Evan Jade Willey, who normally just goes by Ev, is the first and only girl on the Inventory Team at SeatGeek. Ev graduated from Wilkes University in 2016, with a degree in communication studies. When she's not chatting it up with ticket brokers she is probably sipping coffee with her face buried in a book while cuddling with her german shepherd King. Lastly, she's not like most girls she knows what she wants for dinner she's been thinking about it since lunch.

Marcus Williams is one of the dwindling born and raised Portlanders, and wouldn't have it any other way. He loves this city and everything to do with it, and is always excited to check out the various events, shows, hiking, or food that this city offers. Studied music and guitar since the age of 15 (trying to use his music knowledge to create electronic music now). Video game and general tech enthusiast since he can remember (played Nintendo at the age of 3). Lately he has been both working on fixing/improving his house, and trying to nurture his growing interest in D&D!
Jenny is a Frontend engineer at SeatGeek. She is a recent graduate from University of Virginia, where she studied computer science. However, in her last semester, she realized that she and psychology and philosophy were meant to be. She is an avid fan of Rick and Morty and Mr. Robot (filmed in our own NYC), and seeks meaning in everything from the amoeba to the multiverse. She has a repertoire of over 100 songs that she plays on the piano, and has not set up internet in her apartment since moving to NYC (but she is alive and well!).
Mladen leads SeatGeek’s burgeoning Dutch office (currently an office of one).
