Owner & President
Karen grew up in Greenville, SC and graduated from Virginia Tech with a B.S. in Materials Engineering. After a brief stint in ceramics R&D, she transitioned to Quality-related positions in several different industries. However, her primary (and most important) role was raising her two sons. Karen and Rob have visited all 50 states and enjoy road trips, as well as other types of travel. Karen also takes pleasure in pickleball, spending time outdoors in Colorado’s beautiful climate, reading, baking, and playing games or watching movies with her family.
Owner & COO
Rob grew up in Virginia, and graduated from Virginia Tech with a B.S. in Computer Engineering; he earned his M.B.A. from Colorado State in 2017. Rob’s early work experience crosses many verticals but the most interesting jobs have been baker, business owner, and technical team lead. He and Karen moved from the East coast to Colorado in 1999 and have raised their two sons here. Rob enjoys traveling in the US and abroad, watching and playing many sports, grilling and smoking, and spending time with his family. He is always looking for his next great memory.
Dan joined Smash My Trash as the Denver NE Territory Manager in February ’21 and has recently transitioned to GM. He hails from the Poconos of Pennsylvania, but moved here a few years ago to raise his son in Colorado. At 49, Dan enjoys all the great opportunities our great state has to offer. He engages in various activities on his own and with his son: baseball, soccer, bike riding, snowboarding, and playing with their dog. Dan feels that Smash My Trash offers him a great opportunity to be part of the community in a positive, helpful way that is satisfying at the end of the day.
Senior Driver / Operator
Jeff joined the Smash My Trash team in January ’22. He and his wife Becky moved to Colorado to find expertise with Becky’s disability and to help her aging parents. Jeff comes from a successful 30-year career in industrial design. He acquired his CDL to assist in the transport of large scale event installations. Now, when he’s not driving the Smash truck, Jeff uses many of those skills in a far different manner, including: writing a novel, creating art in paint and recycled/up-cycled material, working in other creative media, and playing with his “two thirds of a dog” Achilles (he is a spoiled tripod).
