Prior to her 2012 retirement from the staff of Burning Man, Andie Grace was a member of the Burning Man Executive Committee and the manager of the Communications Department and the Regional Network - in plain English, that means she went to an inordinate number of meetings. Her staff bio is here.
Alessandra (Allie) Wollner, aka Lotus, is a writer, educator, and community builder. She helps create the theme camp Milk + Honey, and earned her MFA in creative nonfiction from Ohio State. Her current project is an essay collection on the interrelation of gender language and power. On playa, when she's not dancing wildly, you can find her writing in her notebook atop a 40-foot trailer, wearing a leopard print onesie, at sunrise. See Allie's work at www.alewollner.com
Affinity, a Burner since 2000, was legally married on the Playa in 2001, was wedding coordinator and then training coordinator at Burning Man, before becoming the Black Rock Arts Foundation (BRAF) Social Media Coordinator and an Advisory Board Member. An attorney, she served on the Board of Directors of the Western Pension and Benefits Conference. She interned with the Human Awareness Institute for 10 years. She writes about how art is envisioned, produced, created, installed and its afterlife.
