I was born in Aspen and grew up in Carbondale which is just down the Roaring Fork Valley from Aspen. Clearly, I grew up skiing and snowboarding. My father was a painting contractor and property manager in Aspen. My mother was a school teacher.
I went to college at the University of Northern Colorado, in Greeley, graduated with a communications degree and minor in media studies. After college, I moved to Vail where I lived the ski bum life working in restaurants. After three years in Vail, I met my now fiancé, Erica. We are getting married August 20, 2022.
After living in Vail, Erica and I went traveling. To make a long story short: Hilton Head Island S.C., Boynton Beach Fl, Park City Utah and San Diego Ca. After living in San Diego, we got an offer to teach English in China. From here we traveled all over Asia: Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Laos, Malaysia, Indonesia, and Taiwan. Most of our time was spent in Cambodia and Vietnam. After this we had the opportunity to get a working holiday visa for Australia where we spent 12 months working/traveling the entire country. After Australia, we moved back to Vietnam where we spent about another year.
We were traveling for 8-9 years and finally moved back to the States straight to Steamboat. We spend our time skiing/snowboarding as much as possible, mountain biking, golfing and fishing. We also love to camp as much as we have time for. Steamboat has been a great home for about three years and absolutely love it. Traveling will always be a great passion of ours!
