Amber Blais

Curator OF THE FANTASTICAL AND PERFORMING ARTS

Amber’s second home is within the walls of Invisible City. This fantastical place has fostered her creativity and ignited her soul. With over 15 years of marketing, event planning and graphic design experience, she is thrilled to be able to make magic as part of the curators at Invisible City.

In her free time, Amber is the Producing Director for Rainbow Militia and is working to create an immersive production fueled by circus, live music and interactive sets. Her dreams of one day growing wings and learning how to fly are well on their way as she has been practicing the aerial arts for a over 7 years, with fabric as her favorite apparatus. She has performed all over the front range but thrives when she is able to perform with live musicians. One of her favorite collaborations was with Chimney Choir at the Levitt Pavilion in a space themed circus extravaganza.

In addition to her love of circus, she is also the Co-Curator of Raconteur Denver which was voted Denver Westword’s Best New Storytelling Event.

andi todaro

Maker of Magical creations

Andi Todaro is a versatile, multi-disciplinary, craftsman and award-winning creative professional, best known for their broad scale and range of practical and impractical knowledge and eccentric dress. Todaro pursues an ever-evolving skill set, fueled by perpetual desire for self-astonishment, be it mastery of a new computer program, mechanical know-how, scale, or experimental process.

Todaro’s unique aptitude for absorbing, processing and implementing new knowledge is the eddy in which deep emotional expression and the inherent compulsion to be productive takes root. Digesting chaos through a dream and metaphysical practice allows for a unique style of integration and deeper understanding of multiple interests in commercial art design, science, geometry, philosophy, astrology, mathematics, game theory, aesthetics, semiotics, social science and linguistics.

Todaro does 3 crosswords a day, and plays lots of video games.

danny newman

Wizard behind the curtain

At a young age, Danny was walking with his parents down crime alley when a shocking twist of fate happened. He decided to become a start up startup mogul in Denver with two missions in mind, to be rad and help preserve the weird of Denver. 

Since returning from a 5 year stint traveling the world, Danny has found time to help preserve multiple spaces in Denver, start a few digital companies, and help become a myth at Invisible City. It has been noted that neither Batman nor Danny has ever been seen in the same room.  

For now, he will remain an enigma wrapped in a dad joke wrapped in bacon (because everything is better with bacon)

Edwin Sandoval

MASTER OF THE CULINARY EXPERIENCE

Honduras-born and Colorado-raised, chef Sandoval has spent the last 13 years moving through the ranks of professional kitchens. As a teen he started out as a humble commis in the westside of Colorado Springs, working his way up in brigades ranging from restaurants to 4 diamond rated country clubs. 

In 2012 armed with a culinary arts degree along with over 5 years of cooking experience, chef Sandoval made his move to Denver where he held sous chef positions at Le grand bistro & Oyster bar, Spuntino and Beatrice & Woodsley. At age 23 Sandoval was brought on to open the Argyll whiskey beer as Chef de Cuisine.  He also held the executive chef position at Telegraph bistro before moving to his most recent projects.

Chef enjoys to connect and give back to the Latino community as much as possible. 

James Lopez

DIGITAL SOOTHSAYER AND Practicioner of the LEGEDERAMain

James is not your everyday marketer. He has a diverse background running everything from radio stations to large scale non-profits. 

His passion though, lies in perfecting his skills of sleight of hand and storytelling. As a magician, James spends most of his nights carousing around Denver being invited to swallow needles, host cabaret shows, telling stories and generally helping keep audiences entertained. He found his family at Invisible City through happenstance and coincidence attending events and occasionally performing until he was invited to perform with Rainbow Militia and become one of the go-to entertainers for Invisible City signature events. 

Jeff jones

DOCUMENTARIAN OF LATE NIGHTS AND GOOD MOODS

Once likened to that of wasabi, Jeff Jones packs an unassuming punch.  As a photographer and creative, Jeff builds captivating visual stories and brands by capturing images that inspire awe and evoke the emotions of the present moment, making us feel in touch with something greater than ourselves. His superpower is capturing the essence of characters that show up for a good time, helping people feel comfortable to peel back the layers of mystery and disguise and show their true beauty.  

Beyond photography, Jeff believes that a healthy sense of adventure adds value to all aspects of life.  Whether climbing, hiking, traveling, dancing, or socializing, you’ll usually find him wearing an awe-filled smile…and most likely a costume.  

Kate Wilkonson

Curator of the Curious

They say the happiest people have the most community. Though not sure who “they” are, Kate agrees with this in it’s entirety. A Denver native and classically-trained jewelry designer by trade, she focuses on custom pieces, ones with story and soul inside them. Though tremendous passion lies there, it’s a solitary life and by itself doesn’t complete Kate’s passion for connection and building community. She’s a traveler and a creative with a wild spirit. Finding the connections, the conversations, and the patterns in living makes her feel most alive. She’s excited to help you tell your stories, and of course, for all of us to make new ones.

Nicholas is a musician and performing artist originally reigning from the swamps of Florida now currently residing within the walls of Invisible City. Wielding an accordion he has wandered through the cities of distant lands, enchanting all of those he encounters. An expedition west brought him to become the minstrel of Invisible City, casting song spells upon the house at night, whispering to the ghosts of caretakers passed, and caring for what lies in the shadows. As part of his focus beyond performance while in residence at Invisible City, Nicholas tends to the A/V needs of our collaborators, constantly untangles wires, and facilitates in the creation of experiences that are moving, engaging, and intentional. 

Paul Laurie

Collector and HEAD Curator of Experience

He has slept on the floors of temples and worked as a photographer in New York City, shooting movie premiers and backstage at Fashion Week. He counts a collection of antique travel bars among his prized possessions.

Ten years ago, Paul’s desire to share his passion for travel led him to start Walking Tree Travel whose focus is to take high school students on culturally engaging programs worldwide.

Paul is also the moving spirit behind Silver Spork Social, an intimate pop-up supper club borne of his desire to bring people together that share in a sense of adventure.Invisible City is an extension of that vision.

Paul approaches every event with an exquisite eye and boundless creativity, guided by the belief that every moment has the potential to be the best of our lives.
