BAILEY GILLIS grew up in Boston, Massachusetts. She recently graduated from the University of San Diego with a Bachelor of Arts in Communication and a Theatre Arts minor. Her love of the outdoors and the environment brought her to the west coast, where she has been able to enjoy all of the beauty that California has to offer. Bailey is passionate about social equity, and believes all forms of art allow people of diverse backgrounds to share and appreciate others’ experiences. She is looking forward to supporting San Diego’s community of artists and helping to further the relationships that these artists create.

KHANG LE was born, raised, and still currently lives in San Diego, California. He is currently entering his 4th year at San Diego State University as a Psychology major with an emphasis in Industrial / Organizational Psychology. Although majoring in Psychology, Khang lives his life for many passions such as art, music, nature, video games, movies, cars, community, social justice, culture, San Diego, and— last but not least— growth. What he enjoys most about life is seeing and helping things, people, and organizations reach their fullest potential and experiencing what the world has to offer. Khang is excited to help San Diego’s finest creators thrive and provide a voice for their artwork across different cultures, communities, and other facets.
