Let’s learn a bit about Kraig, shall we?
Kraig currently lives in Seattle, Washington, where he lives with his wife, Susan. When not working, Kraig and his wife enjoy traveling.
In fact, when asked where his favorite place in the world is, Kraig said, “Paris, France. If you move just a few feet, you find something new and terrific (or old and terrific)!”
Kraig and Susan in Paris:
Fun fact: a blogger liked Kraig and his wife so much in Paris that the photo below appeared on her blog!
Some of their other favorite places to travel include Thailand, Vietnam, and Argentina.
When Kraig and his wife aren’t traveling, Kraig likes to grow, preserve, and cook. He says, “Food is life!” In his greenhouse, Kraig sometimes has over 60 tomato plants and tons of lettuce! He also enjoys fermenting pickles and peppers.

Who would you most like to swap places with for a day? Elon Musk, can I spend it in space?
