Justin (#757) 01-11-15

Justin is from Seattle, having moved to Sarasota 1 ½ years ago. His girlfriend relocated to Sarasota with their son, so Justin followed to stay close to his son. About a month ago, I met a stranger with the exact same scenario.

Actually, Justin likes Seattle better. The social scene is more active, Sarasota is more sleepy. He is trained in computer science, but if he wanted to work in that field, he'd have to commute to Tampa, about 50 miles away. So instead, he works at Micheal’s on East, an upscale restaurant about three miles away. There he could walk to work, but prefers a bicycle instead. In Seattle, numerous large IT companies were with walking distance of his home.
