I'm an outdoorsman at heart. Playing and watching sports, fishing and hunting are things that I've enjoyed doing with my three brothers and my father since childhood. My sons, Finley and Baron, already share this passion for the outdoors and an active lifestyle with me. My wife and I enjoy seeing live music, especially at outdoor venues like Red Rocks Amphitheater. We also love traveling, being on the lake and spending time in the mountains. (With office locations in both Denver and Minneapolis, I'm able to enjoy both the lakes and the mountains year round!)
