Angel is the funniest person that she knows.  She enjoys 5 cent candies, things with two wheels and house plants.  Angel has a huge passion for connecting people and providing positive community space within Calgary, which was the main thing that inspired her in the creation process of Market Collective.  Another major inspiration was her love for accessible live local music.  For 6 years she has hosted house shows in her home, and Market Collective became a natual extension from her living room to the greater community!

Angela is a highway-driving, hug-giving gypsy, always in search of a new adventure and challenge.  Her passion for the arts, as well as her natural drive for community development, has led her to the Market Collective.  Her artist‘s heart buds at the idea of creation, and she incorporates that love of creativity with everything that she does.  Angela follows her own path of artistic entrepreneurship, and strives to help others accomplish their dreams along the way.  If you ever meet this small-town girl, mention that you’re hungry…she makes a pretty mean brunch and is always willing to follow it with a game of crib.

This Scandinavian crazy, hippie-ish, bright, loving girl loves finding the best parts of people and lets the world see them in all their glory!  She has passion for community, a good heart to heart chat, international development, beautiful spaces, summertime, beach volleyball, and back country anything.  She believes art is a great way to enhance community and let people experience the brighter side of life!

Ben is the glasses-wearing, tech-talking audio badass of the team. He enjoys alternating between wrapping cables really quickly and making musicians feel welcome, warm, and fuzzy. When he’s not at MC, this black-haired devil keeps himself nicely overbooked with his sound/lighting company (Mossy Rock Productions), his recording studio (77Sound), his band (Locomotive Ghost), and his day job (Theatre Services at MRU). Though he rarely creates visual art, Benexpresses himself with bass guitar, ukulele, and spoken word.
