About Me

The most important things in life are not things.

I am one of the luckiest guys in the world. I am married to the love of my life, Kelly. I have two wonderful children, Zoe and Alex. I've had a great IT career that has taken me all over the world, including being able to live in Zurich, Switzerland for a few years.

And, I've been fortunate enough to take a one-year career break in 2016 to resettle my family in beautiful Breckenridge, Colorado and be a ski bum. Yep, one of the luckiest guys out there!

Skiing is a passion of mine and put in over 120 days on the slopes during the ski bum season. I am still enjoying my resort days and touring in the backcountry.

When I'm not on the slopes, you may find me at the Broken Compass tap room or with any of the other great Colorado craft beers in my hand.

Technology has always been a big part of my life since I got my very first personal computer - a Tandy 1000 TL from RadioShack. I'm back to work now in IT as a Program Manager and get to work from home 100% of the time, which gives me the opportunity to maximize family and mountain time.

    Skiing in the winter and mountain biking in the summer.

  • IT Professional

    Because I love all things tech.

  • Craft Beer Aficionado

    I fear no beer.
