WHERE DID YOU GROW UP? 
I grew up in North Boulder around Wonderland Lake. 

 

WHAT BRINGS YOU THE MOST JOY IN YOUR CRAFT?
Obviously seeing the final product and all of the hard work come to fruition is amazing. When you are part of helping a client’s dream become a reality, it’s gratifying. But for me, the ultimate reward is making a wonderful place for my employees to work, and creating a process that our clients enjoy. Lots of people can build a beautiful house, but the intangibles are our craft. 

 

YOUR FAVORITE HOLIDAY DESTINATION? 
I’m a beach guy. We typically go to the East Cape of Baja and spend time in some of the desolate none tourist areas. 

 

FAVORITE FOOD?
Any combination of steak and grilled vegetables. 

 

DREAM DINNER GUEST? 
Mohammad Ali

 

YOU GEEK OUT ON…
Cleaning my car and keeping my garage organized.

 

MOST TREASURED ITEM?                                                                     

It’s probably the flag that my grandfather was buried in. 

 

DO YOU COLLECT ANYTHING?                                                Not really, but I have way too many pairs of skis and bikes. 

 

WHAT QUALITY DO YOU ADMIRE MOST IN PEOPLE?                                                                   

I admire when people are kind to people that they don’t have to be. It’s easy to be nice when you want something from someone. But being nice to people when no one is looking is amazing quality. 

 

WHAT DO YOU DO IN DENVER FOR FUN?                                                                     

Taking my kids on adventures in the outdoors is one of my favorite things. Spending time exercising outside is such a big part of my life, and I love getting my two daughters into it. I also love to go out to eat. The food scene in Denver is becoming world class.  

 

WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE QUOTE?
