Wes joined Urban Gateways as part of the Finance & Administration department in 2018.

Apart from assisting with film and event production and exhibition, he is a part-time dogwalker on the south side of Chicago–where he lives with his dog, Baron. He also enjoys researching conservation, tribal advocacy, and ethical consumerism.
