CEO and OWNER
Thaddeus is the CEO and owner of Bonsai Design, a world-class aerial adventure firm based in Grand Junction, CO.

Thaddeus’s big vision and endless optimism has facilitated Bonsai’s exponential growth over the last twelve years, helping to position Bonsai as an industry leader in sustainable outdoor aerial adventure. Thaddeus spends his time in the office and field ensuring that Bonsai’s clients can accomplish their dream of a custom course that showcases their unique property. The greatest gift Thaddeus brings to Bonsai is his willingness to think outside the box and say yes to the impossible- and then figure out how to make it happen.
