Cory Pesaturo
Guest Occupation: Accordion player
Guest Biography:


Cory Pesaturo (“C Pez”) is on the forefront of the accordion world, pushing the boundaries on multiple fronts of what is possible with the accordion. The only person to ever win the trio of World Championships on Acoustic, Digital & Jazz Accordion, and the only accordion graduate of the prestigious New England Conservatory of Music in Boston, MA. In 2017, Pesaturo became a Guinness World Record Holder, as RedBull® flew him to Austria to break the Marathon Accordion Record, in which Cory played for over 32 hours. Cory’s main contribution is his visionary thinking of how the accordion should be used, played, taught, and presented in modern music. He has given 2 TED Talk’s and 2 Google Talk’s about this, which are currently the only TED or Google talks in the world about the accordion. Pesaturo is also developing his own electric accordion, and already has made the first ever skinned accordion which includes a symmetric lighting system attached to the keys.  

Pesaturo’s extensive resumé includes appearances at the White House for President and Mrs. Clinton on 4 different occasions, starting at age 12, and 8 other appearances for the Clintons since 2000, along with 14 letters from the first family. On one of those occasions, he became the youngest person to ever perform at a State Dinner, performing with the Marine Strolling Strings for the President of Hungary. Some TV appearances include the Late Show with David Letterman, performing with Johnny Depp, and nationally televised programs in New Zealand, Canada, Italy, Tunisia, France, and Finland. On an NYC broadcast, CNBC/FOX host Maria Bartiromo once said “No one is currently doing more for the Accordion than Cory”. He has judged accordion competitions in the US, Canada, and Europe, in addition to other music competitions, and currently gives masterclasses at various universities throughout the US and Europe on Accordion and Improvisation.  

For his Classical side which is lesser known, a win in a concerto competition at 16 years old gave Pesaturo the rare opportunity to perform with the Brockton Symphony Orchestra as a featured soloist, where he became the youngest accordionist to ever solo with a symphony orchestra in the US back in 2003. Concerning his Jazz side, Cory recorded two CD’s with saxophone legend George Garzone and his known band “The Fringe” at age 19, and has become friends with Jazz and Music Legends Quincy Jones and Wynton Marsalis. His performances at all 3 of his World Championships were played on accordions that were not his, and were generally 90% improvised; both aspects are unheard of in the accordion world.  

The instruments most famous legend in the US, Dick Contino, said when Cory was only 15, “Of all the accordionists I’ve seen over the years, Cory is the one to pass the torch to, the only one who has all the tools to bring the accordion back to its former glory.” Guido Deiro’s son, the “Father of Piano Accordion”, has stated “I’ve worried greatly about the future of the accordion since my father died, but not anymore since seeing and hearing Cory.”  

Pesaturo is also heavily involved and respected with the weather and motor sports worlds as well. He composed the Official list of records set by the record-breaking 2005 Atlantic hurricane season and also wrote the lists for the 2007 and 2008 Seasons as well. Moreover, he has put out reports on Winter Seasons for the US which have been featured on Accuweather.com, HurricaneCirty.com, and others. Cory is known for his FreeSledding work, including his own sledding mountain called “CN Mountain”. He has written sports blogs for sites like Bleacher Report, and has collaborated with members of the Red Sox and the Drop Kick Murphy’s on the “Fenway 100″ album released in 2012. His music has been played on Formula 1 broadcasts on NB

Sparrow Heatley
Guest Occupation: Event Organizer, massage therapist and yoga instructor who works with top athletes and people fighting cancer
Guest Biography:


Sparrow Heatley is one of two founders of the nonprofit organization From The Heart Tribe. Sparrow has been organizing events and bringing people together to help the environment in Los Angeles for over 11 years.

In 2009, Sparrow helped organize, along with Sean Jennings and Tim Morris, one of the greatest community events in West Los Angeles—“100 Gardens for Gratitude” where over 800 volunteers installed 100 edible gardens in one weekend across Los Angeles at homeless shelters and boys & girls clubs.  This team-building event transformed lawns into drought-tolerant native species or edible landscapes that improved both the environment and water supply.

In 2010, Sparrow helped Topanga Canyon Earth Day Festival creator Stephanie Lallouz organize an annual weekend event featuring live music and vegan food, and highlighted environmental conservation, community, and healing for over 10 thousand attendees. Sparrow continued to help organize this festival until its finale year in 2013. 

Beach cleanups started in 2011 when Sparrow lived in The Bahamas. She soon realized that Paradise Island wasn’t a paradise after all; its beaches around the tourist centers were covered in plastic trash.  To save life in the ocean and restore beauty to its beaches, Sparrow organized her first “Pick Up for Paradise” beach cleanup ridding the pink sands of Nassau from plastic straws and cigarette butts. After leaving the Bahamas for Los Angeles, she continued the effort and carried on the “paradise” name in hopes that people would consider their world a paradise even if it wasn’t an island.  

In 2019, From The Heart Tribe (FTHT) was officially designated as a 501c3. FTHT became the perfect platform to support and inspire leaders to organize environmental, community, or animal welfare events. 

As an ocean advocate, Sparrow organizes scientific data collection through her beach cleanups in order to advance environmental legislation in California, which contributed to the banning of plastic bags and plastic straws.  As a public speaker, she raises awareness about current environmental issues affecting Los Angeles as she did for Proposition 67 in 2016 and the “Clean Water Act” Measure W in 2018.

Sparrow’s passion and strength is helping people understand that some lifestyle choices are destroying the oceans. She strives to create solutions for our planet through her environmental events. To that extent, she goes beyond the ocean and teams up with organizations like TreePeople (a California 501c3 for mountain and park restoration) encouraging volunteers to take action.

Outside her environmental work, Sparrow is a massage therapist and yoga instructor who works with top athletes and people fighting cancer.  She holds degrees in business and management, and studied permaculture design.  Sparrow is continuing her education for green initiatives and renewable energy. During her spare time she enjoys hiking, paddle boarding, snowboarding, and pottery.

Phil and Pam Lawson
Guest Occupation: Authors and Founders of Spherit
Guest Biography:


About Being Spherical

Being Spherical; Reshaping Our Lives and Our World for the 21st Century, is “an attractively bound and illustrated modern philosophical treatise,” according to the editorial reviewer, Dr. John Maling, PhD., with “practical tools” for thoughtful individuals who are “concerned with our world, and its long-term direction and our long-term survival as a civilization and race.”  

Authors Phil Lawson and Rob Lindstrom more simply defined it as “a guided tour of an emerging worldview.” 

What started out with a question: Why doesn’t the world work the way we were told it does? Turned into a realization that we, as a species are not adapting well to the realities of our times.

While Being Spherical provides the core foundation for a new way to see, think and act, in this dawning era of interconnectivity and interdependency, Phil believes people also need a way to model and apply this in real-life without having to study the sciences behind it. That’s what he’s doing now; what he and Pam are both doing now. Their boutique R&D company, Spherit, has developed a technology that demonstrates to people that it is possible, and easy, to make better decisions, in real-time, when you update your personal operating system from mechanistic to holistic.

More than 40,000 people in different ages and demographics have experienced this humane technology, in many fields and uses, including the health industry, workforce, education, employment readiness, food security, and interpersonal relations, used by U.S. military personnel.

To be spherical, you must see, think, and act spherical, say Phil and Pam.

More About Phil and Pam Lawson

When Pam and Phil met at the age of six, in the lobby of a church in Denver, both of their families were in crisis.

Pam’s mother had recently died from complications of multiple sclerosis, and Phil’s little sister had been diagnosed with leukemia and was enduring the treatments to recover.

They were in survival mode back then, experiencing constant, disruptive change. A new step-family for Pam; a cross-country move for Phil. Both of them switching houses and schools, repeatedly, in the midst of leaving friends and losing track of each other.

But Pam and Phil had a bond that was unforgettable. And Phil tracked Pam down the winter of 1968, when she was 13, when his family returned to Colorado for the holidays.

They married young at 18, anxious to make a difference in the world the only way they knew how, as volunteer mission workers, traveling the dusty back roads of East Texas armed with ginormous convictions. Followed by three years in Alabama, and seven years in Mississippi, dedicated to a cause that spanned a decade in the Deep South, paying their own way as janitors, floor cleaners and trash haulers.

They were poor. Malnourished. Embedded. But as they moved through disadvantaged communities, ravaged by inhumane conditions, they had rare and extraordinary experiences that fed them priceless information— experiences, that transcended what they had imagined was their purpose there.

And then, at the age of 29, an unexpected turn of events launched them unprepared into the business world. At the very moment the marketplace was facing unprecedented changes from new and disruptive technologies, including Microsoft’s personal computer operating system.

As Microsoft released Windows in 1985 and reached 2,793 employees by the end of 1988, Phil was working his way up from the production department of a startup multimedia firm in Dallas to the president of that company, making it a beta test center for new technology applications. And Pam rose through the ranks of the same company from quality control, to the art department, to Creative Director. By 1988, Phil had grown the operation from a handful of people to a staff of nearly 40, covering round-the-clock shifts.

Phil and Pam were busting down barriers by then, and they kept going— living and working in Hollywood; traveling to other countries on business; rubbing shoulders with creatives and intellectuals. They even experienced a couple of historic natural disasters.

But as they moved through religion, business, and the arts; through deprivation and privilege; through convention and eccentricity, they began to detect common core characteristics in all human activities, no matter the box. They began to see patterns. And they wondered if the power of personal computing might one day expedite human behavior growth.

More importantly, they began to realize they had unconventional human skills. They could adapt, flex and respond to life’s challenges, in real-time, better than anyone else they knew. But they needed scientific proof to explain what they were experiencing before anyone would take them seriously.

So, they went in search of it, at the age of 44, dropping out of the business world and moving to a cabin in the Colorado Rockies to study, think and write.

They are part of a consilience of dynamic thinkers emerging from the limits and lessons of that era, who know if they are to live well, and meaningfully, in this dawning era of interconnection, it will require a dramatic transformation in the way we see, think and act.

More about Phil:

  • Besides being an author, inventor, patent-holder, and public speaker, Phil has worked for companies in the roles of COO, President, and EVP, (at a publicly traded internet company.)
  • In addition, Phil was a management consultant for seven years and traveled internationally on business, a portion of that time living and working in Hollywood.

Also, Phil has strategically designed 5 technology systems and worked with teams of programmers to deploy them:

  • The first online HMO member enrollment kiosk for HealthNet, a California HMO, working with ESRI on this project
  • One of the first web-based GIS sites for consumers (@InfoNow for Visa)
  • A fully integrated XML product to create Web sites & identical CD-ROMs for photographers (@StockImagery)
  • Digital Asset Media Management (HTML-based) (@D-Pics)
  • Spherical Modeling Tool. U.S. Patent approved 2008 (@Spherit)

In 2011 Phil began identifying ways the scripts and subroutines of the Spherit IP might help socialize AI (for use by bots or AI personal assistants) and by 2013 he was strategically designing ways it could work.

More about Pam:

When Phil and Pam lived and worked in Hollywood, Pam was a Photo-Illustrator. She did projects for the publishing, periodical and entertainment industries.

Additionally …

  • Pam has been a Creative Director at two different agencies (a multi-media firm and the image bank) influencing the message and direction of those companies.
  • Pam worked as a reporter for nine years giving voice to a string of mountain communities west of Denver, and received nearly two dozen journalism awards.
  • As the co-owner of Spherit, Pam has been responsible for defining the voice of the company (translating abstract R&D concepts and protocols into human- speak) and for product messaging for the user interface. This has included creating online interactive pages, presentations, and co-producing countless informational videos.

Bobby Berge
Guest Occupation: Drummer
Guest Biography:

B   O   B   B   Y

B   E   R   G   E






In the spring of 1970 Bobby Berge got a call from legendary guitarist Tommy Bolin in Boulder, and he said he wanted him to come out and audition with his band Zephyr. Bobby had been listening to their first album, and absolutely loved Tommy’s playing and the sound of the group. After flying out and hitting it off with the group with an initial audition, he immediately moved out to Boulder. He played with Zephyr for the next year or so and it was an extremely exciting experience. Boulder was a thriving musical Mecca at the time, and they would play in and around Boulder at small outdoor mini-Woodstock types of concerts.

They played in Denver at Mammoth Gardens along with Joe Cocker and Leon Russell. For a good year they flew to many major cities and played at huge concerts on the same bill as musical greats like Steve Winwood, Mountain, Fleetwood Mac, the Kinks, and Iggy Pop to name a few. In the fall of 1970, he played drums on the second Zephyr album Going Back to Colorado at Electric Lady Studios in NYC with the great Eddie Kramer as engineer. This was Bobby’s first major experience playing with Tommy Bolin and it was fantastic to say the least.

Bobby was asked if he did play on “The Grind” on the Teaser album. He did play on that track, but somehow the record company got the info wrong on the cover.

Bobby says … Tommy was always outgoing, upbeat, friendly, and extremely funny! He was so much fun for a drummer to play with. I loved to play off him and copy his lightning fast riffs as we jammed. I learned a lot about weird time signatures from him. I miss those hippie days and miss Tommy and playing with one of the greatest.

On Bobby’s work with the great Buddy Miles … Buddy’s a very talented, soulful man. During 1975-76 I did more work with him than with Tommy Bolin. I was switching back and forth with projects, mainly recording. I did the More Miles Per Gallon album with Buddy in 1975, and Bicentennial — A Gathering Of The Tribes in 1976. When we played live Buddy would play drums for a few tunes, then I’d hop on the skins and Buddy would go out front and sing. We had a five-piece horn section, a funky bass player, and keyboards. It was wild playing with both artists during that period (1975-76). I’ll put up some Buddy stuff some time, kind of a disco feel but very funky!

Charisse Marei
Guest Occupation: Eco-Conscious Lifestyle Expert & Interior Design & Healthy Home Advocate
Guest Biography:

As a passionate advocate for a healthy eco-living lifestyle, Charisse focuses on transforming interior spaces into beautiful, breathe-able dwellings to support the home, well-being, and the natural environment. Her mission is to empower and inspire you with the necessary tools of the trade to begin your transformational journey today.

Even as a little girl, I loved feeling the energy of the earth under my feet and uplifting energy that radiates from others. I was drawn to nature, to loving it, protecting it, and basking in its beauty and goodness.

And I still am! I’m a delightful spirit who loves traveling, taking long walks and deep breaths of pure, clean air, and living a healthy, creative lifestyle in harmony with nature.

I earned my B.S. in Interior Design from Philadelphia University, and went on to study Feng Shui at the NY School of Feng Shui and Graceful Lifestyles.

The more I became conscious of the connection between the homes we live in, the air we breathe, the lifestyle we live, and our overall joyfulness and well-being, the more I wanted to learn how to weave these threads together on a higher plateau. For me, interior design is about so much more than picking the right pieces of furniture—although I enjoy that, too! But at the heart of it, eco-conscious design is about cultivating the energy of the space to support the connection between a beautiful healthy home and quality of our well-being that also supports our planet.

I became a certified Professional Building Biology Environmental Consultant (BBEC) through the Building Biology Institute where I studied the science of healthy buildings, green design, eco-consultancy, and sustainable design. I added the gentle power of essential oils to my repertoire while attending the Young Living Natural Remedies and Beauty Schools.

The Dave Duerson Athletic Safety Fund, Inc. (DDASF) was founded in May 2012 to commemorate the legacy of my brother, Dave Duerson (2-time Super Bowl Champion, NFL Man of the Year, during his 11- year career with the NFL).  Dave died on February 17, 2011 from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the chest.  It was confirmed on May 2, 2011 by the Neurologists at Boston University that he suffered from the 4th and final stage of Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE).

Mission Statement (DDASF):

Dave Duerson Athletic Safety Fund, Inc. is a continuous program to educate all students (Grades K – 12) about concussion awareness and detection. Furthermore, we provide neurocognitive testing for all male and female student-athletes in all sports (from Cheerleading to Football) in 7th through 12th grades. This fund is designed to be a sustainable funding mechanism for the school systems that we support.

Concussion History:

My wife Lori and I originated this 501(c)3 organization.  We have a strong passion for this fund to succeed not only because of what happened to Dave, but also because I have hidden disabilities as a result of a concussion that I suffered while playing basketball at IUPUI in Indianapolis, Indiana in 1977 – which left me paralyzed on the left side for 6 months.  I returned to play my 2nd year at IUPUI and sustained a career-ending injury.   Ihave been diagnosed with neurological and psychological issues which have become more pronounced as the years have passed.  From the age of 30 to 61, I have been voluntarily hospitalized for these brain traumas 19 times.   This is a huge driving factor for my passion concerning the high-technology ImPACT Concussion Testing as a tool to assist the physician in the decision-making process regarding the athlete returning to play.   I have received continued treatment for these diseases since age 18.  Ihave Accumulative Concussion Syndrome, in addition to the neurological and psychological problems. Dave was my Medical Power of Attorneyfor 20 years. In addition, Dave was also on the Board of Directors for the NFL Players Association for retired player’s disability.

Johnnie Bolin grew up in the Midwest in the 50's. His Father, Richard Bolin, worked at a packing plant and Mother, Barbara, worked at the hospital. They had busy full-time jobs not related to music, so hardly the parents to raise three boys that made music all their lives. Johnnie’s oldest brother, Tommy, was a guitarist, Johnnie a Drummer, and his younger brother, Rick (Pudge), was a singer. They all started playing in bands after getting their first musical instruments and then performed at high schools, ballrooms, street dances, etc. Tommy left school and moved to Denver at age 16. He got in a recording band and was on American Bandstand at age 18. He went on to play with concert bands -- James Gang and, one of the biggest rock bands of the 70's, Deep Purple. Johnnie somewhat followed his path at the time. He continued to play around the Midwest and got a big break joining Tommy’s band in ‘76, playing Mile High Stadium in Denver changing his life forever. Johnnie tragically lost his brother later that year but continued on. He moved to California, Miami, NYC, and, eventually, settled in Minneapolis. At that time, he accepted a job with Black Oak Arkansas and traveled worldwide for the next 30 years. Playing, recording, and traveling were and are Johnnie’s life. Today he’s back in his hometown of Sioux City, Iowa... and still beating the “skins" after all these years.

Cindy littlefield Sacro Wedgy
Guest Occupation: Back specialist, owner of sacrowedgy.com
Guest Biography:

My Father now 95 developed the Sacro Wedgy many years ago to mimic an osteopath technique of holding the sacrum known as the keystone of the anatomy. This technique was used many years ago and is still used by a variety of therapists. Over the last 30 years I have traveled extensively demonstrating how to use the Sacro Wedgy to anyone that will listen. We started at all sports events because of my Dad's background being a football coach and trainer as he would hold the sacrum of his athletes for at least 20 minutes as taught to him by an osteopath. We use gravity to do most of the work to rebalance the muscles. After meeting many massage therapists that were also athletes we moved to massage therapy conventions which is mainly what we do now. I teach classes to therapists so they can use the Sacro Wedgy for self care and then show clients how to relax at home in between visits. This is a great self care tool and combined with the neck support we incorporate with the Sacro Wedgy creates a total balancing system.

One project we are involved with now is working with veterans suffering from back pain as well as other issues such as PTSD - I'm proud to be working with an amazing group of therapists coordinating events for veterans having speakers as well as other natural therapies.Dick Liberty has an All Things American program for veterans and the Sacro Wedgy has helped a lot of these veterans find a way to help themselves at home on a daily basis.

Our website and business is family owned and operated and all of our products are made in the USA.

Scott Cooney
Guest Occupation: Partner with Montana’s Natures Element, a CBD Health & Wellness Company
Guest Biography:

I have been blessed with being raised in Big Sky Country, Montana that is, on the banks of Rattlesnake Creek in Missoula. Truly a river runs through it. It was youthful curiosity that took me traveling the world as well as taking a sabbatical to recenter by doing some evangelical outreach in the Philippines. It was after that I married and was gifted shortly thereafter with two beautiful daughters.

While my entrepreneurial thirst in business started early in life, it didn’t break stride until my early 20’s when we employed 50 team members performing paint and coatings throughout the Northwest. Within years our growth sprouted multiple vertical integrated entities servicing the railroad, timber, mining and heavy construction sectors. My spare time was filled with commercial, industrial real estate development and entitlement which I still pursue today.

A full life of recreational and business pursuits collided with a traumatic automobile accident which left me in a wheel chair for 2 years and the possible loss of multiple limbs. After over a dozen surgeries it was time to reevaluate my priorities once again.

It was then in 2015 that I stumbled on an unrealized passion……that of farming. Farming along with the ranching of Scottish Highlander cows turned my world upside down. The tranquility and restorative powers of being in amongst some of the cleanest air, water, soils and Rocky Mountain peaks did amazing things for my mind and body.

With chronic pain being a part my daily life, it was a natural fit to start researching CBD cultivation and processing. Montana Organic Hemp LLC was formed and our first crop planted in 2018. This was followed by a second crop in 2019 with a growth of 300%.  This massive increase in biomass harvest brought us into the second phase of our business model; that of processing for the extraction of cannabinoids.The team that has organically formed in this pursuit all share the same goal of bettering each other’s lives. We are blessed to have all the key ingredients for a successful high growth business while living in one of the worlds last best places and delivering groundbreaking natural product that is changing peoples lives for the better.
