Telluride – Stewart’s love for Telluride goes back to his childhood. For nearly 15 summers, his family left the heat of Texas for the freshness and beauty of the San Juan Mountains.

Each summer he and his family would drive the jeep over Black Bear pass and enjoy ice cream floats at the Old Drug Store on Main Street, the very building he makes his office today.
