About and Bio

Howdy and Aloha,

Thanks for taking a look! (Note: Canadian users please visit my “Aboot” page, eh?)

I’m a little off – but in a good way. The lens through which I view life may be slightly cracked and warped, but it sure is funny, and I have a passion for laughter, life, community, connections and philanthropy and it shows in my career, words and yes, antics. In our hectic personal lives and business schedules taking a moment to stop and reflect on life’s gifts to give thanks and share a laugh with those around us is something we sometimes fail to prioritize..and so I urge you to gather, connect celebrate and laugh – and, uh, hire me to make it a “humorous” event. I have a decade of event planning experience from grand galas to intimate parties and have seen it all and one thing stands out: you get what you pay for! Trusting a volunteer to emcee or handle your music is flirting with disaster. Have me on the mic and your event will go from “fine” to “memorable.” Need more convincing?

I love being a part of the social fabric of the community I live in (Gunnison, CO) and I’ve been called the “unofficial mayor of Gunnison.” I love lending my skills and experience to my community in diverse ways through service to non-profits, the needy and to the business community through the newly formed ICELab at Western State Colorado University as a Certified Business Consultant.  I’m honored to be part of a community of caring, passionate, driven and yet funky and people!

When I’m not working I’m volunteering, DJ’ing for our local public radio station KBUT or outdoors on [frozen] water Nordic skiing with my dogs “Pancho” and “Sherlock Homeslice”, snowboarding [poorly], or playing hockey [poorly] and when the water melts I’ll be rafting [flipping] and fishing [it’s not called catching for a reason], on my motorcycle, hiking or mountain biking.  I don’t take my life too seriously but I do take humor very seriously – laughter is my passion. I am!

Smile! Laugh! Grin!
