i was thinking this was a poecilopompilus interruptus, however i could be wrong... any help by someone more certain would be appreciated.

That is P. interruptus, the queen of the overdressed spider wasps. One of my favorite insects.

i have to agree
I have to agree, it is one pleasant wasp... thank you for the confirmation Mr. Raney.
