Keith Bolender

Hi I'm Keith! Western Washington born and raised! We are so lucky to get to call this beautiful part of the country our home. I grew up in a family full of musicians, so naturally I'm an extreme music addict and I'm always looking to discover new bands and new artists. Sports are a huge part of my life. I was always playing organized sports as a kid, and now if there's a Seahawks, Mariners, or WSU game on the TV I won't be far away. I share an apartment with my girlfriend and our two cats, Luna and Severus. Don't be fooled though, I'm a dog person at heart. Music, sports, and animals. That pretty much sums me up!
