To help us continue to grow our team and keep events like IngenuityFest low-cost, consider making an end-of-year donation!

Ingenuity relies on a team of contractors, volunteers, and Ingeneers to create events like IngenuityFest, and keep our warehouse space functioning year-round. We wanted to introduce you to one of our crew, our site manager, José!

He’s a jack-of-all-trades who can fix a plumbing leak and then go on to paint a beautiful piece. His background is vast, and his energy contagious.

“At times when I have been asked where I’m from, I tell them I’m “A World Citizen” because I don’t have an easy/short answer. I’ve been so many places in my life and all have been a world apart from each other, so to speak. But I learned from all of them. Now I’m here at Cleveland enjoying being one part of what Ingenuity is accomplishing.

Marcus Aurelius said: ‘The object of life is not to be on the side of the majority, but to escape finding oneself in the ranks of the insane.’ In other words, one of the points of life is to be a free thinker, and Ingenuity Cleveland has many of these people. Why wouldn’t I hang out here, right?

There are many other reasons why Ingenuity is important to me but it would be a long list, haha.”
