Q :: What do you like doing in your free time?
A :: Being outside — skiing, hiking, drinking beer on a patio….
Q :: Where are you from? What brought you to Colorado?
A :: I’m from Colorado! Greeley to be exact. Ever been? We have the world’s largest 4th of July rodeo (and some other memorable attributes…). I left for a stint for college and boomeranged right back home for family, friends, and our incredible CO lifestyle.
Q :: What got you into PR?
A :: I’m one of the few folks out there who are actually using their college degree; I majored in PR and minored in advertising. I’ve stuck with it for so many reasons including but not limited to: I love storytelling, I get to meet incredible people who are truly making a difference in their communities, and once in a while I get paid to drink wine. So that’s nice.
Q :: What do you like most about what you do?
A :: Besides the wine? I get to help people live out their dreams! Whether it’s an entrepreneur who needs a little help promoting his business, or a family who has been dreaming about and saving for a vacation, or an up-and-coming artist who reads their name in the headlines, by and large what I do makes people smile. It’s nice to be a smile-spreader.
