Hello! I’ve lived in Wichita most of my life and work in technology at Koch Industries. When I'm not working, I enjoy reading, cooking, working out, golfing and enjoying wine or beer at one of my favorite local spots. I'm an active volunteer for W, a community of young professionals in Wichita, and love to attend localtech conferences. I am ready to help you find your place in Wichita!

Jason Toevs

I grew up just outside of Wichita and quickly realized a passion for technology and business. My wife and I have traveled the world as digital nomads and happily planted ourselves in Wichita. I am passionate about building the local tech startup ecosystem, helping entrepreneurs find their global impact from right here in Kansas. I am co-founder and CTO of Quicc and one of the founders behind Shift ICT, a conference to bring locals interested in disruptive technologies together. Let's talk!

Jocelyn Galicia

Hello! I grew up in Wichita and graduated from Wichita State University. In 2016, I started a business called 2UAUTO. We deliver auto cleaning to wherever your car is parked. I manage my business full time, am very involved in the entrepreneurship community and enjoy living downtown. My favorite events to attend are Startup Grind, One Million Cups and events by W / A Community of Young Professionals. In my free time, I like to take walks along the Arkansas River, play board games at Sente Games and Refreshments and visit the breweries in Old Town. Let's connect!

Todd Lewis

Having been in Wichita for almost 20 years, there's no other city where I'd rather live and work. My wife and I have two beautiful boys who attend school in the Wichita school district, USD 259. Most weekends you’ll find us at the Great Plains Nature Center on one of its nature trails or having breakfast at Livingston’s Café, a locally-owned diner in College Hill. I passionately promote local business leaders’ engagement with the region's non-profit community through Connecting ICT, a group I helped launch a few years ago. Let's connect!
