Kurt began his legal career in mortgage banking law at Routh Crabtree Olsen, P.S. and holds a Juris Doctor (J.D.) from Seattle University School of Law. Kurt also obtained his undergraduate degree in Biology from Taylor University in Upland, Indiana.

Kurt enjoys volunteering regularly with Seattle Children’s Hospital and Union Gospel Mission. He lives in the Maple Leaf neighborhood of Seattle with his wife and three daughters and enjoys the local sports scene, traveling, and running around Green Lake.
