Kayte was born and raised in Maine, founded and developed Mass Musings in Boston, moved to Los Angeles for a year of creative inspiration and now lives in Denver. After graduating from Gettysburg College with a degree in English and Studio Art, she created Mass Musings as a central place of inspiration for creative individuals. Since it's inception, Kayte has focused on creating quality content and genuine connections with a strong emphasis on lifestyle and music. Through her writing and photography, she has been able to connect her audience with some of the most well-respected, international brands and artists. Kayte is a proven community leader and teacher, having taught several classes through General Assembly and consulting on the launch of various start-up movements. When she's not collaborating on events or content creation, Kayte can be found tearing up a dance floor or frolicking through nature with her dog Lucy.
Leanne is a jack-of-all-trades who was born and raised in Massachusetts and now lives in Denver, CO. Music has been Leanne's number one priority in life since age five, when she started piano lessons. This was followed by cello, guitar, and finally percussion/drums, which was her primary focus in college. She attended York College of Pennsylvania and studied Music Industry & Recording Technology. After graduating, Leanne dove head first into the music industry and has spent the past six years learning as much as possible. Leanne loves many different artists and genres, but as long as it grooves, she's in (she's a huge sucker for basslines that make your face scrunch up). She is eager to grab the bull by the horns and finally, "officially," bring her passion and motivation to the blogging world. When she isn't coordinating and organizing the chaos around her, you can usually find Leanne at a show or festival, on Cape Cod spending time with her family, playing with Kayte's dog Lucy or eating massive amounts of candy.
