Meet Bronlynn, in her own words:

I have such a hard time with bios, but here goes. I’m an Akron native who has a passion for our community. By day, I work in philanthropy and by night, I’m Batman…. Just kidding. I don’t have that kind of money. 

When I’m not working, I’m reading, cooking, or exploring our beautiful world and uncovering the magic in it. I suppose I could call myself an artist or a writer, but I prefer the term storyteller. It sounds mysterious, like that guy in the earlier season of ‘Once Upon a Time.’ Anyway, I firmly believe that everyone has a story to tell and I share mine through a range of mediums.

Ray Whin often comments on how frequently I appeared in other people’s takeovers; I figured it’s about time I did one of my own. Unfortunately, we’re still under a stay-at-home order so my excursions are somewhat limited, but I’m going do my best to showcase my version of Akron and the wonderful people in it. Thanks for joining me this week.
