Thanks for stopping by!
I’m Aimee Giese (rhymes with easy) and I am a business owner, graphic designer, web developer, photographer and blogger from Denver, Colorado. My husband Bryan and I have one son, Declan (Dex), who has headed off to college, so we’re now empty nesters. What!
I used to be more of a mom or parent blogger, but in truth, I am now a lifestyle blogger who posts about concerts, music, travel and tech. We like to have fun, and we hope you like spending your time online with us.
I have been Greeblemonkey since 2005. Both “Greeble” and “Monkey” were my son’s nicknames when he was in my belly. Monkey because he was constantly jumping, and Greeble because my husband is insane. Seriously. He just made that word up. NO it’s not my last name, NO it’s not a child’s toy – it’s just a silly word from some silly people. I changed to Greeblehaus in 2014 to show some of my heritage, and be more of an umbrella site for my family since “haus” is German for “house.”
I used to co-own a 35 person communications research and web development firm in Denver. In a nutshell, the company builds health education websites that help people. During my tenure, we were named one of Inc. Magazine’s Top 5000 Fastest-Growing Companies in America and #50 among all Colorado woman-owned businesses. In 2011, I sold my half of the company and went out on my own.
I’m now Giese Media. I work in the four areas I love most: Graphic Design, Web Development, Social Media, and Photography.

Brands & Advertising
I work with brands on projects that match me, my life, my family and my readers. Most often that means music, concerts, festivals, going out, travel and tech, but it could be anything! Examples of past and ongoing brand partnerships include Nintendo, PBS Kids/PBS, Coca Cola, Ford, AT&T, Riu Hotels and the ONE Campaign.
