I love the personal responsibility spirit of the west and Colorado in particular. I did not grow up here, but the mountains called me. Each day in the mountains is a good one. I love to mountain bike, ski, hike or just enjoy the sunshine.
I grew up in Louisiana and miss the food and culture. I have traveled around the US and lived in many places. I look forward to visiting them all again, but Colorado is my home.
I will always love my LSU Tigers football team. I even like my crazy mad-hatter coach, Les Miles. Geaux Tigahs If you want to find me on a Saturday in the Fall, check at the Lazy Dog first.
I enjoy my job. It is fun learning about my clients and helping them tell their story. Gerry Spence taught me how to do that. My job is challenging, changing, interesting and I feel good doing it. I like to help people, even in their worst moments.
I do not think the government needs to be in our individual lives as much as they are. For the most part, we can take care of things ourselves. When the government wants to intrude, they should have a really good reason supported by strong evidence. When questioned about it, the government should be held to a high truth standard and back up their testimony with audio and video evidence. Unfortunately, this is not always what happens. I am disturbed by the conservative justices on the US Supreme Court reducing individual rights of ordinary people while expanding the rights of rich, corporations.
