Growing up in Iowa, he did Iowa things like playing football, working on cars, and caucusing. At Iowa State he studied graphic design before eventually majoring in Communications on his way to a Masters and Doctoral degree (we know, he doesn't look like the literary type, but he be smart). He moved to Colorado, the first time, for work. After following his career to Chicago and getting married, he talked his wife into moving back to Colorado (thanks Sara!). Since then, he has been fascinated with fly fishing and an outdoor lifestyle. Through it all, he has always been a craftsman. When you mix that with his easy boredom and need for something to take apart or put together, it's a perfect mix for a rod builder.
