These are the folks that run the show. Feel free to drop them a line if you've got any questions... about anything
Patrick began Ignite Minneapolis in 2009 after happening upon a live stream of Ignite Boulder. It just seemed like such a great idea. He is a user experience designer in the twin cities.
Mostly he likes sailing, though.
Kela helped get Ignite Minneapolis started and continues to work with our volunteers, sponsors, and media. Kela is a sales and marketing executive in the twin cities.
She's married to the habanero dude, so she gets to do a lot of sailing, too.
Organizer of things
Mykl, "designer of things," has been with Ignite since 2009. He's often the guy doing the tweeting, and also running the presentations.
His talk from Ignite Minneapolis 1, When good people pick bad fonts, is among the most-viewed Ignite talks on the web.
Lindsi coordinates the charity portion of the event, and helps wrangle sponsors, speakers, venues and attendees.
She is a former nonprofiteer turned digital strategist at Weber Shandwick, and she's been helping out with Ignite since 2009.
Heather has been with Ignite as a photographer since 2011, but sometimes also helps as a general-purpose gopher. Her hobbies include photography, gophers, and writing short autobiographies in the third person.
