DENVER -- Denver resident Mike Keshian, 31, loves the outdoors.
He’s worked there: “I’ve been a commercial fisherman in Alaska for over six years and a ski bum in Crested Butte and Steamboat for 13 years.”
He’s definitely played there: “Skiing, do a little snowboarding. When I was living in Crested Butte mountain biking was huge.”
He found love at altitude, but not much in the city: “Moving to Denver it was clearly obvious that it was not an easy market."
That’s why Keshian created LuvByrd.com.
“It’s for singles who are into the outdoors and for a way for them to connect," Keshian said.
LuvByrd is free on a PC. You jump on and create a profile like Kelly Simmons did.
“I’d way rather like go hiking on a Sunday vs. sitting down and watching football at a bar,” she said.
The 28-year-old ski and snowboard rep was hoping to find a Rocky Mountain romance -- and she did, with Keshian.
“I met the girl of my dreams, I’ve been dating Kelly,” Keshian said.
Talk about unintended circumstances.
“He likes to do the same things I do,” Simmons said. “He doesn’t like football, either.”
So the lesson here? Keshian’s not only the president of LuvByrd.com, he’s also a client.
