About the City's Organizers

  • Kevin Ward

    Hailing from the Buckeye State and a wanderer at heart (add Japan, Haiti, Mexico and Honduras to the list of places traveled) I find myself here in ATL having recently moved from San Francisco. Now, I find I am providing some of the best art and independent film for the masses here in the South. I used to assist and help organize the Columbus, OH Pk Night and I'm looking forward to continuing the fun here in ATL!

  • Beth Yeckley

    You can most often find me drinking local coffee or bourbon. Otherwise, I enjoy rock climbing, writing about music, cooking, studying up on over-fishing and the fight to keep fisheries sustainable, listening to all of Death Cab's discography, and this cat I own named Bear. I also drive my Corolla like it's a Porsche.

  • Lena Kotler-Wallace

    With nothing more than a dream and some sexy stockings, Lena created her ideal job as a social media strategist for a fancy salon chain, driving traffic and sales with an insightful understanding of Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest. Lena is the mastermind behind Modophile, an innovative project attracting the attention of her favorite clothing brand. She spent a year as the promotions liaison for Bang! Arts, and another year as a culinary creative studying pastry at Art Institute of Atlanta. With decades-old connections to Atlanta’s mysterious theater community, a passion for aerial arts, and approximately 16 different hair colors under her belt, there’s very little Lena hasn’t done. When not navigating the waters of social media, Lena spends her time nagivating the waters of motherhood and the modern marriage. If she's lucky she gets to play her ukulele, drink a glass of her favorite whiskey (2 cubes please and thank you) and read a book or two.
