life, I am an attorney (focusing on entertainment law and small businesses), college and law professor, film producer, podcaster, radio disc jockey, and small business owner. I am also the Media Director for Gorilla FC. I currently sit on the Board of Directors of both Gorilla FC and One Hundred for Haiti. In 2002, I was voted Silicon Valley’s Best Local Celebrity by readers of the Metro Silicon Valley and in 2010, a film I produced about the theft of our beloved Seattle Supersonics, Sonicsgate, won “Best Sports Film” at the Webby Awards and “Audience Choice Silver Medal for Excellence” at the Park City Film Music Festival.

Currently in my fourth term as a member of the Alliance Council, I joined to lend my expertise in the law and help make the fan experience in the stadium the best that it can be.

Growing up in Seattle, I’ve always considered myself a product of the NW soccer culture. I played as a kid, my siblings played, my nephews play, my friends kids play – this is a soccer town and the Sounders have always been a vital part of that identity.

After the Sounders joined MLS I attended single games for a few seasons, finally joining as a season ticket holder in 2014. Over time I added some traveling to away games – Vancouver, Toronto, Portland – and realized just how much this club and its supporters mean to me. That’s when I decided that I wanted to be more involved in any way that I could. I’m excited to help represent the incredible spirit and diversity of our Alliance community and continue to build the soccer experience for everyone. In 2019 I’m looking forward to working on projects reviewing game day accessibility (including the ongoing ’sit vs stand’ conversation), the continued evolution of the Council and its role, and supporting the ongoing opportunities we have to make our voices heard with activities such as the STH Scarf Vote.

I attend games with a group of friends and can generally be found grabbing a drink beforehand somewhere in the stadium area – we’re partial to the fancy ones at the Bar Shoppe when we have time. I’m a member of the Eastside Supporters supporters group, am active on the r/SoundersFC subreddit forum where I participate as cp_trixie, and can be found on Twitter as @ottergal. Here’s to an incredible 2019 and showing this city, and the league, what being a Sounder means.

I am a forensic accountant by day and soccer supporter by night.

I have enjoyed soccer since I was kid playing YMCA indoor soccer. I went to A-League Sounder matches as a kid and followed my Grandfather’s English team, Norwich City.

I have been a MLS Sounders Season Ticket Member since day one and love how the city of Seattle has embraced this team.

I have served on the Alliance Council since 2011. I am the author of the Scarf Competition Resolution that has allowed season ticket members to design and vote on our annual scarf for the past three years. I have also worked with other Council Members to improve the voting platform that is used to elect Council members and other votes.

I am a member of the Sounders Community trust and co-founder of Eastside Supporters.

I am a fun-loving soccer fan that loves her family and the people I surround myself with. I do photography on the side from my “real world” job and enjoy spending time with my loved ones, including our pup Audi (yes, as in the car—I’m a German / European car enthusiast).

As far as soccer is concerned, I played as a kid- into jr. high and high school on rec leagues but was really never any good- however I never lost the love for the game so when the Sounders became an MLS team, that seemed like a perfect fit for me to get involved again.

For me, it all began back in 1974. The youth soccer movement had just started at my school and this coincided perfectly with the inauguration of the Seattle Sounders. I distinctly remember listening to the Sounders games on the radio on summer evenings… the play by play called by Bob Robertson. The Sounders anthem gave me chills then and still does to this day. Since 1974, my dedication and passion for the Sounders has never wavered…through the bad times (the folding of NASL) to the best of times (MLS Cup 2016).

I have also played soccer since my youth and still play in the ECS Pub league. Additionally, I have coached for over 20 years, from high school teams to premier teams to rec teams.

I am looking forward to becoming more involved with the team and sport that I love. I pledge that I will do my best to help the Alliance and the Sounders FC in any way possible.

Eternal Blue; Forever Green… Sounders ’til I die.

I have been a soccer fan for a long time. Originally from Minnesota, I played soccer in high school and club soccer in college. I was a Kicks fan. We had some early interaction with Seattle at the time. (one win and one loss in conference play.) I moved to Federal Way in 1989, married, and have three lovely girls. I coached soccer in the early days, and when they turned 11 left the coaching to the pros. All my girls have gone on to play soccer in college. Our family witnessed the Sounders USL championship in 2007. We have been season ticket holders since day one in section 205. I still get excited when 40000+ fans are on their feet, hands above their heads, welcoming the players on the field.
I joined the committee to help get things done and face the new challenges ahead. I bring many years of experience as a district manager in the restaurant industry and currently working with IT for Denali Advance Integration. I had the opportunity to lead and serve on many projects. I started a community supper and a rec soccer tournament. I also served four years on the board of my church.
I am having a great time as a fan of Sounders FC and would like to help the club continue and grow.

Our beloved SuperSonics were stolen from us officially in 2008. I grew up listening to Kevin Calabro, rarely missing a radio broadcast when the team wasn’t on TV. I still want the Sonics back. Even with all of the anguish I had about being robbed of the Sonics, I was thrilled at the prospect of rooting for another much-loved Seattle team. In 2009, the Sounders MLS run began and I was all in.

I grew up playing soccer. As I got older, I focused on fastpitch and basketball. Although I played other sports, my mom was playing soccer into her 40’s. Many nights were spent playing with a soccer ball on the sidelines during her practices and games. I loved the competitive atmosphere surrounding the women.

Mom and I have been season ticket holders for the Sounders since 2009. We sit in section 139 with two of our friends. I want to improve the experience for fans while on Alliance Council.

I’m a Seattle native who grew up in the 90’s with the A-League Sounders. Jumped in the pool as a season ticket holder midway through 2009 and have never wavered in support of our team in Rave Green.

I have grown to appreciate the beautiful game and the community that it has fostered here in Seattle. The relationship between the club and community is something special and I want to continue to foster that bond. I’ve even picked up playing soccer again. On Sundays, you can catch me reliving my glory days in the ECS Pub League.
In my daily life, I work for Seattle Parks (tennis anyone?), and am a proud husband and father. You can catch me in section 120 with either my wife or my Dad.

The 1994 World Cup in the USA made me passionate about soccer, but it wasn’t until I moved to Seattle in 2008 that I lived in an area that shared my feelings for the beautiful game.

Thanks to the soccer community here in Seattle, I’ve met lifelong friends and have taken some incredibly epic trips across the world to watch soccer. I’ve been lucky enough to have been in attendance when the USA won the Women’s World Cup, seen the Sounders play at Estadio Azteca in Mexico City, and most importantly celebrated with my friends, family and fellow supporters in Toronto as we won our first MLS Cup!

On match day I can typically be found starting my day with fellow Emerald City Supporters at Fuel before the gates open, ultimately ending up in the Brougham End supporting our boys!
Outside of soccer, I play goaltender in the Greater Seattle Hockey League, enjoy going to live concerts, and try to do what I can to make a positive mark in our local community.

I am originally from the Bay Area. My love for the game began to start shortly after the 1994 WC, but it wasn’t until 2010 where my passion for the game really grew when I moved to Seattle and quickly became a passionate Sounders supporter and season ticket member.

Coming into my 3rd year as a council member, my goals have always been to assist wherever I can to towards achieving the goals laid out to ultimately enhance the fan experience for any/all supporters.

I moved to Seattle in 2013 from the Midwest and immediately adopted the Sounders as my team based on how much that the city of Seattle seemed to love its team and how special the fan base is. I love organized and fun cheering. Seeing how the Emerald City Supporters made the fan experience special, I knew that my wife and I needed to get season tickets in 2015 and have kept them ever since.
I joined the Alliance Council in 2021. The thing that I really enjoy about the Alliance Council is being a liaison between the team and the fans. It’s hard for supporters when they feel that they aren’t getting all of the information they want from the team when it comes to tickets going on sale, new stadium policies, etc. One of the things I try to do as often as possible is to be on Facebook and Twitter during times of fan confusion to answer questions in the online groups and make Sounders staff aware of difficulties and complaints the fans and season ticket holders are having.
I also appreciate our role as an advisory board when the Sounders are considering new changes, whether it is ticket policy, redesign of the Sounders crest or new ways to offer social action opportunities to the fans. Finally, the Alliance Council has been fantastic in connecting to other avid and excited supporters of the team for us to bond with our love of the Sounders. I encourage any other fans looking to represent their community to join the Alliance Council

I am a soccer dad and SOUNDERS super fan.
I’ve been in love with the sport since birth practically. Indoor, outdoor, men’s, women’s coed you name it. I’ve been to Sounders matches pre-MLS and STM since inaugural season. I was elected into Council in 2020. What are my intentions? I want to collaborate with fans and the Sounders organization and make Sounders matches must see events. I want to share my passion for the beautiful game with others and get as many people interested and involved as humanly possible. Join us and be a part of something spectacular.

“Fútbol is life!” That slogan certainly rings true in my life. Nearly 50 years after my playing my first match, I still haven’t hung up my boots. And, thanks to Seattle Sounders, my enjoyment of the beautiful game has only intensified. A season ticket holder since the inaugural MLS season in 2009, I’ve been fortunate enough to see this team grow into something truly special. I will always treasure the countless friendships, the awesome road trip memories and all that shiny hardware that we’ve managed to collect so far!
I’m a semi-retired aerospace engineer, a proud husband and dad, a soccer coach and and an honorary captain in the @LastFrontierYachtClub.
I feel truly honored to have been elected to the Alliance Council, and look forward to doing my part in representing Alliance members and helping the club extend its reign as the preeminent franchise in American sport.
