Steve Mullen

was born and raised here and have spent all of my time here to this point. I've been an avid sports fan , especially of the local high schoolers who have gone on to bigger and better things. Ahmad Rashad (Bobby Moore), Ron Cey, Ron Medved, Jon Kitna, and Lawyer Milloy have have been just a few of the great Tacoma high school athletes. I also have many friends and family here who I stay in touch with regularly and I plan to spend the rest of my life here in this laid back town with it's low cost of living. Go T-Town.!!
