Jim Krantz was born in Vancouver, BC and was raised in Los Angeles, CA. He moved to Seattle in 1992 to work for Microsoft and is currently raising four children with his wife, Sara Canady, a teacher at the Seattle Waldorf School. His interest in anthroposophy was ignited when Sara was in Sound Circle Teacher Training; this led to him taking the Foundation Year, a year he describes as "one of the best years of my life". Jim is an avid backyard chicken farmer and dreams of someday having a biodynamic farm.
Jim currently serves as the SCC board president.
