Your adventure starts...where? Tahiti. I love that it's so remote and I imagine there are pristine beaches on every one of its 118 islands.

A great moment for you: Crossing the finish line of my very first marathon. Miles 21 through 26 are a little hazy, but the euphoria of finishing was beyond exhilarating.

Your passions outside of work: Golfing, hiking, skiing, mountain biking (I just bought a new bike for morning excursions), and trail running.

A quote that inspires you: "When I give, I give myself." - Walt Whitman

Why I live in Utah: I was born here; I was even raised on the very plot of land my family has homesteaded since 1852. Plus, Utah is the perfect playground for me.

Best place you've lived: Guanacaste province in Costa Rica located. The people there are very cool and I loved learning to speak their language.

First job: I was a grease monkey in the pit at Q-lube. I worked every day after school for a year (my dad owned the shop and made me commit to working for one year). I quit the day I hit my one year mark and, believe me, by then I wanted to get an education—I DID NOT want to spend the rest of my life under cars.
