It doesn’t get more creative than a film festival that features short films, filmmakers, artists, and musicians, all in one awesome event. In spring of 2019 I collaborated with fellow creatives to put together the first annual Horsetooth Int’l Film Festival (HIFFCO), and it was so much fun! We are now moving into planning for HIFFCO year two.


HIFFCO was founded to establish Northern Colorado as an international destination where progressive thought and action are celebrated through the art of filmmaking, and the art, music, and talent that make films possible. The mission of HIFFCO is to inspire and engender passionate artistic creations and positive change by providing an international platform to spread knowledge and creativity. HIFFCO is held annually in the fall and includes popular venues across Northern Colorado. 


As Communications Director, I have my hands in a little bit of everything! It’s fun and great to connect with other creatives as we build of community to help support the “creative spark” in others around the world.

Startup Artup week fort collins 2019, find the root of creative blocks and learn to break free


Did you head out to enjoy Fort Collins Start-Up/Art-Up Week in 2019? If so, you may have seen me on the schedule, giving a talk about how to Find the Root of Creative Blocks and Learn to Break Free. You can also listen to the podcast interview I did with Nick Armstrong before the big event to offer folks a little preview of my creative passions, and how I support other entrepreneurs and creatives along their path.  The surprise bonus?

You2.0 Noco Style Magazine


It was a treat to do an interview with Angeline Grenz and talk about simple, helpful ways to shift your mindset to create “You 2.0” in 2019. I shared tips to pinpoint unhealthy patterns and shift them into something more self supportive, and offered tools to turn confusion into clarity so you can thrive. Read the article at the orange highlighted link below the image, or check it out in NoCo Style Magazine.


In late 2018 I wrote an article for the Loveland Small Business Development Center about Understanding and Managing Sensitivities as a Small Business Owner , and it was featured in their quarterly newsletter. I believe the better we understand ourselves, the more empowered we are in our businesses and can create a creative and work process that supports what we need to feel supported and inspired.

Engel Jones, a podcaster and all around fantastic person is such a treat to know, and I’m grateful he’s part of my circle of creative connections.
