A small-town boy from the mountains of southwestern Pennsylvania, I came to Colorado to ski bum for one season—then planned to hit LA and find fame/fortune—but never left. When not behind the mic or creating advertising or writing magazine features, I'm skiing the bumps, golfing, biking, camping, fishing, attending concerts, playing blues harmonica, walking the dog or hanging out with family and friends.
