About Me

 As a CMU alumnus, with a Bachelor's degree in Mass Communication, and a former Maverick baseball player and coach I got to experience CMU from every angle, both independently and now with my wife and 3 sons. I grew up in Cheyenne Wyoming, and moved to Grand Junction in 1996 to start my college experience and graduated from CMU in 2001. After a starting a broadcasting career in Wyoming, I quickly moved back to Grand Junction to continue my career in broadcasting, and also pursue a passion for coaching baseball for the Mavericks. In 2007 my wife Stacy and I added the first of 3 sons to our family, and we haven't slowed down since. We loved taking our boys fishing, hiking, camping, snowmobiling, swimming and every other activity the Western Slope has to offer. In 2014 a new opportunity brought our family to the Front Range, and I transitioned from athletics to admissions with CMU. We miss the Grand Valley, but being an admissions counselor for CMU has been the most rewarding job I've ever had, and allows us to keep in contact with all of our wonderful friends on the Western Slope.

Favorite thing about Grand Junction

Grand Junction and the surrounding communities are easily some of the most versatile playgrounds in the country. It’s the only place I’ve been where you can access world class snowmobiling/skiing in the morning, and play a warm round of golf in the afternoon on the same day! I'm also an avid fly fisherman and hiking enthusiast, and the Western Slope is the perfect setting for our family outings to catch a few trout, or just enjoy the stunning scenery with access to all of this, just minutes from your front door.

Grand Junction is also easily the best “Baseball Town” in the region, with top notch college and professional baseball being played from February to October. A baseball lover’s dream!
