The Employee Lounge is a self-initiated project about the service industry in Kansas City. Working in collaboration with photographer Tina Magee-Jenks, our goal is to get to know the people who serve us better while starting a discussion about how we can make Kansas City better. For that blog, I find myself playing completely different roles than I do for my freelance graphic design work and for Bristow Fresh. I juggle responsibilities as the editor, writer, art director and public relations person. It has truly been a labor of love and getting to know my city better has been an exciting and eye-opening journey.
