I am a Research Associate and spend lots of time with my head in the data. So, when I'm not working, I love to be outside. That's why I love living in Golden. I can walk out my door and climb up multiple hiking and mountain biking trails. I also love that downtown "old town" Golden is 5 minutes away, with lots of restaurants, bars, museums, parks and Clear Creek close at hand. And I'm 1 hour from the best skiing in the country, Summit County. And when I want to rock out--Red Rocks Amphitheatre is 2 miles from my house. Sometimes in the summer when the wind is right--you can hear the concerts in the distance. But mostly I love to ride my bike--and the foothills of Golden (email hidden) to cycle--I start out at 6200 feet riding out my driveway--so the altitude keeps me challenged.
