Just a little introduction to my newest couple Kate and David!!
David grew up in Lakewood, CA and went to St. John Bosco High School. He graduated from the University of Southern California in 2003 with a degree in Civil Engineering. David has worked for Nabih Youssef Associates Structural Engineers since 2003 in downtown LA. He recently passed his Structural Engineering license exam!
Kate grew up in Lincoln and Omaha, Nebraska and moved to Wichita, KS before her freshman year of high school. She graduated from the University of Kansas in 2006 and received her masters from Stanford University in 2007. Kate has worked for Nabih Youssef Associates Structural Engineers in downtown LA since 2008.
David and Kate met while both working at NYA. After a couple months of getting to know each other, David finally asked Kate on a date. They started the night out with dinner at Violet, a Spanish tapas restaurant, got a drink at the bar next door and then decided on a whim to ride the Santa Monica ferris wheel since Kate was new to LA and had never done so.
While skiing in Mammoth Mountain over New Years weekend, David took Kate to the top of the mountain to stop for a ski break and look at the observatory. After a few minutes of reading the mountain's history and checking out the nearby mountain peaks, they went outside to a private area to take pictures of the beautiful scenery. David asked Kate to stand back a bit while he got down one knee to take some pictures. He asked her to come closer and then popped the question!
