The BONK! Crew

Nick Demske the leader of this merry band of misfits as well as the curator for BONK! He is the cruelty free glue that keeps us together.
Jennifer Simpkins runs our “Local Spotlight” segment of each event. She also forces people to give us their e-mail addresses. And she’s darn good at it.
Peg Rousar-Thompson: our most excellent video homie. She records every BONK! and uploads the video to YouTube.
Amanda Gaastra our digital art diva. She creates all of the mad-gorgeous posters we have for every event.
Dan Scheidell the guy who’s can-do attitude keeps BONK! running smoothly. He sets up sound equipment, scouts venues, puts up posters. If you see a BONK! flyer around town, Dan probably put it there.
Alex Reilly our digital press wizard. They are the one who sends you emails, updates Facebook, runs this website.
Elkid Alvarez the data collection queen. Her love of numbers helps us keep track of the little things that make a big difference.
Celia Schulz the legend behind the lens. Celia is the fantastic photographer who takes pictures at the BONK! events.
Ciara Hartzog The newest addition to the BONK! crew. She will be keeping track of all the BONK! greenbacks and helping us find some more with fundraising and grant writing.
