TEDxDayton event. The concept was to showcase the positivity of Dayton – the people, community, events, and small businesses that make Dayton so unique.

You always hear people saying, ‘It’s boring, there’s nothing to do’ – but there’s plenty to do here. Everybody has a phone in their hand, so I figured why not bring what’s happening to them right where they and they’re heading. With almost everyone that has ran the Baton, I’ve learned something new about Dayton, and I’ve been here all my life.”
