“Colorado is evolving into such an incredible place. The amount of sunny days, the active and balanced lifestyle between work and play is something to be proud of, and I’m pretty sure we’re all responsible for creating such a positive lifestyle State. We all like to work hard and play hard, and we have a good idea of what’s truly important in life. Maybe it’s the mile-high mountain air, but we’re pretty laid back and extremely passionate about our work here in Denver.”
