I was born and raised in Glenwood Springs, CO. I have been lucky enough to live in CO for my entire life but have also been fortunate enough to do a bit of traveling. I also spent a lot of time in the Grand Junction/ Fruita region while growing up.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE MOVIE AND WHY?
What a tough question…. Depends on the genre honestly. The Martian was a great movie and so was the Revenant.
WHAT WOULD YOUR DREAM VACATION BE?
My dream vacation would be to participate in a kayaking expedition/ tour in South America OR do an extended trip with a couple weeks of backpacking, climbing, biking and kayaking in South America or Europe.
WHAT’S SOMETHING PEOPLE WOULDN’T GUESS ABOUT YOU?
I really enjoy space and astronomy, and if I am ever given the chance, I plan on visiting the space outside of our atmosphere.
WHAT BOOKS ARE ON YOUR NIGHTSTAND?
I have a wide range, from fiction to politics and even religion to architecture and lighting. I really enjoy reading and will give just about any book a try and see how it goes. I currently have a small collection consisting of architecture, philosophy, religion, politics, fiction, poetry and technical content from school.
WHAT’S THE BEST PLACE YOU HAVE EVER VISITED?
For a culture experience, Kibera, Kenya when I was volunteering with a non-profit (The Human Needs Project). For a vocational location, Vanuatu, which are some islands just west of Fiji. Finally for a just general exciting trip or place, the bottom of the Grand Canyon.
