Elise Fitzsimmons

Membership Director

Elise finds constant inspiration in the Rocky Mountains and wants to live in a community of informed, engaged, and passionate locals. Hailing from Chicago, Elise fell in love with Aspen instantly while studying at the University of Colorado, Boulder. After graduating with a degree in sociology in 2011, Elise drove over the pass for the last time as a tourist and was ready to put down roots, yearning for the illusive qualifier of “Aspen Local”.  Over the past four years in the valley Elise has developed a deep sense of connection with those in the Roaring Fork; most notably through helping open Meat & Cheese in Aspen. To give back to the community she begun the Friendship Tree project in the winter of 2014. She is an avid reader and audiophile who loves travel, international cuisine, deep space and (like every good Aspenite) all things outside.

Ways to Connect

This week on Audio Canvas we meet with the Haas Brothers. The twins make whimsical reflections of the world around them. They are spending their time at the ranch expanding their skills, discussing philosophy and building new relationships.


This week at Anderson Ranch we go into the studio of the Haas Brothers.  The twins who create whimsical gold mushrooms with beaded caps that soar eight feet into the air, furry horned day beds with bronze paws, hand thrown ceramic accretions, and brightly beaded fanciful creatures share the most important parts of the creative process.
