It's all about me

I'm the site manager and editor of PikesPeakSports.us, the digital stomping ground for the outdoor community.
I've lived in the area since 1967, back in the day when our family milked cows for a living on a dairy farm near Calhan.
Graduated from the University of Southern Colorado (now Colorado State-Pueblo) in 1982. Worked at The Gazette for many years, first as a sports writer, then helped launch the Gazette's citizen journalism and social media projects.
I've written a lot of words and I loved and fretted over all of them.
I'm fascinated by the online world we live in, social media and the changes that are sure to come.
I'm low maintenance. Just give me my drawing stuff and painting easel, brushes and oils, my fly-fishing rod, mountain bike, trail-running shoes, Tom Petty on the iPod, a piece of dirt for my garden, my guitar, my beautiful wife and daughter, and a good cup of coffee ... you'll get no trouble out of me.
