CPRA friends and colleagues, I am honored to be part of our amazing professional association. After growing up in Boulder and graduating from UNC (Go Bears!) it took leaving our great state for many years to appreciate just what a valuable privilege we have to be professional PR practitioners in Colorado. Since returning I have worked on the front-range (Lafayette) and western slope (Meeker) and balance time in the office with a healthy (mostly ) pursuit of a wide variety of recreation activities, including: handball, basketball, hiking/backpacking, mountain biking, hunting, fishing, snowboarding, etc. Personally I’m beyond blessed to be married to my best friend of 20+ years and be dad to two amazing kids.
