Bryan is a passionate programmer. He loves to focus on the intersection of business and technology. Bryan got involved with non-profits through his fiance, Silvia Sanchez. She was planning Lindsay Wildlife Experience’s gala and felt that there had to be a better tool to plan the event. Thus the first basic version of MyGala was born in 2013. Using MyGala, Lindsay’s event more than doubled the previous event’s revenue and guests raved about the decreased wait times. Since then, Bryan worked all of Lindsay’s fundraising events doing check-in, data entry, check-out, item pick-up duties, and volunteer coordination. In his spare time, you can find Bryan playing basketball, programming, or hanging out with Silvia and their Siberian Husky, Riley.
With an eye for marketing, and a knack for SEO, Silvia enjoys writing content and finding creative partnerships. Silvia worked for Lindsay Wildlife Experience for two years grant writing and planning auction events by managing auction solicitations and item packaging, corporate sponsorships, leading committee meetings, and recruiting and training volunteers. Under her management, Lindsay’s events increased revenue year over year and guests raved about the improved experience. Silvia is passionate about environmental conservation, and helping nonprofits succeed. In her spare time, Silvia loves to travel, go on hikes with Bryan and Riley, or do some yoga.
