Steven Radney

Hi! Meet Steven of Seismic. I met him last October through working out of @809 (where we host the #WeLoveCLT speaker series). He has a skill. It’s called listening. When we have a conversation I can see that he’s actively participating even though he’s not speaking. Does that sound weird? Well, I think it’s awesome […]

Jolenna Mapes

Hi! Meet Jolenna. Full disclosure. I’m a self-proclaimed Pink Toast Fanboy. I’ve always been an admirer of the work they put out. It’s awesome. Knowing the people behind the scenes like Jolenna making it all happen make’s it even better. It’s driven by passion. I love it. I asked her five questions. Addie asked her […]

Katie Levans

Hi! Meet Katie. Our next speaker. I followed Katie (not creepily) for a long time. From Sweet Tater Blog and Honeystuck to Plateshare, Tresata, Charlotte Agenda and more. To be honest, she intimidated me. I felt more like a fan than a friend. Then we sat, had coffee and who would’ve thought. She’s human… just […]

Rachel Martin

Hi! Meet Rachel. If I had to pick one word to describe her it’d be extraordinary. Her work as a designer. Extraordinary. Her desire to make the world a better place by only working with socially conscious businesses. Extraordinary. Her ability to light up a room with her smile. Extraordinary. She’s someone I wouldn’t mind […]

Aaron Dodge

Hi! Meet Aaron. There’s very few people I know in real life that have a true knack for comedy. It’s a skill. Funny all the time is hard. Aaron is that person. He’s hysterical. I think consistency is everything and he nails it 100% of the time. We all need a little more laughter in […]

Brigitte Acosta

Hi! Meet Brigitte. Another Twitter turned IRL friendship. I try to break down those digital barriers and meet as many people IRL as possible. I can definitely say Brigitte is without a doubt one of the more fascinating people I’ve met. I try to keep my meetings very scheduled because they can quickly get off […]
