  1. To promote and educate the public about family oriented hobbies throughout the Rocky Mountain Region and beyond by providing information and inspiration to new and existing hobbyists
  2. To provide a cost-effective medium for hobby manufacturers to reach retailers and consumers via a single coordinated event.

Executive Director

An avid model railroad enthusiast himself, Jim saw a need for introducing the next generation to hands-on hobbies. Beyond inspiring new hobbyists, Jim wants to provide manufacturers a cost-effective solution to reach new retailers and the opportunity to meet and converse directly with consumers. Thus, the ultimate Hobby Experience was born.

Beyond the Hobby-Expo, Jim facilitates hobby swaps year-round in the Denver Metro area. More info on these swaps can be found on our Facebook page.
