Akronite of the Week

Meet David & Marissa

Your Instagram host for the week of August 7, 2022

David and Marissa, the Everyday Akron hosts for the week of August 7, 2022

Meet David:

@bootleg_baby: I’m a new Akronite – moved to Akron in late 2021 and have been exploring ever since. I work remotely as a Software Engineer. I was born in California, raised in rural Texas, became an adult in Austin, and am loving my new place in the Akron Community. Catch me on the Towpath poppin’ a wheelie, at Akron Coffee Roasters for a bag of beans, or trying to capture the city through my camera lens.

Meet Marissa:

@marissadzubara: I’m a new-old Akronite. I grew up in Northeast Ohio, went to Archbishop Hoban for high school, then left at 18 for college and life in Austin, TX. 12 years later, I’ve returned(!) to soak up precious time with family. I’ve loved seeing my hometown from a new perspective and being proud of my roots in this city.

I work remotely – yes, that’s all day every day with my partner and our 2 dogs, but we love our crazy house! Being a homebody has connected me to our neighbors and neighborhood; I wouldn’t have it any other way. I can’t wait to share our favorite date nights, secret spots, and places that have made Akron our new home.
