About Rich Karlis
I kicked for the Denver Broncos and Minnesota Vikings in the 1980's. After a long corporate career managing CenturyLink's sponsorship portfolio I've decided for my third career to turn my love of wood into creating a unique collection of wood products. Growing up in my father's business I fell in love with wood while sanding large gym floors. Nothing is more beautiful than a newly sanded gym floor.

I believe strongly that we must invest in our communities. My heart lies in support of agencies such as the National Sports Center for the Disabled. As a young player with the Broncos in the mid 1980's we skied in their annual event at Winter Park. Today I serve on their board of directors. A portion of each sale will go to National Sports Center for the Disabled and these other agencies that are doing important work in our community.
I've had a strong commitment to my community since I was a young player in the NFL. My heart lies in support of agencies such as Family Tree Inc. I became involved with Family Tree in 1984 while I was playing for the Broncos. I started a fundraising awareness program called Points for People along with a dedicated volunteer group. We raised over a $1M dollars during that period of time raising awareness around domestic violence. A portion of each sale will go to support Family Tree and the other agencies listed that are doing important work in our community.
