Alex and Savana Kislia migrated to Summit County, CO in pursuit of the great outdoors and mountain living. Alex spends his workdays behind his computer box or flying off to distant, less desirable lands to provide consulting expertise. As a teacher, Savana combines her passion for children and art to educate the youth of America.
