Born and raised in California, David had the desire to live in Colorado since the 3rd Grade.  When an employment opportunity presented itself, he quickly jumped on the chance, threw some clothes and a microwave in trunk of the car and headed to Colorado with his lovely wife Sonya.  He loves the scenery, people and culture that Colorado has to offer.  His zeal for organizing and applying his computer skills are seen in the quality and creativeness he puts into the HRHS Web Site.  He has over 30 years of experience in the IT field and has served on several executive boards in California before moving to the Centennial State. He continues to run his people-first consulting services at Far West Computer Consulting.  Since his arrival in the area he has also been keeping busy with his infatuation for the community’s rich histories by serving on the board of HRHS.

A Denver Native, Nancy has lived and worked in and around Highlands Ranch since 2000.  Being a REALTOR and introducing clients to the area, the topic of local history frequently was discussed.  As part of her HR discovery quest, the Mansion was visited, and an instant love affair resulted!   Becoming involved with the Mansion as a Docent and the Historical Society has been pure pleasure ever since!  In addition to working with real estate clients and the Historical Society, Nancy also has been on the Board of Directors of the HRHS and her HOA,  volunteers in a variety of community settings, and enjoys free time playing with her kitties and traveling the world with family and friends.

David moved with his family to a location just north of Highlands Ranch in 1977.  He watched our neighborhood grow from fields to the large suburb it is today.  David's childhood memories of Highlands Ranch include picking up cans along Daniel's Park Road, picking wild asparagus along the Highline Canal and learning to drive on the streets before the homes came in.  David graduated from Cherry Creek High School, received a bachelor’s degree from University of Colorado - Boulder and graduate degrees from the University of Denver.  David now works as the Director of Program Management for MeteoStar, A Division of Sutron Corporation.  David has had the opportunity to travel all over the US and Canada as a kid along with international travel as an adult and has never found a place he likes more than Colorado.  David has always liked history and currently also volunteers as a Highlands Ranch Mansion docent and is appointed to the Douglas County Historical Preservation Board until 2017.  David is happy to be living and raising his family in Highlands Ranch.

Vice President

Paul, after moving to Colorado in 1990 and researching where he wanted to live, settled in unincorporated Douglas County in 1993.  Having concerns relating to land use, the quality of development along the C-470 corridor, and a desire for greater input over development decisions affecting the area’s future, he joined with other like-minded residents in 1994.  From that involvement, he was elected Vice Chairman of the Charter Commission, and then Chairman of the Election Commission for the successful incorporation of the City of Lone Tree in 1995.  After moving to Highlands Ranch in 1996, Paul became one of the Founding Fathers of the Highlands Ranch Chamber of Commerce, and served as a Board Member.   Until business travel caused a conflict, he was a dedicated member of the Metro Districts Park and Recreation Board as well.  Paul has also been Santa Claus for children visiting the HR Mansion at Christmas time, and is a current Volunteer Docent for Mansion Tours.  His spouse and grown children, along with their families, have greatly enjoyed the area, especially Highlands Ranch.

I was born in Denver and moved to Lakewood during my elementary years. My husband Paul and I lived in Green Mountain for 27 years where we raised our family of 2 boys. Starting in 2000 we lived in our motorhome for 6 years, and at the time started our adventure of working at Walt Disney World in Florida. We worked there seasonally for 11 years and enjoyed it very much. We bought our home in Highlands Ranch in 2006 and love living here. I am honored and thoroughly enjoy being a docent at the Highlands Ranch Mansion. I am definitely a Colorado girl! We found no place during our travels that compares to living in Colorado.

I am an aspiring Architect. Graduated with a Master’s in Architecture and a Historic Preservation Certificate from University of Texas at San Antonio. Moved from Austin, Texas and currently living in Highlands Ranch, Colorado. I am originally from India. Did my Bachelors in Electronics and instrumentation, but worked in the IT industry for 2.5 years. Realized its not what I wanted to do. Went to the middle east and started working in a construction company. Started loving what I was doing, creation of buildings, working with different contractors, managing sites. The joy of seeing a completed building that I worked on cannot be put into words. I then moved to the states to pursue my Masters in Architecture. Im blessed with an understanding wife - Susan, son - Nethaniel and Dog - Coco. 

Professionally I’m on the search for a job that will make use of my varied experience and credentials.
