Meet the Pack

Jessica Shafer is native to Rochester, Indiana and has been a small business owner of Mixed Medium Design since 2016.

By focusing on Graphic and Web Design, she creates projects like logos and business cards, websites, advertising, signs and flags, decals and stickers, and apparel  along with mixed medium projects. She is able to provide custom and professional design services to those local and nationwide.

Aside from her lifetime obsession with photography, Shelby Lopez enjoys creative writing, playing the ukulele and pursuing the constant need for adventure and travel with her family. A photographer for well over a decade, Shelby’s worked in portrait studios, for the local newspaper as a photojournalist and now photographs for Digital Wolf Magazine.


Shelby also realized having a clientele and being able to provide them with her talent was something she wanted to continue pursuing as a career and in 2018 she opened Expressions by Shelby Lopez in Kewanna, Indiana. Her passion to capture life’s perfect moments for her clients is what she says feeds her soul.

Brian Walsh was born in Jersey City, New Jersey, but moved at a young age to Naples, Florida, where he spent his formative years. He developed aspirations to become a writer, racking up minor publication credits while working predominantly in the retail industry. He met his future wife there in 1990 and moved to New York City in 1993. Read more about Brian and Christine on page 40.


In New York, he was able to find a creative outlet in journalism, writing for a handful of neighborhood newspapers in Manhattan, but continued to work retail as his main source of income. In the last decade, he lived there, Brian worked as a ‘back issue specialist’ for Midtown Comics, one of the world’s largest retailers of comic books and related merchandise, becoming an integral part of their online marketing presence. 

Brynn Wilson calls Rochester, IN her hometown and currently resides there with her husband and two children. Her English degree gives her a keen background in all things writing-related and it is put to good use modifying any piece of writing that is put in front of her. She loves helping other writers hone in on their craft.

Brynn and her family co-run a summer restaurant called The Flagpole that is a local favorite.

When Andrea Stineback was younger, she wanted to be an FBI agent like her hero Dana Scully from The X-Files. Andrea became the next best thing: a librarian. Originally a Floridian, Andrea moved to Indiana when she was 7 months old. Growing up in Leiters Ford, reading was one of her favorite hobbies. She was salutatorian of her graduating class at Culver Community and attended Indiana University Bloomington where she received a B.A. in English with a minor in Music Studies. She also has a Master of Library Science degree from IUPUI. With two IU degrees, Andrea is obviously a Hoosier fan.

 

Andrea has worked at the Fulton County Public Library since 2007. She started as a part-time clerk at the Aubbee Branch in Leiters Ford. She has also been the Teen Services Manager and Reference/Adult Services Librarian. Andrea is currently the Library Director. 

Justin Kleinrichert learned to love only after battling a rare frankfurter species from the plant Cur. With his new found sentiment, he found the courage to approach an awe inspiring woman with whom he would make whoopee. Resulting in the birth of two marvelous and admirable offspring. He enjoys the splendor of the outdoors; kayaking, tents, fire, beer.

 

He spends his days basking in rays of overwhelming happiness, brought forth from the treasures of his life's fulfillments. Justin has joined forces with Digital Wolf in hopes to bring rise to, and shed light on those who make the difference, The Creative Natives.

Before becoming Moose in the afternoon for radio station WROI 92.1 Giant fm, Paul Zartman was always a rural Indiana native who's family, the Zartman’s, have long-time ties in the Rochester community.

“I always wanted to get into radio as a kid, which I think is what led to me pretending I was a radio show host.I would record songs on to a tape and then play them back, pausing in between songs to jock.’

In 2019, when the radio station switched hands, he temporarily filled in for the morning DJ.  

When it was finally time for Paul to go back to hosting in the afternoon, the new owner wanted to set him apart by creating his“radio persona.” 

Based on his childhood nickname “Moose,” given to him by his dad, Moose in the afternoon was born and now is a full time evening host for WROI 92.1 GIANT fm.
