ABOUT ME!

Welcome! and thanks for stopping by!

A brief history about me:

I was born in Lincoln, Nebraska and went to college at Iowa State University in Ames, IA. I graduated with a professional Bachelors of Architecture degree in 1993. With limited options for architecture and design during that time I branched out and ended up applying for, and getting an entry level job, for a software company in West Des Moines, IA. Yes, software in West Des Moines… who knew? Not me before I applied for the job.

I met the person who would become my wife while working for that software company. I moved out to Lakewood, CO in 1995 to be with her, and start a new job with another software company located in downtown Denver, and we got married in the summer of 1996 on top of Copper Mountain, Colorado. I have two amazing young adults as children, Maddison, 17 and Darr, 15.

Over the last 22 years my wife and I have run a computer consulting, reseller and web design company. At one point we were in the top 100 woman owned companies in Colorado for a couple of years. I’ve worked for two software companies and one digital signage company and currently work for one of the largest law firms in the Rocky Mountain West as a Director.

After moving around Denver over the last 22 years we moved back to Lakewood and purchased our current home. We moved here for many of the same reasons you might live here: Great quality of life, close to downtown, where I work. Convenient, and amazing, shops and services and a great city with an amazing past and future.

I’ve attended a multitude of neighborhood board meetings and city meetings, met with current, and former, city representatives and completed the Lakewood Planning 101 course. Throughout all of these events there is one thread that I have found. Lakewood is full of compassionate and caring citizens who want to insure Lakewood maintains its unique place, history and character far into the future. I want that as well.

I look forward to being part of this great community now, and in the future, and I look forward to speaking with you about your experience here, your history, and your desires for our community.
