I began working in the specialty outdoor and ski industries in 1987 at Perfect North Slopes in Lawrenceburg, IN. The song goes "I was born in the summer of my 27th year", for me it was my 23rd when I moved to Colorado. I was fortunate to be hired onto the team at Neptune Mountaineering as a screw monkey, eventually Gary Neptune entrusted me to buy and manage hardgoods inventory. In 2000, I joined Aplin Sales, as an associate sales representative under the tutelage of Stevie Sidner and Mark Vaughn. Then, in June 2004, Kirk Haskell and I joined forces to create the "high performance" and service focused KNS Reps.
Through the years I’ve enjoyed skiing, mountain biking, climbing and fly fishing in France, Switzerland, Italy, Western Canada, California, West Virginia, Kentucky, Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Wyoming, New Mexico, Utah, Alaska and Colorado. While my current exploits do not involve big walls and the steepest descents, my wife and I enjoy family time chasing our two young sons down slopes, up trails and netting trout.
Challenges encountered, lessons learned, customer and vendor interactions in the dynamic retail environment keep me ever ready for tomorrow's adventures.
