Brandon Monroe
Director of Marketing
Content & SEO Manager, Nutrabolt

I’m a passionate marketing leader by day and sports lover all day, every day. I like to play competitive sand volleyball in my free time. I’m deathly afraid of heights, but love flying on airplanes. If I could retire tomorrow, I'd spend the rest of my days traveling the world. First stop, Antarctica. I hear it's cool.

Rachel Ray
Director of Events
Production Coordinator, Resignation Media

I am an experiential expert in offline events for an online media company. I love creating a comfortable, fun environment for people to network while having a great time. I come off demure, but you’d never guess that I could make grown men cry when I play against them in first person shooter video games. I love anything involving the arts; painting, drawing, writing, creating. While I was fortunate enough to start in my career fresh out of college, I’d love to one day own and operate my own events company. My mom raised me to be as polite as possible to anyone I meet, unless they’re a Penguins fan.

Chelsea Miller
Director of Event Programming
Events Producer, Resignation Media

I'm an Events Producer specializing in offline experiential marketing for an online media company. I’m passionate about bringing creative ideas to life. I would travel every day if I could and love spending time with my dog, Baci. You will most likely find me paddle boarding or at a concert venue on the weekends. I dream of becoming the next Dave Grohl on drums. I have a degree in Interior Design but have worked in floral and events the past 10 years and loved every minute.

Keith Miersma
Director of Sponsorships
Channel Sales Manager, OnRamp

I have spent much of my career in the technology space, focused on helping clients with solutions for disaster recovery, compliance, data protection, security, and cloud hosting. I grew up working on my Dad’s dairy farm in Southern California to now working in Datacenters in Austin. I’m left-handed and a twin. I enjoy hiking the greenbelt and hanging with my pups. I prefer hunting over fishing and whiskey over beer.
