Welcome to Colorado Guy! Enjoy my photo galleries. Read a stupid article about my life. Watch a video. Or listen to my kick ass music. It's all about fun in here... and maybe inspiration now and then.

About Me - I'm a licensed professional counselor by day, and a photographer, mountain climber, road cyclist, adventurer and Colorado poster child the rest of the time. I've biked across America twice, the latest in 2011, and my latest project is finishing my book about my first ride in 2008. I've lived in Colorado Springs, Manitou Springs, Buena Vista, Fruita, Salida, and most recently, back in Buena Vista.

Keep in touch! Follow the insanity on Twitter. Let's connect on Facebook. I'm a big fan of Pinterest. I've uploaded over 900 videos on my YouTube page.
