Greg Aden

30 years in hospitality including five years of financial services experience. In 2013 I resigned from IHG to start my own leadership firm. The root reason was knowing I was meant to stand for something more important the franchise development. Although I was making a great living, I was three years into a great marriage and we adopted one son and created another all in 15 months. Read more>>

Sarah Perez

Sarah Perez (Vocals) Kelsey Gant (Bassist) and Andrew Elofson (Guitarist) started suitable Miss in February 2019. Initially, Andrew was the drummer of the group, and we auditioned different guitarists around Denver. We never really found any that we connected with, so we decided to make Andrew the guitarist and audition drummers. We then auditioned Tom Hanson, who I just moved To Colorado from Fargo, North Dakota. Read more>>

The Keeps

Four of us came from different bands as we were all searching for a new sound. Andy Tran and Charlie Nicholson found Quinn Jones and Christian Olson from a local school and asked them to audition for this new band. They had such a presence with their long hair and love for funk music. Their style helped us to create a rock sound but with some pop songs to appeal with audiences. Read more>>

Jen Kramer started dancing and performing ballet at a young age but by the time she graduated high school, it was no longer something she was passionate about.

Elizabeth Fowler

I grew up in Atlanta, GA, but always knew I belonged out west. I discovered I had an artistic talent in high school, thanks to my high school art teacher. I ended up in AP art, which I loved. I then started looking into various careers you can do as an artist and found graphic design. I ended up going to school to study art with a concentration in graphic design at Miami University in Ohio.

Danielle Worthington

I fell in love with photography at the young (and angsty) age of 15, at a time when I was desperately searching for ways to express myself. In the quiet and stillness of the darkroom, I was forever changed. And here I am, almost 20 years later, still captivated by the power and the art of helping humans see themselves through the art of portraiture. Read more>>

Vanessa Louis

Growing up, my mom was always a huge proponent of making a big deal out of any celebration (and she truly found ANY reason to celebrate), so that piece has always come very naturally for me. But it was during a conversation with a friend who was panicked about having forgotten her wedding anniversary and not sure what to do or get to celebrate, that the light came on for me. Read more>>

Tyler Stellern

I met a Chinese herbalist while starting an organic educational garden at the soap factory I worked in during college. He honored me by introducing me to his hives in a hidden mountain sanctuary filled with hillsides of herbs. It was love at first sight. The harmony of the honey bees’ song was like nothing else. It was a beautiful siren’s song. I was immediately under their spell, ready to leap into the sea of the unknown for their love. Read more>>
