Scott Shine lives in southwest Colorado with his wife, two kids, and recently-adopted mutt. He enjoys running long distances through beautiful places and paddling the family's restored Mad River canoe on the region's lakes and rivers. His wife makes fun of him for his frequent impulse shoe purchases and affinity for Theodore Roosevelt. After getting his Master's degree in Community and Regional Planning from the University of Oregon, he and his wife rode a tandem bicycle 5,000 miles while raising funds to drill wells in Africa and South America. Scott hopes to do a similar expedition with the kids in the near future.
