What Is One Special Thing About the Place You Grew Up?
Being a 3rd generation native Coloradoan, one of the most special things is getting to experience the same places that the two generations before me got to experience! The same schools, restaurants, landmarks, etc. It is also so amazing to meet people that know my family from way back in the day! Oh, and the snowcapped mountains… they’re pretty special too.

What Is Your Favorite Family Tradition?
Many years ago I received quite an unattractive hat as a gift. It was hysterical and became an ongoing joke between my sister and I.

What’s the Best Concert You’ve Ever Been To? What Made It So Special?
Though not necessarily a favorite band, Blues Traveler at Red Rocks on 4th of July back in 1997 was the best! My mother and I decided that day that we should go, drove up on a whim, scalped tickets and soaked up all that is Red Rocks! We could see so many firework displays on the horizon. It was amazing! Musically, probably Jethro Tull, also at Red Rocks!
