Professional Life:

Money is a poor measuring stick for success but for most of us work is a necessity, the ideal for many of us is to get to work in areas that that we are passionate about.  Below is a list of things that I GET to do – some to pay the bills, some to fill the heart and thankfully many check both boxes.  You can also read my biography HERE.

Graphic Deign

Where art meets function and utility.  As a lifelong artist I work professionally as graphic designer and have completed hundreds of projects and enjoy working on personal projects for my own businesses as well as client projects.

Web Design

Coupling strong design and technical skills with competent project management my small and streamlined team offers website design and development services for small and large clients alike.  Portfolio and references available upon request.

Marketing

Content is important but it is often times in how we convey it that we attain success. All successful brands start with a vision and I am passionate about helping my clients develop their vision so they can share their compelling story.

Rocksteady Running

Rocksteady Running produces trail and ultra distance running races in Minnesota including; the Zumbro Endurance Run, Superior Spring Trail Race, Endless Summer Trail Run Series, Afton Trail Run and Superior Fall Trail Race.

Event Management

As lifelong runner with expertise in project management – event management and race directing was a natural fit.  Starting as a participant and working intensively as a volunteer I found one of my true callings in race directing and event management.

Race Timing

Evolving from event management Rocksteady Timing is a certified Chronotrack RFID Chip Timing partner.  We offer RFID chip timing services to other events utilizing the most technologically advanced platform in the industry.

Apparel

We don’t realize all of our dreams at once – one of mine is to own and operate a full fledged apparel brand.  Coupling my art and graphic design backround – via Rocksteady Running we produce RSR and event specific clothing both for giveaways and retail.

Speaking

Sharing experience, strength and hope – story telling and sharing tales of adventure, there are fewer things more rewarding.  I am available for presentations and speaking engagements focusing on a range personal and professional topics.

Ecology

And here is the oddball but you never know where your passions will take you.  Working as a field technician for an ecological restoration firm allows me to put my skills as a chainsaw operator, surveyor, GPS technician and more to use.

Volunteerism

I am fortunate to be able to work in areas that I am passionate about but am equally as fortunate to volunteer for a number of great organizations that allow me to put my skills to use in order to benefit others.  I strive to make sure that a significant portion of all of the work that I do is on a volunteer basis – these volunteer commitments are frequently the most meaningful and memorable things I engage in.
