I’m the founder and president of Chicago’s largest non-profit anime club. We host 8 meetups each month for over 800 members who have helped us raise over $1,000 to date.

Our membership is comprised of working professionals who appreciate good anime, enjoy sharing Japanese pop culture knowledge, and absolutely love crushing all those stale otaku stereotypes. I never thought my simple event calendar would transform into a fully fledged non-profit anime organization over the span of 10 years, but I’m certainly glad I stuck with it.
