My Story

"We took a trip in the wilds of Quebec. We had 12 days of continuous rain. You're wet, and you're miserable. You've gone through all this stuff. But that built and created in each of us a whole different type of relating to each other. We became a team. We became fire hardened through the adversity. When the good times came, they seemed so much better because they were with all these people with whom you attained so much."

What I Love Most About Denver

"I love the people! Colorado is a true melting pot, especially for young people. Denver's music scene is incredible. We've got more live music venues than Nashville or Austin!"

My Denver Musts

"There's so much to this city. I'd say take a long bike ride, then head to Wynkoop Brewing Company. From there, go across the street to the shops and restaurants at Union Station. I love to look out and tell people how years ago, that was all just rubble and bricks and broken glass as far as the eye could see! Today, look at it - it's beautiful. Also, it's never a bad thing to take someone to drive to the top of Mount Evans."

My Advice for Others

"I always say work hard, be nice and don’t ever quit. I think that's true in life, relationships and in business."
