Born and raised in Colorado. Have no desire to leave the Denver area. Studied engineering at the Colorado School of Mines and work at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory working on making commercial buildings more grid friendly and energy efficient. I'm still in school and attend University of Colorado Boulder in the Building Sciences Program. Love the outdoors, walking, hiking, star gazing, bbqs, sharing time with the family, teaching anything, listening to music, playing the bass guitar, computers, programming, video games, and movies. Motto: Live and love freely.
