Why We Heart Them

Born and raised in Seattle, he is a true Seattleite – Conor attended Seattle Prep for high school, where he was a member of the 2000 State Championship Basketball Team. He sustained his love for water and mountains, not to mention his close friends and family, by attending UW for college where he graduated with a degree in Sociology.

Currently, Conor lives in downtown Bellevue and works as a housing developer, in charge of acquisitions and the rehabilitation of apartment buildings in the Rainier Valley. Prior to that, Conor held a long-standing position at a local valet company, and, with his enthusiasm and work ethic, became the youngest manager of the Seattle-based company. Not only is he giving back to the community with his current work, but he also volunteers his time as a “big brother” with the Big Brother/Big Sister program.

When he’s not devoting himself to causes, Conor spends his free time playing basketball, golf, waterskiing and wakeboarding, making music and playing the guitar. In the summertime, you can find him enjoying the sun and sand on Whidbey Island – his favorite “home away from home.” He likes to describe himself as a “Country boy at heart…with a city swagger”. He’s one serious catch for one very lucky lady.
