What do you do for fun when you aren't working at Western?

When I’m not at work, you can usually find me playing music in my Americana band. The rest of the time, I’ll be out hiking, biking, or fishing in the beautiful Gunnison area! 

What is your favorite meal at your favorite Gunnison or Crested Butte restaurant?

Honestly, I don’t have a “favorite” meal here…but I love Thai food! There are a bunch of great local restaurants up and down the valley.

What is your favorite thing about living in Gunnison?

My favorite thing about living in Gunnison is the community itself. Every person you meet has a friendly personality, a fascinating story, and a passion in life. Folks here are eager to grow—and are always ready for a new adventure!

Random fact about yourself?

A random fact is that I someday want to raise bees.
