    Welcome to Colorado Saram!

    I grew up in the famous ski resort town of Vail, but now live in Daegu, South Korea, with my wife Lucy and dog, Winnie.

    I continue to live and value the Colorado lifestyle, but do so while following my passion for international travel in Asia and beyond.

    I write about international skiing, hiking, outdoor adventure, dog-friendly travel, travel gear, and more.

    I hope you'll find this content helpful and entertaining.
