I grew up in Northern Michigan and now live in Manhattan Beach, California, after a four year stint in NYC. I have been involved in numerous special events and cause driven programs, campaigns and promotions for...several years. :-)
I am a partner in BLU MOON Group, a cause marketing and communications firm. The main areas we work in are traffic safety, environment, music/the arts and health.
I LOVE my work (challenges and triumphs)and truly feel that I haven't ever 'had a job'. I love to travel, hiking, live music and enjoy spending time with family and friends. When not at a work event, I relish simple days at the beach or reading a good book, while lounging in my backyard.
"Nothing in the world can take the place of PERSISTENCE:
Talent will not- nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent.
Genius will not- unrewarded genius is almost a proverb.
Education will not- the world is full of educated derelicts.
PERSISTENCE and DETERMINATION alone are omnipotent.
The slogan 'press on' has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race."
~ CALVIN COOLIDGE (1812-1933), 30th President of the USA.
"Stay Hungry. Stay Foolish."
~ Steve Jobs
