He’s Been Here a While…
While I can’t say that I was born in Boulder, I can say that Boulder is my home. I arrived in 1977 for the rock climbing, cycling, food, and culture. I stayed and went to CU and graduated with a BFA. I worked at the Spoke (bike shop), Novan Energy (solar energy), and various other Boulder companies.
After 31 years as owner and partner, I have retired from Marketing Technologies, a technical sales company, selling US made custom metal and plastic parts from US manufacturers to US equipment manufacturers. My time as a business owner and employer has given me an understanding of how companies, both large and small, work, survive, grow, thrive and sometimes fail.
I met Jill, my wife of 36 years and partner in life, here. We feel fortunate to have raised our two kids, Molly and Reed, here in this community that we love so much. Our family has settled and grown in Boulder, including our children and their spouses, our two grandchildren, elderly parents, and siblings.
I actively examine all aspects of my life and my impact on the planet. While not always successful, I am committed to my personal goals for the environment, my community and the greater world. I know Boulder:
From the preschools to the senior centers.
By having lived in rental apartments on the Hill and in Goss Grove to single family homes in Central and North Boulder.
Because my work experience spans roughneck in the oil field to solar sales, retail to manufacturing and ultimately building a local business with a 30+ year history in Boulder.
From volunteering in schools, to serving on boards and commissions, to getting dirty building trails, to being a lifetime blood donor to driving for Meals on Wheels.
