Adam Kelley moved to the Central Florida from his home state of Indiana almost 14 years ago. Seeking out the culture that he didn’t have access to in the Midwest, he immersed himself in the Arts community almost immediately.

For the past three years, he worked with Enzian Theater and Florida Film Festival as their box office supervisor, as well as assisting with programming, public relations and customer service. Outside of work, Adam’s varied interests include photography, movies, live music, cooking, travelling and most of all: good conversation with great people.
