Web Development Project Manager
Eliot is originally from Michigan where he attended Michigan State University and received his BA in Anthropology. He has made the Southwest his home starting with Crested Butte, CO in 1994 and then moved to Flagstaff, Arizona where he received his Masters in Applied Anthropology from Northern Arizona University in 1998. He moved back to Colorado in 1999 and lived in Black Hawk, CO for the past 17 years. He moved to the Roaring Fork Valley in November 2017 to start a new chapter of his life with his loyal canine companion, Gypsy, and pursue his professional passion of web technologies and project management via working at Blizzard.
Eliot is a well-rounded web technologist who has worked in various roles from system administrator to web developer to most recently technical project manager since 1996. His passions lie with managing web projects through their full life cycle from inception to go live focusing on user-centric design and clear communication amongst various parties including clients and internal teams.
When Eliot is not evaluating project requirements, burnout charts, or communicating with clients and team members, he can be found on ski slopes, running up and down steep mountain peaks, or biking on trails. He is an all-around outdoor enthusiast who loves competing in foot races particularly ultra events that are longer than 26.2 miles. For example, one of his recent accomplishments was finishing the Leadville Trail 100 Run in 2017. He has plans to train and compete in other 100 Mile Endurance Runs, including Western States, High Lonesome, Run Rabbit Run, Hard Rock, and Ouray.
