"I'm a skier. I love being on a mountain peak and looking out at the big vista. Colorado is so perfect for that. With Topo Designs, I'm building something that fits what I like to do. There's no secret to all this, or some weird trick, and that's really comforting to me.
It's about finding something you love, and putting a lot of work into it.
I've got just enough naiveté to be pretty optimistic about things. I believe things are going to work. Yes, the stress of starting a business is very real, but it's mostly just about pushing forward, and working the problem. Maybe that blind, but it's something I feel good about it."
What I Love Most About Denver
"It's easy living! There's a real sense of community here, and the city feels friendly and small town-ish. Denver hits of all cylinders. Plus, you can bike everywhere."
My Denver Musts
"Hop on bikes and ride around town. I'd start on Larimer Street and hit Cart-Driver, then Bar Fausto and Cuba Cuba as your halfway point. After, hit Adrift Tiki Bar on South Broadway and finish up across the street with drinks at Sputnik as your last port-of-call.
My Favorite Topo Designs Product
Our Mountain Briefcase. It's 3 bags in 1. It's a backpack, a laptop case and a great every day carry. It's good everywhere."
