#FBWDEN Co-Lead Organizer & Founder, Automate Business Growth

I’ve been a nomad, activist, entrepreneur, farmer, culture hacker, and freelance developer. I’ve quietly supported the explosive growth of social movement, relief efforts, radical K-12 education upgrades, and paradigm shifting ideas. I’m at home with digital technology but find my joy in facilitating cultural technology that helps groups work together in more effective healthy ways.

#FBWDEN Co-Lead Organizer & Founder Do Better Consulting

Let’s face it: you probably didn’t get into nonprofit work because you are good at preparing for audits. You’re trying to save the world. That’s laudable, but in order to operate effectively – as an individual and as an organization – you need to have solid systems in place.  

Where It’s At

#FBWDEN will be hosted in locations across the City of Denver, CO. 

Denver brings a breath of fresh mountain air to FREELANCE BUSINESS WEEK as the first western city  to host a #FBW event. 


Thanks to our sponsors for making this event affordable for our local freelance business owners
