I was born in Tahoe but I grew up in the Reno area and have always been a small town guy at heart but Reno always brought out the city in me. It’s got an energy that really you can’t feel anywhere else, one minute you can be in the urban center along the Riverwalk, the next you can be driving through the country where still, horses and cows roam. I love Reno because I can be who I am here. I can be that ranching/rodeo cowboy AND urban dweller supporting the latest downtown business venture because in Reno, it’s not just one state of mind, it’s two. And it fits my personality quite well. I’ve learned here, I met my love here, I’ve made my best of friends here and I became who I am today, here. And I’ll take that with me wherever I go.
