About

A very brief overview of my life.

  • 2004

    Moved to Chicago

    I grew up outside St. Louis in a middle-sized middle-class town called Alton, IL. After earning an Associates Degree in Radio Broadcasting, I figured it was time to follow the dream and moved to Chicago where I earned a Bacherlor's in Marketing at Columbia College. While in Chicago I also learned to brew beer, rode my bike through the city a bunch, had a few jobs and married the love of my life.

  • June 2013

    An Athlete is Born

    I spent a bunch of years being--well--pretty fat and lazy. After several months of calorie-counting, running and biking, I participated in my first two races (both Warrior Dash events) on back-to-back weekends. I genuinely believed running two roughly-5k distance races in successive weeks might kill me. I was wrong and my real fitness journey began.

  • March 2015

    Moved to Detroit

    Following an incredible opportunity for my even more incredible wife, we packed our bags and left behind Chicago. Though my heart is still there in many ways, Detroit has been an incredibly welcoming home to us. We have been overwhelmed with the possiblities and optimism here and find ourselves feeling more at home with each passing day.

  • January 2016

    LDAY All Day

    2016 has been a rough year for a lot of reasons on the macro-level, but zooming in to the life of the Yepsen household will find another story altogether. On January 28, my beautiful wife gave birth to our magnificent son, Luke David Albert Yepsen. In October, I ran my first marathon (full disclosure: it was awful) and in November, the Chicago Cubs won the World Series! So maybe 2016 isn't as bad as they say.
