WHAT DO YOU LOVE MOST ABOUT BEING PART OF CRESTONE?
The people and the company culture! The people at Crestone are some of the smartest and most accomplished individuals I have been around. They bring a level of professionalism and excellency that is both rare and motivating. Working in this environment pushes you to be the best you can be.
WHAT DO YOU LOVE TO DO OUTSIDE OF WORK?
Outside of work, I love to explore all that Colorado has to offer including golfing, tennis, skiing, hiking, running, and climbing. I grew up in New Mexico, where I learned to love green chile, so another hobby of mine has been trying to find the best green chile entrees in the Denver area. Lastly, I spend my time with my dog, Milo, by taking him on walks and to the park.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE BOOK OR WHAT’s THE MOST INFLUENTIAL BOOK YOU’VE READ?
