Bachelor’s in history, Tulane University, New Orleans.
Your typical non-native Coloradoan, I grew up in Chicago, went to college in New Orleans, and moved to Denver as a journalist covering the broadband internet industry in 2001. After joining the staff of the Summit Daily News in Frisco in 2005 — first as a copy editor, next as a reporter, and finally as the News Editor — I joined the Daily Sentinel newsroom as an assistant editor in 2007.
My wife and I recently returned from a year living and working abroad in South America, exploring much of Patagonia in between stops in Buenos Aires and Santiago, Chile. We are happy to be back in Colorado, though, where we hike, bike, ski and snowboard every chance we get.
