I love where I live, and I also love what I do. I'm lucky to be able to work in a profession in which I get to build relationships; one that has me meeting new people each and every day and helping them to build new lives in my beloved city. I'm lucky enough to work in a profession in which I can marry cutting-edge technologies and marketing techniques to good, old-fashioned, nose-to-the-grindstone work. I am lucky enough to work in a profession that allows me to work as an advocate for my clients; to use every tool at my disposal to get a job done well for them, and with as little stress and expense as possible.
I love my city. I love my job. One inspires my excellence for the other.
Fresno? I say FresYES
As you know, Chris Stapleton was supposed to perform in Fresno tonight but had to back out for reasons unknown. But you already hired that babysitter, and it’s a shame to waste a perfectly good night out, especially when it’s an Art Hop night.
So here are 5 things you can do tonight instead of seeing Chris Stapleton.
1. Moonage Daydream by Meaghan McCready, a Tribute to David Bowie
Fresno Dance Collective presents an original aerial art show honoring music legend David Bowie. Set to a soundtrack of six classic Bowie songs, “Moonage Daydream” combines aerial, dance, and acrobatic partnering to tell the story of a young Martian girl’s journey to Earth. 5-10 p.m. at the Pacific Southwest Building.

2. Fresno Swing Dance at ArtHop
