A lifelong Coloradoan, John graduated from the University of Northern Colorado in 1996 with a degree in Business Administration and Computer Information Systems. He spent the next fifteen years developing accounting software and Internet-based, workflow collaboration solutions.

It includes elements of Frisco, Red Feather, Glenwood Springs, Georgetown, Lyons, and even Estes Park.

I chose to go with a fictitious town to allow for some creativity in how the community was spread out. (less)
