“our time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people's thinking”

Steve Jobs

Jeff is the founder and owner and brain child of Saint Society. He has hosted the dream of a coffee shop and creative space since he was a teenager and he cannot wait to finally bring it to life. Through a prayerful vision, he hasn’t been able to shake the idea of creating this space and as a man of faith, has made it part of his life call. He believes it will be an atmosphere filled with exactly what people need; love, life, creativity and of course good coffee. ​

Jeff is an entrepreneur and dreamer at every sense of the word. He has taken his life experiences both good and bad, made the most of them, and somehow always found a way to include others in his visions and projects. He is a very creative and compassionate individual and he likes to view the world through that lens. Love and creativity. From hosting elaborate variety shows, fashion shows, weddings, video shoots, interior design projects, and many personal and large scale corporate events, there always seems to be a creative endeavor brewing in his brain. If there isn’t, then he will create one. Amongst his busy schedule, it is no surprise that Jeff has found his escape in the arts. Whether on stage as a performer or working on the production team in set design or props, he loves to be in the theatre. He someday hopes to write and produce his own show. Also, fun fact, the arts are what introduced the Saints Society team to each other. 

If Jeff isn’t actively working on a creative endeavor, then he is likely traveling. While his schedule doesn’t allow a ton of time for it, he loves to explore new parts of the world with friends and family. His favorite place to date being Kauai, HI. If he can’t go somewhere tropical, you'll find him in Disneyland.

Jeff has worked throughout the Pacific Northwest in a variety of creative fields and business partnerships. He has worked in photography, fashion design, interior, stage design, event coordination and creative directing. He has worked with major corporations and nonprofit organizations in the greater Seattle area, Central and Eastern Washington and has recently expanded his network to Boise, Idaho. At the end of the day if Jeff is using his creative gifts and is investing in others along the way, then he is more than happy.

“The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why.” ”

Mark Twain

Bryce is a person who you’ll rarely see standing still. A jack of many trades, born and raised here in the Sumner area, he owns and operates a custom furniture manufacturing company during the day, and typically has multiple projects going on outside of that. Whether it’s demo to get the Saint X storefront up and going, renovations at home, or helping friends and family out with their day to day, he keeps pretty busy! When he’s not working or lending a hand, he loves to get outside. Paddle boarding, camping, hiking, and snowboarding are some of his favorite recreational activities. Being out away from the grind every now and then is something he loves. 

He has had a long standing passion for the performing arts and has been a part of more than 50 community theater productions over the last decade in the greater Seattle area. Some of his favorite roles include Prince Eric in Disney’s Little Mermaid the Broadway Musical, and playing one of the brothers in Seven Brides for Seven Brothers at ManeStage theater. He is most thankful though, that he met Christina and Jeff, two of his best friends and now business partners through performing together.

 

Bryce was raised in an environment of family business, and has had a long standing love for coffee since he was young. Growing up, his family owned and operated a commercial printing company where he spent many summers as a kid helping with orders around the shop and later on with invoicing in the business office. While going to the University of Washington, he took a job at Starbucks where he spent a few years working as a barista trainer and shift supervisor. From there, his love of building things with his hands landed him a job manufacturing custom furniture frames. Working his way up the ladder, his predecessor eventually presented him with the opportunity of acquiring the business for himself. Where he then founded Artisan Custom Craft Furnishings as his own in 2018.

CHRISTIN 

“Fight for the thing that you care about, but do it in a way that will lead others to join you” Ruth Bader Ginsberg

Christina is the type of woman to wear many hats. She is hostess extraordinaire for many professional and personal events, at her home and around the Puget Sound. From non-profit fundraising galas to weddings, Christina has built an excellent reputation for her eye for detail, decisiveness, and ability to keep the energy and good vibes up under pressure. Her favorite party planning crew at home include her talented chef husband Kevin and their pups Hemingway and Beatrice. Christina has worked throughout the greater Tacoma area for the past decade.  She has co-headed major fundraisers for several nonprofits solidifying her experience in events and has many years experience in the coffee industry with training from both Stumptown Coffee Roasters (based in Portland) and Valhalla Coffee Roasters (based in Tacoma). She has also coordinated several friends and family weddings over the past several years.  Christina has a BA in History from Pacific Lutheran University with an emphasis in the World Wars. If you ever have a question history related (even questions in the pop culture and true crime variety), she’s your girl. 

She can be the life of the party, but is also known to binge-watch the latest HBO/Netflix/Hulu show alone before anyone knows it’s out.  She greatly enjoys recharging through running and biking around Tacoma.  Over the last two years, she has gone from barely running for a few minutes at a time, to training for her first marathon. You might just see her running or cross-training throughout the neighborhoods of the greater Sumner area! 

She has a great passion for performing arts and has been in musicals throughout the Sumner/Puyallup/Tacoma area and truly loves the community theaters she has gotten to work with. Her favorite shows she has been involved in have been Oliver! at ManeStage Theatre and The Rocky Horror Show at Tacoma Musical Playhouse. Art has always been in the forefront of her life and she can’t wait to integrate it even further through Saint X.
