I help people to focus on the things that matter most: who we love, what we do, how, and why we live…because everything else is just stuff. As a professional organizer, social entrepreneur, and author of ClutterFree Revolution, my professional practice is focused in 5 areas:
- operational systems,
- time & task management,
- content creation, and
- professional networking.
I’m honored to have had my work featured in Inc., Aspen Magazine, Aspen Sojourner magazine, Modern Luxury, Interiors Colorado, Lifestyles magazine, and my own column (“Life.Simplified.”) featured twice-monthly in the two largest newspapers of the Aspen Valley.
My wife and I own a home with our daughter, on a quiet street in Downtown Carbondale, nominated by Outside magazine as “Best Town Ever” and listed in Men’s Journal as “50 Best Places to Live.” We think so, too.
My wife has a successful massage therapy practice. Life is simple. Our work is rewarding to us and meaningful to the people we serve. We lead with heart and integrity and our clients feel like family. We buy second-hand, local, and organic whenever we can. We grow vegetables in our garden, volunteer in our community, and actively look for opportunities to rediscover gratitude and bliss. We try to live intentionally and feel honored to call the Roaring Fork Valley our home.
People assume I’m a Life Coach, but that’s not my background. I hold a master’s degree focused in experiential education and curriculum development, so my approach is as an educator, a project facilitator, and a guide to fast, effective, long-lasting results.

My family and I understand that what we do with our stuff is just as important as how we invest our money. Together, we are committed to giving generously to the organizations we believe help make our community a better place for all of us.
Every year, a portion of our small business income goes to supporting local agencies and organizations that support students, families, the arts, and environmental preservation. In addition, we volunteer our time in support of local organizations through boards, committees and by donating silent auction gift certificates.
If you are interested in our donated services to benefit a local nonprofit organization of the Roaring Fork Valley, please let us know.
The ClutterFree Revolution is not just about helping people to simplify and get organized. Our bottom line is leaving this planet a little better than we found it. Together, we’re committed to human rights, fair trade, and environmental preservation. That’s why ClutterFree Revolution Academy has teamed up with 1% for the Planet, a world-renowned foundation matching philanthropic donors with 501(c)3 non-profit organizations focused on environmental sustainability. “Saving the world” is not just a subtitle on the book cover; it’s the heart and soul of the ClutterFree Revolution. Why? Because nothing else matters if we’re not doing everything possible to ensure peace and prosperity for our children. Join us! We’re not just tidying up, we’re getting organized for good!
TEACHERS are the real superstars of this country. That’s why I’m dedicated to supporting public school teachers with COMPLIMENTARY services every month throughout the school year. “2 for Teachers” is a 100% philanthropic scholarship program devoted to supporting teachers (across the country) with FREE organizational consulting. If you’re a public school teacher, let me share a few simple strategies guaranteed to help you simplify and get organized – in & out of your classroom!
