I grew up in Spokane Washington and moved to Seattle at the age of 19. I moved to Denver 7 years ago. I have been involved with non-profit organizations from a young age including a LGBTQIA+ youth group, a queer men’s activism group in my 20’s and a non-profit homeless shelter that mainly worked with those dealing with chronic substance abuse. Non-profit work is close to my heart and the only thing I can imagine doing as a career. I live with my partner Mike and our 2 year old lab/border collie mix Bean. We are very involved in the local Denver music scene and LGBTQIA+ community.
