I’m a Colorado native raised in Parker, schooled at the Colorado School of Mines (GO Orediggers!), and currently living and working in Denver. I’m a metallurgical engineer aka I studied metals and mining, and I work for a company that manufactures equipment to help mines recover valuable material while using less resources like energy and water. I’m an avid traveler with 6 continents and 32 countries down and I love to cook. I found running in my mid-twenties, after thinking all my life that I didn’t like to run. After several years of doing the Denver Run Series, completing Ragnars in Arizona and Texas, and feeling that telltale runner’s high–I am hooked.

What’s my HAL: Family (including my furry family members), running, lifting heavy, STEM friends, new destinations.
