Kelby Groff | Moab, Spring 2020
Hello, my name is Kelby and I am super stoked to be building a naturally built eco home with Community Rebuilds. I feel very lucky to have been given the opportunity to build on land that I actually grew up on. I was born in Moab and raised next door to the build site where my parents still live. I come from many generations of Moab people, and my family opened the first bicycle shop here " Rim Cyclery “, which helped bring the town out of an economic slump in the 80's. My father and his brother are in the Mountain Bike Hall of Fame because of this. I went to the University of Utah and received a Bachelor’s of Science degree with an emphasis on Ecology. I have been running Rim Cyclery now for long enough that I sometimes lose track of how long it’s been. I have a passion for traveling and seeing concerts but I always LOVE coming HOME to MOAB and I always will!
Resford Rouzer | Moab, Spring 2020
Born and raised in Moab, Resford is really excited to build his own sustainable home in the community he grew up in. For the last four and a half years he has worked for the nonprofit Canyonlands Field Institute and is currently their Marketing & Communications Director. He also serves as a board member for CPRG (Colorado Plateau River Guides) and KZMU. He cares deeply about our community and wrote his master’s thesis on public land use and oral histories of the Colorado Plateau with photo documentation. When he isn’t doing nonprofit stuff you can find him out on the river rafting or exploring the desert.

We have both lived in Moab for more than 15 years and we both have worked in the mountain bike industry for over a decade plus.

We love living in Moab and are very excited to be building our forever home with Community Rebuilds and everyone that is part of the program!
Bryan Beachum | Moab, Fall 2019
Born and raised in a small town in Michigan right near the lake shore. I traded the humidity, lakes and rivers for the arid climate and red rocks of Moab in 2012 without looking back.
I stumbled through Moab after finishing the 2011 season teaching snow boarding in Park City. Since then, the discovery seems to always continue, whether it’s hidden gems of areas surrounding, new friends or of myself which I find thrives in this place.
Orion is my canine companion as of December just this past year. Together we go just about everywhere together. Whether it’s work or play. We spend our time soaking in the beautiful surroundings of the delicate landscapes, hiking, flying and constantly meeting new people. Thank you Moab and Community Rebuilds for this incredible opportunity!
Didar and Anthony | Moab, Fall 2019
Didar and Anthony met in Moab and married in Istanbul, 2015. They decided to live in the city they met which is Anthony’s home town. Didar is an engineering intern at City of Moab. She finds herself lucky to work for the city she loves. Anthony started doing massage in 2013 and owns High Desert Massage. They have been hoping to build a home since visiting one of the open houses held by Community Rebuild. They love to go out hiking to get their dogs Tipsy and Coco tired. So the pups sleep good at night.
