Colorado Dream Team

In response to a interview by Susan Froyd of Westword, I hereby post my 2014 list of my dream team, that I would call to serve if the Mysterious Patron with endless money appeared. I work with many of you often and seldom. Love what you have done and taught me.

Colorado Creatives: Lonnie Hanzon’s Colorado Dream Team

Although I admire many, The list is only Colorado Creatives that I have personally collaborated with at one point or another, and would be willing to again (Not saying they would accept), but a good starting list. I know I forgot you. I am sorry.
