It’s little old me, Jeff Hnilicka. You may remember me from such favorites as “Press 4 to be connected to the box office”, “You are caller number 5”, or my personal favorite, “Tickets to the British Television Advertising Awards are SOLD OUT”. That’s right, I’ve dutifully served as the Voice of the Walker on the phone recording and worked in Visitor Services for the past five years, but have since re-located to New York. Miss my cheery disposition and boyish charm at the front desk since my departure (see below)? No worries. With my virtual voice, I’ll be blogging with updates on new projects from performing artists featured at the Walker and other exciting work I see in New York.
A bit of the biographical info: Born ‘n’ raised in Milwaukee, before coming to the U of M where I earned my BA in Theater Arts. I worked in Visitor Services at Walker for 5 wonderful years, with a brief stint at MASS MoCA. Helped start the radical political action/art collective/party planner organization The Revolting Queers. I have also worked with Minnesota Public Radio, Soo Visual Arts Center, and mnartists.org I currently work as Company Manager for J Mandle Performance and reside in the Bushwick neighborhood of Brooklyn.
Miss you much.
