Promoting small business in the Pacific and US


South Puget Sound

South Sound Entrepreneur Showcases Talent In Many Ways

Many techies like to play with systems. Trevor Altman is no exception. But how many of them actually has a stage presence as well? Trevor Altman does. His one and a half year old business is increasing in service offerings and can meet the needs of wedding and event planners throughout the South Puget Sound region of  Western Washington. I spoke with him this summer to learn more about how he’s evolved into a thriving small business owner.

thumb_img_2232_1024As a teen, Trevor was involved in sound and audio technical activities at church, eventually completing the audio technician program at Berklee College. When someone asked him to DJ for a wedding, the rest was history; he embarked on owning and running his own business. At first he offered his services as a DJ for weddings, then marketed at wedding shows and to event planners. Now, he has a robust offering and has a lighting tech, audio tech, videographer and a staff of 4 DJ’s. Not only does he offer quality entertainment, he also serves as a master of ceremonies for venues in need of one and has a recording studio too! I have witnessed him in action–he’s a natural! He is a unique business owner who works hands on with customers, is not a franchise, customizes services to fit each client’s needs and he’s also a very genuine individual. Anyone with a small or large-scale event in need of quality audio technical, emceeing, entertainment and recording services in the South Puget Sound area of Western Washington should contact Altman Audio.

Aromatic Flavors of Curry House Lacey

As you can tell, I enjoy eating—especially cultural cuisine. I live in a small city that is bordered by two other smalls cities, comprisingIMG_9851 the “tri-cities” of Western Washington. We don’t have tons of multi-ethnic cuisine but, thankfully, we have an Indian restaurant that boasts such flavor and hospitality that I cannot help but share. The Curry House at 8765 Tallon Ln NE, Unit H, Lacey, WA 98516 has become my “go-to” restaurant for curry and spice. 
When you enter the establishment during lunch, owner Pranjit welcomes you with her warm smile. After ushering you to a table, your olfactories are met with tantalizing smells of curry, garlic and other flavors that helps you to know you are, indeed, in an Indian restaurant. The menu (also available online) offers selections of appetizers, clay oven dishes and vegetarian. Don’t worry if you’re a meat-lover, there are number of chicken or lamb, to satisfy your carnivorous hunger pangs. Each meal is so robust, even during lunch that you leave with leftovers for the next meal! I love this because it offers a great value for the price. I usually eat the vegetarian entrée because I thoroughly enjoy Mattir Paneer, a curry contaiIMG_9854ning Indian cheese and peas, and comes with other curry dishes and basmati rice. Mmmm…basmati rice with cloves and other spices. Of course, each of these entrée dishes comes with Naan (Indian flatbread). This facilitates dipping and enjoying the various sauces on your plate!
Please, if you’re in the Lacey, Washington area, specifically the Martin Way area near Hawks Prairie Costco, stop by the Curry House Lacey. Also, if you’re in a hurry, you can also order online and pick up your meal. You will not be disappointed! And, if you happen to meet Pranjit, please let her know Karen, the Hawaii lady, sent you.
