Joy, freedom, and adventure

One of my favorite memories is from Li-Ming and Myke’s wedding. Kara and I were dancing, and the picture of it encompasses a feeling of joy, freedom, and adventure. All of these things make me think of Myke and some of the adventures we shared, like hiking up Pioneer Peak and going on an epic […]

Myke was a gorilla!

I’m Myke’s brother Alek and today would have been his 42nd birthday – it’s so sad that he is no longer with us. There are countless stories I could tell about him, but here’s a short one from almost exactly 14 years ago. Myke and his soon-to-be-wife Li-Ming had come out to Colorado in late […]

Bro Powder

Here are a few of my most memorable pictures with Myke including from the glory days of “operation bro powder”, an annual skiing and snowboarding trip with the brothers. The big smack talk before and after was almost as good as the skiing/boarding. I will mostly miss Myke’s intellect and companionship trying to untangle the […]

Myke will be always most fondly remembered by everyone who had an honor to know him. As many people wrote about him on Facebook, really one of a kind.  It has been a great honor for me to meet such a wonderful couple as Li-Ming and Myke.  Furthermore, it is so admirable how supportive Li-Ming […]
