  • Cities lived in: Denver, Lakewood, Littleton. Um yeah so pretty much Colorado
  • What do you do in your spare time? Rock and roll. Outdoors stuff – ski, bike, camp. Lately it’s been a lot of home remodeling. Drawing and painting.
  • Travel memories of note: I’ve been to some wonderful places, both on business and vacation. Latest vacation was to a smaller island off Puerto Rico which had wild horses roaming the beach, chickens crossing the road and lots of rainbows over stunning skyscapes. Not to mention great food, friendly locals and cold beer. So pretty much perfect!

  • Unexpected fun fact: For a tall, gangly dude I’m actually a pretty good dancer.
  • A really big accomplishment: Being a father.

  • Who knew? For a tall gangly dude, I really stink at basketball.
  • Family matters: We love Saturday night dance parties!
  • Why marketing? Where else could I get this type of roller coaster excitement besides bungee jumping? That and the rewards from client and team successes – it’s a real high.
