I am 28 years old and currently live in downtown Denver. I moved downtown from Highlands Ranch last year, but grew up and lived in Highlands Ranch my whole life.
Hockey to lacrosse
I grew up playing hockey, and lacrosse was just something I did in the offseason to stay busy and active. It wasn't until after my sophomore year of high school that I started to get serious about lacrosse.
I played in a tournament on the East Coast and started getting college recruiting letters. Instead of trying to go play junior hockey somewhere for two years, I decided I was going to pursue lacrosse in college.
From there, I just worked really hard at it and ended up getting drafted to Major League Lacrosse my senior year (Denver Outlaws).
Outside of the Outlaws
I work at Bow River Capital, which is a private equity firm in Denver. I am on the investor relations team and my favorite part of the job is being able to meet and talk to new people on a daily basis.
My parents still live in Highlands Ranch, so I spend quite a bit of time hanging out with them. I coached lacrosse at Valor Christian High School for three years, and coached several youth teams in Highlands Ranch in the past.
During my free time, I love to play golf with my dad and cook with my mom. I also grew up loving marine biology and still do. I look forward to Shark Week every year.
