Zine Overlord/Executive Director
Lashonda is a musician, writer, and creative born and raised in Columbus, Ohio and currently based in Central Ohio. They primarily run UnBound (and work manically on creative projects) in their spare time . They also teach yoga classes in-person, online, and through YouTube. Among being obsessed with their pets, plants, astrophysics, and burlesque shows, their favorite thing in the world is laying on the couch and playing video games.
Event Planning Queen/Assistant Director
Anne is a young, independent woman who is new to Columbus, Ohio. Born a writer, Anne’s voice has always been more powerful via written word than it is spoken. She is excited to join the Unbound team, as it allows her to express herself and contribute to a project she believes in. Anne enjoys frequenting coffee shops, baking, and exploring cool places with her friends in her spare time.
Witch of the Adobe Suite/Publishing Lead
Enkfi is a 24 year old artist from Melbourne, Australia. An aggressive advocate for social justice, they spend their not-free-time (aside from working on UnBound) studying BIPOC history from around the world, especially Indigenous history and the history of injustice in their home of So-Called-Australia, expanding their knowledge as the budding anthropologist they are. They spend their free time cooking, getting lost in Tolkien novels, making visual art ranging from digital to oil-on-canvas to pencils on paper, and making best friends with their Animal Crossing villagers.
Tension Tamer (Tea)/Editing Lead
Casey is a Washington, D.C. native who made the leap over to Denison University to study English and theatre. Currently she’s helping sculpt young minds as an assistant elementary teacher, but her true passions are stage management and talking about that one time she studied abroad. In her free time, Casey carefully curates her Sims 2 families in order to ensure the juiciest possible drama.
Lizard Wrangler/Art Lead
Lexie is a queer, radically feminist artist based in Columbus, Ohio. Her work includes paintings, comics, animation, photography, and physical installations among many other projects. Some of her current projects include collaboration on a mixed-media fantasy novel as well as collaboration on a story-telling project where she uses comics to represent interview experiences of people of color.
MJ Damsen is an illustrator, printmaker, and all-around delightfully disgusting person.
Born and raised in Columbus, they are equipped with a degree in Illustration from the Rhode Island School of Design (Class of 2019). Today you can catch them in their basement making jewelry and comics about gender, studying queer film, and playing Japanese Mafia games.
They like collages, comics, and collecting evidence of bigfoot (for real, ask them to take you to the Mothman bunkers).
They’d also like to issue a formal apology to anyone who they’ve spent hours showing cat pictures to.
