JONATHAN BRUSH

Director of Student Life

 

I love doing pretty much anything with my wife and children, especially if it involves an adventure. I’m pretty convinced I have the best job on the planet and there are few things I like doing better than meeting and being around Unbound students. My job is to come up with and encourage really enormous crazy complicated ideas so that Hannah can simplify them, Aubry can make them better, Megan can organize them, and Kasey can make them happen.

FACT: I managed to fly out of a village in Honduras in a tiny airplane from a dirt runway just ahead of a group of AK-47 carrying drug runners who were upset my friend had just taken their picture.

KASEY FRISKE

Project Leader and Student Cabinet Director

 

I have been involved in Student Life since its founding in 2013, and it has been one of the greatest adventures of my life! I lead the Student Cabinet who plans APEX plus lots of other random projects (especially brainstorming. I love brainstorming). Because of Student Life, I have met dozens and dozens of amazing students, and among them I found my favorite person in the whole world and married him in 2014.

FACT: Goldfish crackers, chocolate milk, and Snapple peach tea were my favorite study snacks. They helped me survive my Liberal Arts Capstone.

AUBRY MATNEY

Student Life Content & Marketing Manager

 

Growing up with an animator for a dad, I was pushed my whole life to be creative. I loved to dance, write music, direct plays and home movies starring my 7 siblings — and now, I find myself working one of the most creative jobs I can imagine. As the Content Manager, I get to make videos, design pretty much everything you see in Student Life, and brainstorm with my awesome team to make the Unbound student community better every year.

FACT: If there’s music playing, I’m probably dancing — very badly.

MEGAN WEBER

Executive Assistant

 

I enjoy organizing and managing everything and anything. Emails are relaxing and chaos-turned-order is my passion. When I haven’t disappeared into spreadsheets, I can usually be found on video calls with long-distance friends discovering new ways to share life over time zones. Currently, I live in a California beach community with my parents, two sisters, and two energetic puppies.

FACT: My nickname around here is “Folders” because properly storing emails requires folders and subfolders. Lots of them. The rest of the Student Life team doesn’t quite understand this

HANNAH LINDE

Student Life Manager

 

With my recent BSBA in Project Management from LUO, I serve as the Project Manager for our team. From international mission trips to more local student events, I love connecting students to each other so they can make their own ideas reality through the support of the community. Between investing in friends near and far, you can find me reading books, loving on my dog, and trying new recipes with my family.

FACT: I met my husband on the Unbound Ecuador trip in 2015, and we have a goal to visit a new country every year. Five countries down, lots to go.

JARED WIGGINS

Student Life Marketing Intern

 

Being an artist and optimist, I love to find ways to be creative. In fact my job involves being creative. Being the Marketing intern, I’m involved with anything marketing – creating content on social media, designing marketing strategies, and implementing those strategies. I am always looking to use what I have learned as an Entrepreneurship major within life and work. When I am not working, I am probably studying, painting/drawing, playing the piano, or talking one-on-one with fellow Unbound students.

FACT: As an artist I need two mugs when painting, one that reads “paint water” and the other that reads “not paint water”. On too many occasions, I accidentally drink blue coffee.

ABRAHAM CHEN

Video Intern

 

Growing up in New York City as the oldest of five boys, life has always been an adventure, and a big part of it for me has been creating digital media! I love telling stories on the Be Unbound YouTube Channel and making new crazy ideas happen. If I’m not editing or shooting a video, you’ll most likely find me pouring over YouTube, sketching something Sci-fi, jamming out, or in a deep discussion with students on theology and tacos.

FACT: To my knowledge, I have been on both the longest Empower Call to date as well as the largest Empower Call so far!
