Dean, the PR Dude
I’m a transplanted Wisconsinite who still can’t believe how lucky he is that it doesn’t snow in San Francisco. Basketball is my sport—to play and to watch. I also like cycling and playing tennis when my shoulder permits. Golf even sneaks its way in occasionally. None of my sports are played particularly well in a snowstorm!
The reality is that most of my free time revolves around my kids, now 13 and 10. From soccer games to ballet lessons, theatre performances and tennis classes, there’s a lot of driving to be done. Lucky my wife and I have a Prius as a mileage-friendly option.
Speaking of the Prius, eco-issues are another passion for me—and I give Clif Bar the credit for that. Our company focus is all about sustainability, and some special “green” colleagues have given me a whole new view of the world that I fully embrace.
I’m one of the oldies here, having been at Clif Bar since the last century (well, it was 1999). I arrived just before LUNA was born (she sure has grown up nicely!).
In my dreams, I learn how to really play that guitar in my closet, write successful screenplays and author a wildly popular blog about the environment.
