Rad Anzulovic designed and hand coded his first website in 1997 and hasn't stopped learning since. Theming in Drupal makes him almost as happy as riding his bike, but gets frustrated when his non-tech friends don't even understand what Drupal theming is. In addition to his strong skills in Drupal and standards based front-end development, he has an extensive background in image editing spanning over two decades. He occasionally gets off his mountain bike to teach Photoshop, Illustrator, and broadcast video design with the Final Cut Studio.
Chris manages video production projects for our nonprofit and public sector clients as well as teaches classes through OMF's education department. His past years of work in commercial photography and videography reinforced his belief that images can tell compelling stories. It also left him wanting to do something that had a chance of making a positive impact in the community he lives in. His time as an AmeriCorps NCCC volunteer and days working with Habitat for Humanity encouraged him to pursue work with the nonprofit sector. One of the changes he wishes to see in the world is the power of the media being put in the hands of the people - and conveniently that happens everyday at Open Media Foundation.
He received his B.A. in Literary Studies from the University of Denver, took coursework at the Art Institute of Colorado, and enjoys enrollment in the school of everyday learning.
Fun fact: Chris loves technology, but not as much as you, you see...but he STILL loves technology...always and forever.

Fundraising Events Manager
'Anything is possible' is a mantra for Heather as her dream to work in Hollywood was accomplished for more then twelve years. From LA Film Festival, AFI FEST to her start as an intern on Stephen King's The Shining filmed in Estes Park and Denver she loved working on all aspects of Production, Post Production and Events. All of the projects she worked on were special but HBO owns much of heart. After watching 'And the Band Played On' she was determined to work there. Starting with "Perversions of Science', the first two season on 'The Sopranos' to six years as the Festival Coordinator on the US Comedy Arts Festival it was a company she worked for the most in her career. But then her volunteer work at the Afghan Women's Mission and Alica Walker's quote, 'Activism is the rent I pay for living on this planet' changed her. Leaving Hollywood due to at the time the impending Writer's Strike she relocated back to Colorado where she went to High School on the mission to work in non-proft. After working as a canvasser for RAAP, Denver's rape crisis center, she would also volunteer to help the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence with their V-Day performance in 2011. Passionate about the power of Independent Media, Human Rights, Violence Against Women, and so many other causes, she is honored to be apart of the OMF family!
