Full story here.

Throughout 2017, we are working with our interns to highlight 52 Creatives from the NEPA region. We believe creativity is a broad term that cannot be easily confined within the walls of one simple definition. We want to know what being creative means to you and how you bring that creativity to light.​

Dan Kimbrough is our 26th #NEPACreative of 2017. Dan brings creativity to the area through supporting other media professionals.

Producer, storyteller, and educator at heart, Dan likes to see others shine and do his best to help people see things through, promote their work, or just get better at what they do.

Although he cannot recall when he started, Dan has always been a storyteller/documentarian and project manager of sorts. He’s less interested in the spotlight and more interested in shining the light on others and their works.

Dan has worked with local non-profits like NEPA BlogCon and the Roller Radicals. He has also photographed bands and events to help people promote themselves. As a professor at Misericordia University, Dan incorporates his years of experience into the classroom providing students the tools they need to succeed once they graduate.

Caroline Jones is our 24th #NEPACreative of 2017. Caroline brings creativity to the area through writing children’s books.

Caroline discovered when she was in high school that far too many young children of NEPA did not know how to read, nor did they have their own books. Caroline’s motivation to inspire young children to read and to educate their parents on why reading is so important launched the Read to Succeed Project.

Her first book, “One More Book, Please!” was published in 2013 and since then has traveled all over NEPA as well as nationally and internationally reading to schools and child areas promoting childhood literacy.

Caroline’s aspiration to earn a PhD in Leadership has taught her that there is an absence of understanding of leadership in children. This has lead to her second book, “The Line Leader,” which was published in November of 2016. The book is being used to give teachers and parents a resource to help their students and children understand how they can demonstrate leadership in their daily lives.

Caroline also furthers her initiative to promote reading as a titleholder in the Miss America Organization.

Dave Reynolds is our 23rd #NEPACreative of 2017. Dave brings creativity to the area through theater.

Dave found love in theater as a junior in high school when he assumed the role of Moonface Martin in Anything Goes. As Dave was surrounded by talented people who gave their time and talents generously, he watched the play come to life in which he considered it amazing. He then knew that theatre would always be a part of his life.

Today, Dave teaches theater at King’s College in Wilkes-Barre and is a founding member of the Gaslight Theatre Company. He is also very involved with the KISS Children’s Theatre.

When Dave does have free time, Dave is a family man as he coaches his son’s little league team and tries to visit Knoebels over the summer!
