Human Movement Staff
If Jerry Garcia and Richard Branson had a kid, it would probably look a lot like our big kahuna.
Jeff has been at more events than Mick Jagger and picked up more road cones than all Arapahoe County Jail inmates combined.
His biggest accomplishment in life is winning a year's salary off of poker legend, Doyle Brunson.
Jeff graduated from Western Michigan University and started graduate school at the University of Colorado. If you ask him, he only did this to have a better football team to tailgate for. Go Buffs!
If Woody Allen and John Wooden had a baby, it might resemble the Co-Founder of Human Movement, Aaron.
Aaron puts the Human in Human Movement. This little humanitarian world traveler has seen it all and done most of it all. For good or bad.
Aaron is a CU Buff by education, but a UCLA Bruin by blood.
One of Aaron's biggest accomplishments is winning the ESPN Radio Genius contest against thousands of other kids who still live at home in their parents basements.
When Aaron isn't saving the Orca's in China, or planting trees in South America he can be found surfing the beaches of Malibu County or putting bio diesel in his Subaru.
VP of Sales
Back in the early 80's there was a log cabin on Mt. Stowe that didn't have electricity or indoor plumbing, but made up for it's shortcomings by providing a roof for the super star we know as Jenna V.
Jenna's folks left the hippie life on Mt. Stowe when she was four years old for the metropolis of Crested Butte, Colorado where Jenna captained the men's varsity soccer team. Jenna took her talents to Boulder and rocked out her undergrad at the University of Colorado.
You can usually find Jenna hiking the Front Range with her golden retriever "Brek" or shredding the gnar on her girly snowboard.
Chief Creative Officer
If Paul Bunyon and Steve Jobs had a baby, it would come out looking like Tony (AKA - ToRo).
ToRo runs all things design and technical at the HMM offices and also does an incredible Fargo impersonation. He graduated from the University of Wisconsin at Stevens Point with his BFA in graphic design.
A cheese-head native, Tony first landed in the high country via Vail, Colorado working in advertising & design for many of the Colorado Resorts.
You can typically find Toro hanging with his dog Zulu, building random science projects and hanging with the coolest girl on the planet.
VP of Operations
If Beyonce and Mayor Bloomberg had a late night session after a Garden Concert, the offspring would resemble our Controller Shelley. She's a boss, with style.
For all you tri geeks out there, there's no better person to know than this girl. Shelley was the CFO for 13 years at Ironman and also created all registration operations, among 1,000,000 other tasks.
It make take you a few seconds to pick up on Shelley's southern twang, but don't let that sweet voice fool you...she's one tough mama. If you want a job with HMM, better start puckering up to this lady.
When Shelley isn't memorizing further decimal places for π, you can also find this southern gal huddled around the heater in the finance office.
As legend has it, Lindsey showed up for one day of high school golf practice and was nominated for All Team, All Region and All State.
It's a tough pill for our owner to swallow, but Ms Miller is HMM's top athlete. She made it rain at the University of Virginia playing futbol and turned down the WNBA to come to work for Human Movement. Wise decision.
Lindsey made it to the Rocky Mountains after a brief 18 year stay in New Hampshire. She's an avid Patriots, Celtics and Red Sox fan. Sorry fellas, she was almost perfect.
If Lincoln Hawk and Bernie Marcus (founder of Home Depot) made sweet snooki while vacationing in Alaska, their baby would be Andrew our Operations Manager.
Andrew joined us after his national tour of living in our Nation's capital to the Last Frontier. Mr. Clark did a stint at the World Triathlon Corporation before jumping on the Human Movement band wagon.
Andrew graduated from the University of Alaska Fairbanks and now lives in Denver, Colorado. Some team members say that the reason he was really hired at HMM was because he can quote the Big Lebowski cover to cover.
When Andrew isn't keeping the office in line or shipping equipment around the country, you can find him hanging with his lady friend in the Rocky Mountains...The Dude abides.
Manager of Human Resources
Don't let her good looks and big smile fool you, Jill cut her teeth on the streets of Detroit. (Everybody from the 313!)
Jill made her way out west after a long stint at General Motors in the Motor City where she was one of their top recruiters.
If you want to get a job working at this joint, you gotta make it through this tough momma first. She's in charge of all things Human Resources at HMM.
When Jill isn't storming through resumes you can typically find her hiking in the mountains with her two golden retrievers [Lady and Brady], her family.
Jill was recently named Yogi of the Month at her local yoga studio. Awesome warrior pose!
If David Beckham and Usain Bolt had a baby boy, it wouldn't have half the skill that our boy Nick has.
Yes, he has two first names, that's because he's awesome.
Though his official title is Series Director, he is a true Jack of All Trades around the Human Movement office.
Nick is a true Colorado native and after dominating the high school soccer world, Nick took his talents down to UCCS for four more years of footie.
Nick lives...in a van down by the river. For real. But he spends most of his time flying from event to event and gets mail delivered to Holiday Inns.
If Rainbow Bright and Bear Grilz had a baby, it would look a lot like Leah.
It would appear that Leah is the nicest girl on the planet until you have dinner with her and she orders a steak salad - hold the lettuce and cook the steak medium raw.
All carnivore jokes aside, Leah is a rock star Director. Her current challenge is organizing The Ugly Sweater Run Series across the globe.
Leah graduated with honors from the University of Colorado (which at CU, means she attended class most days).
When she isn't flying around the country permitting races, you can find Leah at Coors Field. Go Rox.
If Ken and Barbie had a baby, it would look a lot like our Audio Engineer, Landon...hence his nickname "Evil Ken".
Evil Ken grew up in the metropolis of Montrose, Colorado and who would have guessed that he was the high school Quarterback AND homecoming king. Weird. You would never have guessed that by looking at him.
Landon knows all things electronics and audio after being schooled at the University of Colorado Denver. Go Downtown Buffs!
When Landon isn't shopping at Guitar Center, or soldering diodes to an electronic bread board, he enjoys 2 am Grunion Hunting expeditions with his buddies on the beaches of California.
California by blood but not relay-shun. Originally he's from San Diego (A Wales Vagina in Spanish), well actually he was born in Italy, but that didn't really count. Now he calls the Mile High City his crib.
Ryan is so awesome that he lives vicariously through himself. He claims that he went to college, but we all know that he just spent four years living in a locker room drinking PBR at Mercyhurst University - aka - he had a hockey scholarship.
The thing he's most excited about is that the Color Run is headed to Australia this winter. He's a sucker for that accent.
Ok, we checked the records, he actually did graduate from Mercyhurst with a BA in Sports Marketing. Nice work Durnan.
If Katniss Everdeen traveled back in time and had a baby with Abe Lincoln, we're positive it would look like our Logistic Coordinator Whit.
Whit is from the OG Club. Whit and his awesome wife Bre were the original crew that launched the triathlon craze in Tempe, Arizona. They've seen it all and continue to see more each weekend.
Whit's favorite US Monument is the Four Corners...so he decided to live in all four states and has finally settled down in Colorado.
He's generally a really nice guy, unless you mess with one of his multiple equipment trailers or semi trucks. That's your one and only warning.
You may recognize Johnny from such TV commercials as Old Spice and Old Spice. Yes, ladies it's really him.
Don't let his model-esk looks fool you. Johnny is a straight up Cowboy. Wyoming Cowboy that is.
McBride took his talents to the Windy City post college and learned quickly that John Denver is not full of crap. The Rocky Mountains are freaking awesome. So he's back home and we're all happy that he is.
Johnny is an event director for multiple productions at HMM. He rocks our world with his attention to detail and his way of lassoing up the team when they get out of line.
Johnny got his BBA in Finance at the University of Wyoming and now lives in Boulder, Colorado.
In heaven there is no beer. That's why we drink it here...Go Cowboys!
If Van Gogh and McGyver had a one night stand while visiting the Philly Musuem of Art, the offspring would absolutely be Doug.
Doug graduated Columbus College of Art and Design with his BFA in Industrial Design and is a Certified Carpenter. So ummm Doug...can you build 24 mud run obstacles in four weeks and castles for Oktoberfest in 12 hours? Thanks :0
He's the mastermind behind all events at HMM. If a race director can dream it, Doug can build it.
If you're looking for him at an event, just ask for the shirtless guy wearing a cowboy hat and a toolbelt. Ladies, he's available for Bachelorette Parties too.
Dirty Girl Series Director
If Kerri Walsh and Michael Phelps had a baby, Kelsey would still kick it's butt. That's right. We said it.
Kelsey is one of the few Natives of Colorado, but after dominating the swimming and volleyball tournaments of the Rockies, she took her talents southwest. Really, really southwest. Kelsey earned a full ride to the University of Hawaii for swimming. Aloha beeetches.
When Kelsey isn't kicking ass in the water or sand, she's struttin her stuff on the runways as model. We're guessing she's the only model who can lift three barricades at the same time.
If Kelsey didn't get the job at Human Movement, allegedly she had a pan of brownies and a speech about how awesome HMM is prepared. We're still waiting on the speech.
Social Media Director
A long time ago in the Windy City, the Gingerbread Man and Mia Hamm had a weekend fling and created our Social Media Director Mikey B.
Mike left the Windy City of Chicago after terrorizing youth soccer leagues for 18 years and took his talents to West Virginia on a four year soccer scholarship at WVU. Four knee surgeries later, he is still dominating the HMM Co-Ed indoor team.
Mike grew up in the ghetto that we all know as Naperville. Might as well be Compton. Mrs. Brennan kept the family safe by baking the "World's Best Cinnamon Rolls" and housing 18 raccoons in their basement (seriously, we can't make this stuff up).
One of Mike's favorite 48 hours was when he had sole possession of the Fifa World Cup trophy. It slipped out of his hands because he's constantly lathering in SPF 65 to protect his gingerness.
If Sinjin Smith met Xena the Warrior Princess in the Front Range they would have conceived someone like our Logistics Manager, Tyson.
Tyson was born and raised in Boulder, CO. Instead of making the wise decision to become a Buff, he left CO to attend UCSB. After 6 short undergraduate years, Tyson returned back to Boulder…or "the hood" as he calls it.
Tyson comes to us after a stint on the Ironman circuit. He faced a tough choice of joining HMM or pursuing his lifelong dream of becoming a beach volleyball player. His decision became easier when he learned of the new no speedo rule in beach volleyball. Speedos are still encouraged at the HMM office.
Director of OCD
If Pre-Fontaine and Chuck Norris had a baby, it would still fear our OCD Director, Matt.
Don't let Matt's southern charm and good looks fool you, he's one BMF. On Matt's off days, he runs 75 miles as a warm up for his long runs. He's not all tri-geek since he can sling 'cades with the best of them.
Matt made his way to the Rocky Mountains after an 18 year stint in Richmond, VA and four years at ECU. He moved to Boulder to enjoy the government (what's Amendment 64?) and to release his inner hippie.
Except this hippie's body is a temple. We forced him to eat his first fried dinner this year. Sorry Matt.
His biggest fear, and most event guys agree, is getting snowed into a port a john with no toilet paper...and a few other things.
His biggest accomplishment is winning the Whitetail Nude 5k. And with that, we're done with his bio.
If Frank Lloyd Wright consulted with Bob The Builder, they would probably still come ask Davis for his advice.
If the state of Colorado needed a mascot, it would have to be Davis. Born and raised in The Butte, he moved to Boulder to pursue his career as DTB of HMM? What's DTB? You'll have to ask him.
Davis is known to have a wild side. The creators of The Fast and the Furious contacted Davis about creating The Fast and the Furious 13: Forklift Drift staring Paul Walker as Davis. True story.
When he isn’t building something awesome, you can find Davis hanging around Louisville in the Carni Cabin house or redesigning his lovely sister’s new house.
Jimmy “The Driver” Anderson
Manager of Transportation
If Larry the Cable Guy and Sam Elliot made a baby on the set of Tombstone, the spawn would be our Transportation Director Jimmy.
Jimmy made his way west from Kansas City after a career in law enforcement, truck driving, bouncing and being a general bad ass.
Today you typically find Jimmy at an RV Service Center getting the HMM RV fixed or driving one of our 18-wheelers down Interstate 80 to another awesome event.
When Jimmy isn't kicking ass and taking names around the country, you can find him cruising the Rocky Mountains on his Chopper or ironing his pants. Shhhh...don't tell anyone that he's actually a softy.
It was a late fall night when Llyod Christmas and that one lady who played the Mom on Bobby's World met at a Jazz Club in Reno. We'll spare you the details, but thanks to that little run-in, we have our Marketing Director, Calder.
A native of Vail CO, Calder came to HMM after posting a YouTube video that made us laugh. With Calder it's no secret... he loves his Colorado sports teams, overuses the word "bro", and no movie quote is safe.
If he's not at the office working hard or defending his position as the lone CSU Ram fan, he can usually be found yelling at a television because the Rockies game is on. Be sure to watch the snow report in the mountains as well. Should there be more than 12" of new snow on the ground, Calder will be "working from home" all day.
Production Team Leader
If Troy Polamalu and Penélope Cruz got together, they would have procreated our ‘mocha bear’ Raul.
Raul comes to HMM with an impressive event background, we’re still looking for an event that Raul hasn’t helped out with. Even more impressive than his résumé are his skills at NCAA Football & Madden on Xbox. Don’t challenge him, you will lose. Badly.
When he isn’t traveling the country, you can find Raul hanging with his family in their new home state of Colorado.
Ryan “Garth” Garthright
Dirty Girl Series Director
If Conan O’Brian met Kerri Walsh while on a backpacking vacation in the middle of nowhere, they would probably have created our Dirty Girl Series Director, Ryan “Garth” Garthright - So right, he’s wrong, Ryan Garthright.
After attending CSU, Garth decided to pack his things and travel the world, a few times. Now whenever he organizes a team dinner you can expect the place to have a full menu of food you’ve never heard of.
One of the many places he’s visited is Australia. Upon his return, he had high hopes of relocating to Vegas and performing in the “Thunder From Down Under.” Luckily for everyone, that never happened.
When Garth isn’t giving inspirational morning meeting speeches to the Dirty Girl East Coast Crew, you can find him in the mountains or hunting...mainly cougars.
Production Team Leader
If Captain America and and Kat Von D were to make sweet, sweet love the outcome would be our Production Team Lead, Curtis Woody...No relation to Woody Danger Movement, aka “The Dude”.
As a child, Curtis fantasized of becoming a professional Tetris player...and his dream has come true. Nobody can pack a 53’ trailer quite like Curtis.
But don’t let his tattoos and beard fool you, this manly-man can also hit those Carly Rae Jepson high notes. On race day you can typically find Curtis unleashing his golden pipes behind the microphone.
When Curtis isn’t covered in mud at a Dirty Girl Mud Run finish line, you can find him watching every episode of Duck Dynasty...and can you blame him?
Dirty Girl Series Director
Tenzin Gyaltsen (TENZ-IN GYAAL-SEN...I think?). If a sherpa and Pocahontas got stuck together while scaling Everest, the result of that cold night would be our Dirty Girl Series Director, Tenzin.
Tenzin is our company’s scholar, never leaving the hotel without his newest piece of literature in his backpack. Don’t let his nerdish appearance fool you, he is one of our grittiest road warriors and will daringly take on any storm in his signature yellow rain suit.
Tenzin has spent the last year getting his hands dirty as a contract worker with HMM but after months of begging we finally captured him as a full-time employee.
Once upon a time... Lil Wayne and Minnie Mouse had a brief night together in the Four Seasons hotel and the product resembles Allison.
A little more sugar than spice, Allison was born and received her “street cred” in Denver, Colorado and just couldn’t leave the Rocky Mountains. She spent her college years in Boulder as an aspiring female rapper and tried out brief stints with wedding planning and sitting in a cubicle crunching numbers. When she and everyone else realized she had no rhythm, her uncle steered her to HMM where all of her dreams came true.
When she is not coordinating events for HMM, Allison enjoys seeing the world, obsessing over every dog she meets, and showing off her insane jump rope skills to anyone who will watch.
If Ashton Kutcher took a trip to the Mushroom Kingdom and met Princess Peach, the two would have created a son like Jack.
Chicks dig the long ball, and Jack invented it. He took his baseball talents to the “Harvard of the Midwest” on scholarship....We’re obviously talking about Western Michigan University. Go Broncos.
Jack made his way to the rockies via an internship with HMM. After proving he can sling ‘cade like a champ we had to bring him on full time. Not too many people can handle being on the road for six weeks in a row, and Jack embraces every second of it. He had big ambitions to be a dentist, but those dreams got knocked out in NYC.
We like to call him the beekeeper, because when he enters your town he creates quite the buzz. You've been warned.
If Kurt Cobain and Mariah Carey were to have a musical one night stand the outcome would look like our operations man, Stuart Clark.
Stuart packs on two things when he travels for race: his toothbrush, and his guitar. What else do you need? Before he made his way to HMM, he took his guitar talents across the pond to Italy. However, after a few months in Rome he committed himself to the local Gelato Anonymous chapter. He decided it was time to come home.
Stuart's guitar gently weeps, and his beard is the reason. Seriously, this guy can grow a gnarly beard. Nowadays you can find Stuart playing Guitar Hero at the carni cabin in Louisville, or being the jack of all trades on-site.
Whatever you do…never take him out for gelato.
If Jackie Chan and Mulan had a one night stand, the product of that magical, unregretful night would resemble Natasha.
After starring in the Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, 4, 5, and 6, Natasha was hustled out of the fast lane and into the University of Colorado Boulder where she majored in Communication and joined HMM as our Volunteer Coordinator. If you wanna sign up for an upcoming event, come find this girl.
When Natasha isn't organizing volunteers for races across the country, you can find her taking pictures around the Rocky Mountains or silently sobbing to Korean soap operas. Those damn soap operas will get ya, even if you can't understand what they're saying.
If Pippi Longstocking (AKA the freckle-faced redhead girl you wanna know) and Matthew McConaughey had a baby, it would probably turn out a lot like Laurel.
She may look like a lady, but this girl grew up in the foothills of Colorado riding horses, milking goats (for real), and climbing anything in site. She will beat you up a mountain. Something to keep in mind, boys.
She got her first taste of the events scene repping it out for Apple as an undergrad at CU Boulder, and after graduation promptly took off to Alaska to try her hand at fly-fishing with grizzlys… and other rugged Alaskan stuff. After another stop off in Tanzania to volunteer and climb a mountain (that really tall one there) she made her way back to the Rocky Mountains--and the sunshine--where she belongs. She’s decided to stay in one place for a while, and by one place, we mean traveling every weekend for events.
Most days, you can find her running the trails with her dog Lola, sweating it up at her local yoga studio, or playing board games like the grown up she is.
If Superman and Grace Kelly had a daughter, she would look a lot like our Event Director, Liz.
This Colorado Native grew up with an adventitious appetite. After enjoying all the activities the Rocky Mountains had to offer, Liz and her family decided to explore the world. She has now successfully visited over 25 countries and hopes to hit all seven continents…minus Antarctica. She not only spends time discovering new places but also giving back. Most recently, Liz was in South Africa working with orphans.
When Liz isn’t flying across the world trying to improve the lives of children in poverty-stricken lands, you can catch her playing with her favorite nephews and niece in her beloved city Denver.
When Adam Sandler met Lara Croft, they spawned an ambitious and humorous human without the anger management issues and appetite to kick everyone's butt.
Growing up as an identical triplet, it's only appropriate to believe that Matthew honed his sense of humor to become his parent's favorite. As a young boy, Matt had an irrational fear of hurdles, but then he got over it. Raised in the Windy City, Matt believes the best thing that ever happened to him was relocating to Colorado. He then joined the Boulder Bubble, received in-state tuition at CU and began driving a car with a "Native" bumper sticker on it.
When Matt is not snowboarding, playing soccer, hiking or traveling to new pubs / breweries in search of a great, new beer he is looking for new ways to entertain himself.
If Will Ferrell and JLO had a baby, we're pretty sure that baby would be as sweet and spicy as Natalie Plaza.
Rumor has it that back in her home state of Dela-¿dondé?, Plaza was best known for her roundhouse kick. Apparently the CIA saw her in a youtube video and recruited her to become a spy kid. A couple years later she resurfaced at the University of Colorado where she majored in Ultimate Frisbee.
Natalie can be spotted knee deep in a bag of chips or designing logos for fake sports companies. This girl is on fire.
If Forest Gump and Wile E. Coyote had a baby it probably would look nothing like Ashleigh nor be able to keep up with her on race day (sorry, Forrest).
Ashleigh was not only hired for her rockstar
capabilities as our Sponsorship Coordinator, but she also boasts receiving the 2013 Oscar for Best Attempt at Accents of the World and a Grammy for her most recent rendition of My Heart Will Go On by Celine Dion...in the shower.
When Ashleigh isn’t in the office or the recording studio, you can find her training for Half Marathons while also taking over 3 starting positions on the CU Buffs football team.
Zombie Run Series Director
If Chloe, Tarzan and Tinkerbelle found themselves in the same fairytale, you’d be sure they’d be the three best friends that anyone could have.
This bad-@$$ chick is about as granola as she is glam. Born and raised in Eugene, Oregon this duck made her way out to CU for college.. but her true colors will always be green and yellow.
No issues with FOMO here, this girl gets involved with just about everything but event planning has always been her passion.
If Willy Wonka and Shakira had a baby it would probably end up something like this young gentleman right here.
Joey left the sunny beaches of San Diego, CA to become a Buff and does not plan on returning home anytime soon. He joined Human Movement as an intern to gain hands on experience while exploring the country and now he's fully enlisted as our Operations Assistant.
You can typically find Joey on a soccer field doing his best to join the HMM coed team...he's currently the team manager, but hey, there's always next year! You can also find Joey playing shepherd to his flock of baby ducklings. True story.
Joey is currently trying to implement a 'Ducks in the Workplace' insurance policy.
