Erick Boustead

Erick Boustead | erick@linebreakmedia.org Born and raised in the Northwoods of the land currently known as Wisconsin, Erick cut his cultural organizing teeth working with artists, local businesses, musicians and his peers to build a skatepark in their town. Fueled by formative punk albums such as “How to Clean Everything” and “A Comprehensive Guide to Moderne Rebellion”, Erick set off challenging master cultural narratives before he even understood strategic communications to be a thing. Erick’s role with Line Break is primarily working with clients to establish a vision, goals and strategy for projects, and he is also currently immersed in workshopping visionary fiction narratives to be adapted for video.

At Line Break, Nolan focuses on the production and technical side of operations, working tirelessly to make sure we’re making the best use of available technology to build a better world with our partners.  So, talk to him about social justice, talk to him about cinematography, and if you really want to get him talking, talk to him about pastries.
