I was so excited to be back in Denver opening for Ellen DeGeneres. As here long time audience warm-up act, it was amazing to get the phone call to work on her final tour. I hadn’t seen Ellen in two years because we relocated from Los Angeles to Tennessee, and now I’m a full-time fundraiser and charity auctioneer.

My worlds collided on stage in Denver at the Paramount Theater opening for Ellen, as I was able to show off my auctioneering skills which I now use at non-profit fundraisers every weekend around the country. This was theater #6 of twenty on the nationwide tour, which is why I’m holding up six fingers in the photo below.

The show was fantastic, and up next we are heading to Austin, San Francisco, Seattle, Boston, DC, Philadelphia, New York, Toronto, Nashville, Charlotte, Chicago, Durham, and Minneapolis!
