Hey there. I'm Kevin Decker, and I am originally from Eagle, ID, a sleepy suburb of Boise, where I didn’t have a lot of connection to the ocean. However, after a short trip to Washington’s coast for a vacation I fell in love with the area and knew this is where I wanted to be. Now, as a Coastal Outreach Specialist and Economist with Washington Sea Grant at the University of Washington, I have the privilege to apply my passion for economics (What!? You didn’t know people could be passionate about economics?) to the coastal communities and the place that I call home.

If you’d like to stay in touch make sure to bookmark the site and to connect to me through social media. That way, as you’re scrolling through your feed, you can stay up to date on Washington’s coastal economy.
