About Sooz

The nickname “Sooz” was given to me by a friend in 1997. I’ve been online since 1993 and made a few attempts to put a personal website together but nothing really stuck until came along in 2001.

I grew up in Nebraska and moved to Boston May 1994. If you ever need to pack your life in three pieces of luggage and need advice on how to do it, let me know! I wanted to live in New England since about the age of 12 though I never actually visited until I was 20 during a spring break trip with a college pal.

I’ve been hosting social events and gatherings in the Boston area since around 1997 and I also provide event marketing services to clients. If you’ve got a business or personal event coming up, perhaps I can help! I send out an email newsletter every few weeks listing interesting events and happenings in the Boston area and invites to gatherings I’m hosting. Once or twice a year since 1998 I’ve hosted a sushi dinner party. Photos from past gatherings are in the photo album. Sometime soon I’ll be setting up a website for my event marketing services at
