I AM Seattle Center-Roy Berris

ROY BERRIS, Senior Crew Chief, KeyArena at Seattle Center.

Roy has been working at the Seattle Center for twenty years. He leads the team that changes the floor at KeyArena, transforming it for a variety of events, from ice rinks to basketball courts, and many a rock concert in between.

“I am from the Phillipines. I arrived here as an immigrant in 1993. Then I started working as an intermittent (part-time worker) here in 1996. I was also working full-time at Boeing. So when I got laid off at Boeing, I took a full-time position over here and that’s where I stayed, working for the City of Seattle. It’s a trip. You don’t expect what you’re going to do. It’s a blessing, especially with all my crew.” #IAmSeattleCenter #immigrant #KeyArena #blessings
