I’m from Colorful Colorado! I grew up not far from Edgewater in Lakewood.
What’s the best part of being a Colorado native?
The best things about being a CO native is that I get to call this beautiful state my Home, and I’m prepared for all of Colorado’s whacky weather.

The beer is awesome, the people are great, the staff is hardworking and fun, and of course all the dogs! Joyride has a great atmosphere and I never dread going to work.
What do you like to do for fun when you’re not working?
Well I have two dogs, so I’m always trying to get them outta the house, whether it be to the dog park or for a hike when I can. I love to get out and do some camping in the summer, that’s always a must. I’m also big on concerts.
What’s your favorite type of music/band?
I love music, it’s hard to have a favorite! Reggae, country, rock, all of it! Just depends on the mood I’m in. IRATION, Dierks Bentley, and Tom Petty are always in the playlist.

Antigua, a small island in the Caribbean. I was there for a month and loved it! Such a relaxed way of living, great people, beautiful views, and awesome afternoon rain showers.
