As a long time Burner, I attended my first regional event "Apogaea" in 2013. I have been going back every year since. I began volunteering at the event in 2014 with various departments including DPW, Gate and others. In 2019 I took on the role of Registration Lead pre-event where I was able to assist other participants with their questions and concerns regarding their art, theme camp's, fire etc. I plan on continuing this role in 2020. Incorporated in 2004, Apogaea is now the longest continuously operating premier regional event in the world. As a board member I hope to contribute to Apogaea's growth and long term success by bringing my experience and enthusiasm of the Burning Man culture to the organization.
