What do you love most about Your City?

Denver has a thriving business environment full of innovative startups, unique workspaces, and talented people. There are endless outdoor activities to participate in while enjoying the sunshine. Denver is also close proximity to ski resorts which means you can enjoy the outdoors year-round.

Favorite breakfast meal & restaurant?

Snooze is one of my favorite brunch spots. Their pancakes are incredible.

What are you doing at:

6:00 AM – Around this time, I’m reviewing metrics, reading industry news, catching up on time-sensitive emails, and getting ready to head into the office.

10:00 AM – I try to start my daily meetings around 10:00 a.m., allowing me to have undivided focus time in the early morning. I schedule my most strategic meetings around this time.

12:00 PM - Favorite Lunch spot/meal?

Acorn in the RiNo Art District is a great place for lunch meetings. It has great food and a lively atmosphere.

7:00 PM – By this time, I’m usually home with my wife, eating dinner, relaxing, and unwinding from a busy day in the office.

11:00 PM – Sound asleep.

What drink do you need to get through the day and at the end (and how many)?

One cup of coffee in the morning and depending on the day, a glass of cabernet sauvignon or an old fashioned at night.

Most used App/Favorite Instagram Account?

Flipboard is my favorite app. It’s how I stay on top of current events and marketing industry news.  

What should everyone try at least once?

Saying “yes” to something that you would normally shy away from. This simple word opens up a world of possibilities and experiences that you might have missed out on. You’d be surprised at what you can accomplish by just saying “yes” and giving something a chance.

Where do you enjoy getting lost?

I enjoy getting lost in music. Whether listening to my favorite songs, discovering new artists, or producing music in the studio, I always seem to lose track of time when I’m surrounded by music.
