Favorite way to earn your beers: Shredding the gnar on my snowboard or mountain bike.  If I’m truly honest though….anything outside. I’m an avid hiker and backpacker and can really always be found with a beer in hand after any adventure or when chilling by any mountain lake with a fishing pole or just at the local brewery.

mountain-bike-field-agent-jaradYour go-to RIMBY trip: With so many amazing places in this world it’s hard to pick an area.  I have a hard time going back to places I have been before as I want to explore so many other areas around us.  With that said, I usually always find my way to some areas around the special mountain towns of Colorado and places in Utah several times a year. 

What you never leave home without: A Camera and a koozie.

You’re definitely not an expert at: Trying to maintain a garden.

Spirit animal: Bear.  Grounded and a good leader.   

Favorite outdoor cause(s): Leave no Trace, Protect our Winters and the International Mountain Bike Association (IMBA) or the Colorado Mountain Bike Association (COMBA).

Favorite MS products:

  1. MS Hybrid Camp Jacket. Such a unique style in this jacket that is very functional as well. I love it and find myself wearing it all the time.
  2. Camp and Utility Socks. Love these things. Use them mountain biking and hiking and just general lazy lounging.
  3. MS Packable Jacket. This thing packs up so small and weighs so little. I take it backpacking and mountain biking. 

Two truths, one lie: I have a fierce hat collection.  I’m an Eagle Scout.  I’m not a Colorado native.
