About Hlawaty, Stephen

Born in Brooklyn, N.Y., raised in Queens, N.Y., but mellowed in Colorado, Stephen Hlawaty has definitely found a home within the Centennial State's Rocky Mountains. His mellowing is a consequence of a certain peace of mind one finds in narrowing ones priorities. Loving his wife, Amanda, and sharing time together with their dog Moab in the mountains has left this one-time city slicker in a mellow mood.

Writing for a variety of local and national outdoor and technical publications, Stephen still finds time to refuel his soul by mountain biking, backcountry skiing, and backpacking in the surrounding mountains near their Livermore cabin. When not offering his blood, sweat, and tears to the outdoors, he does so on the mat while training in Aikido, the Japanese martial art of self-defense.
