“We would recommend Jeff for any type of show. He was awesome!”

“Jeff’s presentation at our two employee orientations
was entertaining and enlightening. Great Job!”


“Best closing speaker ever!”

I’m a stand-up comedian/speaker with an outdoor bent. I like to ski and backpack and neighbor with wildlife and then talk about it. Imagine a transgendered Jane Goodall with a sense of humor.

(Visual examples can be found on my Wildlife page.)

I’m lucky. This has allowed me to work with some shockingly talented people (Martin Short, Brian Regan, John Oliver…) and perform on some high-five-cool stages (Red Rocks, the Vegas Strip…)


And because I perform clean comedy, in addition to the clubs, I also work as a corporate comedian & motivational speaker with an outdoor angle.

Upon hearing this it sometimes prompts people to share, “I like spending time outdoors too.”

Being a comedian I’ll respond with something amazingly witty like, “Good for you.”

Impressed with this quick-witted reply people often follow with
“Can you tell me more about your credentials?”

And I hand them this:


  • Outdoor Ambassador for Mountain Khakis
  • World Record Holder in the 17-yard dash
  • First person to ever attempt to scale Everest starting from Denver, Colorado
  • Number of times I treed a bear and her cub – 1
  • Number of times charged by a bear protecting her cub – 1
  • Number of times I self-nominated myself for a Darwin Award after getting charged by a bear protecting her cub – 1


  • National touring club & corporate comedian for 18 years
  • Based out of Denver’s world-famous Comedy Works
  • Comedians I performed with: Martin Short, Brian Regan, John Oliver, Lewis Black…
  • Cool venues I performed at: Las Vegas Riviera, Beaver Creek’s Vilar Center, Great American Comedy Festival.
  • Coolest venue I performed at: Red Rocks Amphitheatre
  • Named by the Mother Nature Network as one of the nation’s top environmental comedians (even though my act is outdoor-recreation based)
  • Humor articles published in more than 40 publications including ESPN’s Active.com, Cabin Life, and the Explorer Club’s Explorers Journal.

Those who are interested in maybe hiring me for a corporate event then say something like,
“Hmm, good to know.”

But those who are really interested ask,
“Do you perform a regular comedy act or deliver a motivational presentation?”

And I reply,
“It depends on your needs. I can provide a clean comedy stand-up act. Or a motivational speech that meshes my 19 years as stand-up comedian with my outdoor experiences to forge a compelling multi-media presentation that encourages unplugging from our screens (think screen detox), getting outside and pursuing exclamation point moments. Imagine, if you will, an adult version of Dead Poet’s Society on Red Bull with a healthy dose of National Geographic. Both informational and motivational it’s perfect for schools, businesses, and organizations.”

Not used to such verbose answers I’m then winded. And rather than talking some more I hand them the following contact info:
