I loved being involved in Ogden’s UnCon this year. The first-ever convention, held at the Ogden Eccles Convention Center, brought in celebrity guests and creative panels and workshops to Ogden and focused on local innovators and diverse arts and artists. I especially loved the cosplay competition and awards ceremony where Ogden Mayor Mike Caldwell donned a custom hero suit designed by Russ Adams – professional movie fabricator and Ogden UnCon’s founder. Russ is a good friend of ours and has been an especially kind mentor to our daughter Mattie since she was 13 years old!!

“You engage with every medium of art on at least some level by attending the events,” Russ said about the convention. “We’ve made sure there are panels and contests at UnCon that cater to creatives and inspire every attendee to contribute to the media they love.” It was an awesome three days and I’m looking forward to next year!

ky & kannah


Ky & Hannah, our son and daughter-in-law. I remember when they were first dating, they jokingly said their “couple name” was Kyannah. Would they, will they, name a little girl this name? I guess we won’t know for awhile, since they are having a boy, and his name is … Ryker.
