…Apologies. I’m not a fan of this photo either.

But Because I harbor the tech-acumen of a
Remote indigenous new guinea tribesman i can’t change it.

frustrating, actually.

I’m to computers as captain Crunch is to maritime history.
And yes, I digress…Here’s my tale:

I’m a stand-up comedian with an outdoor bent. I like to ski and camp and get chased by bears and then joke about it.
Perfect for any corporate event or outdoor industry gathering.

Upon hearing this people often ask,
“So you like the outdoors, huh?”

I, being a comedian, usually reply with something witty like, “I do.”

This then prompts people to say something like, “Cool.” Or, “I like to camp too.”

Showing off my comedic improv skills I’ll answer,
“Yeah, the outdoors are awesome.”

Obviously impressed with my comedic banter people will then ask
“What makes you qualified to tell jokes about the great outdoors?”

And I’ll hand them this:

Those who are interested then say something like,
“Hmm, good to know.”

But those who are really interested ask,
“Is it just comedy or an actual presentation?”

And I then reply,
“It depends on your needs. I can provide a clean comedy stand-up act or combine it with a humorous outdoor presentation that employs PowerPoint and that stresses the importance of incorporating the outdoors into our lives through outdoor recreation which in turn heightens awareness to the importance of protecting open spaces.”

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