What’s a day of Todd Burdette like

Wake up and get going. Get the kid going and fed off to school. Dylan likes to "arm the bomb" (set the alarm) so we run off together – that’s kinda fun. Sometimes to work for meetings, sometimes I work from home, which is nice. I’m in software. I go running at lunch or go to the gym. I do a lot of running. Dinner and playing with Dylan and homework and chores. I live an exciting life, huh?

What’s your greatest attribute?

Probably that I'm a lover of life and people.

Favorite thing about living in COLORADO?

The natural beauty. The seasons are awesome. It's so pretty there. I can’t tell you how many times I’m driving and I say it’s a beautiful day, evening, it's constant. It doesn’t matter what time of year it is. I always think, can you believe we live here? Dylan loves the winter – he was born in Feb so I think it's kind of attached to him. We hide from thunderstorms together.

Funniest father moment?

When the hair lady butchered Dylan’s hair – I told him "you are never going back to her" – we walk in next time and he looks back at me and yells in front her, “that’s the woman you said can never cut my hair again!” I was mortified but he was right.

one type of food and drink for the rest of your life. Go!

This one requires some thought. An IPA and tacos.

What’s something most people don’t know about you?

That I’m an Eagle Scout.

What’s your signature style?

Laid back. Ball cap, t-shirt, shorts, flip flops.

Funniest moment with me that you can remember?

Ants! Probably your speech at Lindsay’s wedding. I was in tears. It was so you. I loved it for that reason. And it was funny.

First bucket list item that comes to mind?

A tropical vacation.

LIFE MOTTO:

Don’t worry, be happy.
