Christine Esposito

Curtis Walker
Studio Manager, Photo Bang Bang

Secretary I joined the neighborhood in 2010 when I opened Photo Bang Bang. I began serving the board in 2013 when I was hired to maintain and manage the 18b.org website and develop the social media presence. I work with BLVDS Magazine Adventurist Guide, Lyft and do freelance tech support on the side. I believe the City should waive business fees for artists in the arts district, and we should advocate for affordable live/work spaces for artists and creatives to establish themselves.
