Seattle Washington USA


picture2Jim and Mark met during college in Bellingham WA and have been adventuresome best friends ever since. Together they formed Embrace The Rain Music in 1995 and have produced two CDs of Mark's music. ETR began with a vision of producing music that brings joy and inspiration to each listener. Incredible People Magazine is the latest step in a continuing mission of helping people live to their very fullest potential...body, mind, and spirit.

 

picture2Mark Reiman is a co-founder and publisher of Incredible People Magazine and is the editor-in-chief. He was diagnosed with A.L.S. (Lou Gehrig's Disease) in 1991. To create greater awareness of ALS and share a message of hope and determination, he became the first person in history to sing the national anthem in every major league baseball park in one season (1998), for which he now holds a certified Guinness World Record. One of his best memories of the anthem tour is getting to throw out the first pitch in Kansas City. The worst is hitting the 70-year old photographer with the ball. Along with writing for and publishing the magazine, Mark speaks to audiences around the U.S. and is the author of the book, Through The Perilous Fight: Living a Life of Challenge. Mark and his wife Julie belong to college age twins and a pug-dog named Murphy just a little north of Seattle. Email Mark at Mark@IncrediblePeople.com

 

picture2Jim Mulenos is a co-founder and publisher of Incredible People Magazine and operates as our CEO and CFO. Jim is a software developer by profession but is also a true multi-talented, Renaissance man...musician, athlete, philosopher, great dad, and amazing fixer of most anything screwed up. He always said that when he grew up he would do three things he wasn't allowed to as a child: jump on the bed, sing at the dinner table, and ride his bike in the house. So he does. Jim, his wife and daughter divide work, school, and play time between the Seattle WA and Sun Valley, Idaho. Email Jim at Jim@IncrediblePeople.com

 

tori pickeral.jpgTori Pickerel-Hammer is IP’s Director of Operations. She had the questionable fortune to make friends with Mark and Jim during college. In spite of their influences, Tori was able to use her myriad talents as a successful businesswoman. She has also been deeply involved in the non-profit sector for over 15 years and brings with her both tremendous experience and passion for making a difference for good.  When she has the time and energy, Tori likes to bicycle, make wool braided rugs, and collect watering cans. Her favorite quote is, “Kid’s don’t care what we know. Kids want to know we care.”  - Wally Watson.  She and her family live transplanted (“I soooo miss the rain of Seattle”) in the Huntington Beach area of Orange County, CA.   Email Tori at Tori@IncrediblePeople.com
