Tieson was (more or less) born and raised north of Daybreak, Washington. After a brief, 12 year stint in school Tieson, by the grace of God, managed to graduate on time from Brush Prairie High School. Upon moving to and hastily returning from southern California, Tieson entered into the prestigious world of construction. Five years later, Tieson followed his heart and quit the construction industry to work on his father’s vineyard. It was a farmer’s life for him.
Sometime later, Tieson moved on to graphic and web design. While incredibly rewarding and enjoyable work, design failed to pay the bills. So Tieson returned to his blue-collar roots and started remodeling PetSmarts at night in cold weather. Alas, it wasn’t the fairy tale he thought it would be. Nor did he endear himself to the staff of PetSmart after he accidentally set fire to the hamster habitat. No hamsters were harmed during this fiasco.
Months later, in a flight of fancy, Tieson shipped off to backpack through Central America. There, through trial and tribulation, the Lord above introduced him to the love of his life and he promptly proposed. Setting upon a whirlwind adventure to travel from Costa Rica to Disneyland, Tieson and Samantha and another incomparable traveling friend all managed to backpack the roughly 5000 miles home to Washington state. Tieson married Samantha and has never been happier!
