Interview with Clay Pearson & Sofie Castacio, SACC-Houston
SACC-Houston recently welcomed Clay Pearson and Sofie Castacio as new members of the SACC-Houston board. Clay Pearson describes himself as far from a native Swede, but instead as a long-time "Swedeophile". He grew up in Lindsborg, Kansas, where he describes it as mandatory to admire Sweden. Furthermore, Clay served on the board of SACC-Detroit before moving to Texas. Sofie Castacio first lived in Hawaii where she met her husband. Work brought them both to Houston, and Sofie to the SACC-Houston board. Viktoria Blecko, also a member of SACC-Houston, interviewed them both about their new positions on the board of SACC-Houston.

Welcome to SACC, would you like to tell us a bit about yourself? 
I moved to Austin in June last year from Stockholm, Sweden. I'm originally from Västervik, a small town about three hours south of Stockholm that's claim to fame is being the hometown of Stefan Edberg and Björn Ulvaeus. My wife, Katie, is American and her two brothers live in Austin. When we decided to move to the States, Austin felt like a great place to start our American adventure.
