These are the folks who dot all the I’s and cross all the T’s to bring you this celebrated arts and culture festival each year!
Jay Adam has worked with community organizations and non-profits in communications and program delivery for nearly a decade. With a degree in English Literature and philosophy from the University of Guelph, Jay draws on his exceptional writing abilities almost daily in drafting proposals, reports and communications plans. Recently though he’s become a bit nutty about spreadsheets as well. A foodie at heart, Jay can often be found apron-clad, experimenting in the kitchen.

Philip Jones is that guy who makes everyone wait while he stops the film on movie night because the aspect ratio is totally off. He’s a pixel pusher. An A/V mixer. Your computer fixer. Marathon Netflixer. Spent his childhood resetting the clocks on VCRs. A disillusioned high school dropout with silicon dreams who went on to become the person you call when you forget the password to your email. Today, you can often find him under a MacBook, triple-encrypting his backup disks while mumbling randomly generated passwords. He’s thrilled to have finally landed that dream job in his niche of downloading movies off of the internet all day long.
