As someone who was partially raised by books and television, Lance has always been intrigued by the power of language. He is compelled by stories and discussions that connect people and hopes to create some of his own. Throughout his many jobs and his college career, he strived for bettering his environment and putting everything he had into his work. He hopes to help the EEDC highlight the rich history of Easton to its natives and visitors and keep communication a constructive force. He has a Bachelors in English literature and, like most people of that discipline, an alarming number of books and movies. He is happiest when watching an old movie, reading a graphic novel, or singing badly in an isolated area.
