When I tell people I’m from BEAUTIFUL Elizabeth, Colorado (Pop. 1,394), the stock reply is, “I bet you know how to roll a fucking joint.”
Less often, they’ll say “I bet you know how to swing a fucking golf club,” or, “I’ve been to the rodeo in Elizabeth!” While I’m proud of my joint rolling skills, the second and third retorts will lead to a more animated response. I played college golf, and spent six years as a PGA Professional post graduation. To the chagrin of my father, a rancher who finds trophy buckles frivolous, and never misses an opportunity to remind me that with his horsemanship skills, spurs just aren’t necessary, I’d trade all of my golf accomplishments for one scored ride on a damn bull.
I’ve always idolized rodeo cowboys. Beyond that I live to ski, and to languish over each precious word in my teleplays that focus on human drama, and feature sport. Some talking points: When I'm not producing podcasts, I produce micro budget independent films. Do you have $80,000 and an idea for a movie? Are you willing to let me direct? Let's chat... I'm a competitive racquet sports player. Some career highlights: I won the 2013 Denver (squash) Open and averaged 9.7 points per game (WOW!) during that tournament. I won the (b draw of the) 2014 Denver Open.
Events outside my control (injuries, graduate school) have allowed me to pack on more than 60 pounds since this victory but I still move around the squash court pretty well. One time I lost to my nemesis, Danny Nolan, in the first round of a table tennis tournament. I played my way through the entire b draw to secure a rematch with Nolan, then lost to him AGAIN in the championship game.
I LOVE college basketball. This, alongside of my background in golf and racquet sports has made me a bracketology expert. Curious why a team didn't qualify for the World Baseball Classic? Are you ranking something against five or more other things?
