Nick's info

I am originally from Louisiana but traveled a lot to visit with family in Colorado and Arizona growing up. Having two biologist for parents, I spent a lot of time outdoors. I spent my summers on Lake Michigan while they taught summer courses. Most of the family activity was hiking. I still love to hike, backpack, and camp. I lived in Northern Virginia for about 4-5 years where I picked up climbing (gym first, moving to crag). After moving to Colorado last year, I made friends through Gociety and started to pick up trail running. I love just being outdoors and traveling when I can. It's great to be in an area where there are many with the same mindset and it is a great way to make new friends (which is hard to do once you leave school!). I currently work as a pipeline engineer in the DTC and live in Evergreen with my wife, Lauren, my doberman-ish dog, Cypress, and my 3-legged cat, Moon Pie.
