About Corinne Whiting

Corinne, an east coast native who relocated here from the other Washington in 2011, was bit by the travel bug early on. She lived in Strasbourg, France (during her junior year at Georgetown University) and in Edinburgh, Scotland, where she got a masters degree in Cultural Studies. She feels very grateful to have explored incredible spots on our globe ranging from Bolivia and Egypt to Turkey and China, but there are passport pages yet to fill (and travel tales yet to be written!). After serving as associate editor at Where magazine in D.C. for five years, Corinne has embarked on a new adventure here in the PNW as a freelance writer and photographer, contributing to publications like National Geographic Traveler, the Alaska Airlines in-flight magazine, Amtrak's OnTrak, 1889 Washington, 1859 Oregon, Visit Seattle and so on. She loves exploring this incredible corner of the country while debunking the rain myths, upping her coffee quotient, hearing heaps of live music and finding her Zen near the water as often as possible.

The Stranger has called John Craigie “…the lovechild of John Prine and Mitch Hedberg with a vagabond troubadour edge,” and any concert goer who’s experienced him live can attest to the fact that the guy is talented, charming and just plain funny. If you’re wise, you’ll catch him at The Triple Door on Tuesday, December 5 (or in other PNW locales throughout December). (more…)

Grand Opening: Tuft & Needle
Mattress shopping just got a whole lot more fun—and affordable. Tuft & Needle co-founder JT Marino explains that his idea for starting the business came after a horrible mattress retail experience—one “even worse than shopping for a used car.” Afterward, he vented to friend Daehee Park, and the two decided to quit their Silicon Valley jobs to bootstrap T&N in Phoenix in 2012.
