Where would you live other than Colorado?
I cannot imagine living any place other than Colorado because I love the mountains, the weather, and the people. But if I had to pick another place to live, it would probably be someplace like New Zealand because they have incredible mountains as well as the ocean. I hope to get a chance to visit!
How do you spend your free time?
I spend a lot of my free time with my family. We enjoy spending time with each other, playing games, watching movies, and laughing together. We try to squeeze in a baseball game or two every year. Being a Colorado Native, I grew up in a Bronco Lovin' household, so I try to watch the games during football season.
I recently got the opportunity to help the kids learn to snowboard. It was a blast helping them learn a sport that I grew up enjoying. But when I am able to spend some free time on my own, I love mountain biking. Colorado has some of the best trails in the country just a few minutes outside of the Metro area. It is a great way to clear my head, get some exercise, and be in the wonderful Colorado outdoors.
What are your three favorite Colorado Must See Spots?
If you come to Colorado, you cannot miss Coors Field. One of the most beautiful spots in Downtown Denver. Another one of my favorites is Arapahoe Basin. It is where I grew up learning how to ski and snowboard at A-Basin, so I have some nostalgic feelings about that place. A-Basin has a wonderful atmosphere, has a great carefree feeling, and is usually first ski area to open and last to close. A fantastic place to spend a day on the slopes. Finally, you cannot miss Breckenridge in any season. The ski season is great, but I have had some of my very best times in Summer and Fall. The town is very charming and has lots of character (and some characters) but there is always lots to do and some great places to eat. Breck is one of the places we find ourselves every year.
