I Sell Fun For A Living
Name: Mike Brumbaugh
Time at Venture: 29 years (and counting)
Home Town: Chuluota, FL
Status: Married (25 years and counting)
Ski or Board: 2 planker wanker
Fat or Skinny Tires: Skinny all the way – spandex don’t lie
Why Venture: I often tell people that I would trade bank accounts with a lot of people but I wouldn’t trade lives with anyone. I sell fun for a living and get to work in a place where most people save all year to vacation for a week. I am blessed
Fun Fact: I proudly consider myself very mediocre at a variety of sports from skiing to rock climbing to road riding.
My Perfect Day: Get up super early, skin up arrowhead, ski down to Timbers Bachelor Gulch, work until about 2, drive to Eagle and ride up cottonwood and gypsum creek. 2,000 vertical on skis, make a little money, 35 miles and 3,000 vertical on asphalt and dirt. Then dinner with my bride – ain’t life grand.
