President & Volunteer
Feb 2011 - Present (10 years 7 months)
In 2016 I was voted President of the volunteer committee for the Bucktown Arts Fest. We're a homegrown Chicago arts & music festival, with over 30 years of history. All of our proceeds go towards arts programming in Bucktown & Wicker Park. As president I'm responsible for coordinating our volunteers to pull off a great fest, helping to jury in artist vendors, connecting with Bucktown neighbors and dealing with all sorts of minor disasters during the fest weekend. I've also done a good deal of design for the fest in my time volunteering. It's a ton of work, but it pays off in spades each August.
