Geoff Ramler
Website Curator

Geoff Ramler has been in Seattle for a few years now, and he couldn't be happier. He graduated in May of 2010 from Northern Arizona University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Theatre (they have those), where he performed in many productions and student projects. After a brief time in Phoenix, AZ, Geoff made his way to the great Northwest for a change of pace, and a chance to work with a few of his friends he made in college, making beautiful art. Thus, he joined quiet. Over the past few years Geoff has been in a variety of productions and showcases with and outside of quiet. Along with being on quiet's Leadership Team, Geoff is also a freelance web designer and magician, working at the Market Magic Shop in Seattle's historic Pike Place Market.

Kelsey Hess
Visual Art Liaison / quiet Wednesdays

Kelsey is involved in various aspects of quiet. You might spot her ticketing at the next quiet speaks, reviewing pieces for quiet Shorts, working on cultivating quiet's visual art community, or behind the scenes doing other awesome tasks. Kelsey is excited to be a part of a community that is so passionate about intentional art and opening up dialogue about social issues. She is continually inspired by the honesty she sees in the art pieces quiet receives. When she isn't creating meaningful art with quiet, she spends her time working as a baker and exploring the city.
Sadie Rose
Open Mic Project Manager

Sadie recently graduated from the University of Washington with a B.A. in Drama. In her younger years she wanted to act, however as her organization and people skills grew she became more passionate about supporting artist than she was about being center stage. Believing in the power of art to change how we experience ourworld, Sadie hopes to incite more people to see theater, live music, go to galleries, and encourage the experience of community through artistic endeavors. Being quietls Open Mic Facilitator is an exciting step and she can't wait to work with a community that supports the creation of meaningful art. Sadie is also in love with her 2-year-old daughter, practicing yoga and creation in general (from cooking to quilting to power tools).
