Christen, blog manager and unicorn wrangler by trade, is the HBIC of keeping the 35 Denton blog running smoothly. A Denton transplant originally from Wyoming, she especially enjoys happy hours on patios, being able to wear flip-flops nearly year-round and isn’t afraid to root for her beloved Red Sox even though she’s deep in Ranger country. In her non-35 life, she also manages The Broke-Ass Bride and helps Dentonites keep their sanity with their own weddings through Little Wedding Extras. She has an affinity for cats, high-fives and sparkles. Adele — Send My Love (To Your New Lover)** This is […]

Richard Oram hails from England, as is still a little unsure how he ended up in Denton in the first place, but is quite happy about it. He rocks the title of a Venue Coordinator for 35 Denton. He is currently too old to still be doing this kind of thing.  A random selection; it reflects, though, what I’ve been listening to: a lot of 60’s garage, some oldies and an occasional newie. 1. The Rolling Stones – Little Red Rooster. The Rolling Stones at their brilliant, bluesy best. Brian Jones influence cannot be overstated. 2. Pink Floyd – Set […]

Mindy is the Hospitality Director for 35 Denton. Along with working with 35 Denton, she works creatively with other festivals like Thin Line Fest and Best Little Brewfest in Texas and her and a few friends have a charity called Friends with Benefits • Denton. She does have a job, which some people don’t seem to believe, with an ad agency in Dallas. She fills her extra time (haha, free time, what’s that?) with whiskey, craft beer & friends, playing kickball and softball in city leagues and relaxing with her pup and boyfriend. I Got You (I Feel Good) – James […]

Nikki is the Creative Assistant of 35 Denton and she would be considered a sophomore, thankfully high school is not a thing. Personal Assistant in law by day, Creative Assistant in the evening, night, or early morning, professional dog sitter all the other hours of the day. Nikki has been in Denton for five years but mainly lives out of her car, as you can find at least 20 pairs of shoes or 10 outfits spilling out of her trunk at any given time. Red Bull fanatic, nature lover, devoted traveler, shoe collector, musically bi-polar, sports ball, and professional awkwardly sarcastic. […]

Christopher is the Vending Coordinator for 35 Denton and one of the newest additions to the team.  Despite hustling and bustling in Dallas as a financial process management analyst, Christopher spends most of his time  in Denton (former resident and UNT grad) with his ever so amazing girlfriend, Shaina. Hobbies include being a grammar Nazi (English major), beer enthusiast and connoisseur, naturaphile, disc golfer, mountain climber, professional cat juggler (not true)  and music lover.   Unknown Mortal Orchestra – Little Blu House As a starter, I felt the first song should be a band that has been on heavy rotation. […]
