Conor Bradshaw

Digital Communications Lead

Once upon a time, as a baby-faced teen growing up in Ireland, I learned how to tell stories – here’s mine:

My name is Conor and I have at best, 60-ish years left to live. With that in mind, I spend all of my time at full throttle! I’ve spent the past 3 years living in Seattle, USA – exploring and learning how to produce kick-ass content for Fortune 100 Tech companies. It has been awesome.

Throughout 2021, I’ve backpacked across most of Europe and started Grad School at The University of Washington! I’ve been meeting some incredible people, gaining a deeper sense of perspective and am probably spending too much money on airplane tickets.

Shoot me an email if you’d like a postcard (or, if you have an opportunity in mind)!

Ellie Petersen

Digital Communications Lead

Hi! I am Ellie Petersen, a Photo/Media senior in the School of Art. My interest in art is driven by experiential and layered approaches, discovering new techniques and ways to present them to others is an endless space to explore!

Beyond creative projects, I love trying new things, but you can typically find me paddle boarding, collecting rocks despite not knowing what they are, or stringing up a hammock.

Joy Guo

Graphic Designer

Joy is a Visual Communication Design senior who enjoys graphic design, illustration, and creative writing.




Pallavi Banerjee

Outreach Coordinator

Hi, I am Pallavi, a graduate student at the iSchool. A little about me: I am from Calcutta, India. I adore animals and binge watching Netflix. Other than this, you’ll probably find me spending my time trying to recreate some good old Indian recipes!


Punya Shetty

Web Management Lead

I am Punya Shetty. A curly-headed human from Bangalore, India. I am currently pursuing a 2-year Early Career MSIM program from the iSchool with a specialization in Data Science. I am originally from Mangalore but have moved around quite a bit. (Fun fact: I have changed a total of 7 schools and this has made me super adaptable).
Travel and food are the 2 things that get me uber excited. I don’t discriminate between beaches and mountains. Love them both dearly <3

I am passionate about trekking and running. I hope to run a full marathon in this lifetime. (Managed to complete 21K until now)

My favorite hobby is binge-watching TV shows, and I love meeting new people.
