A Seattle 14/48 Veteran, Sam (they/them) isn't acting this year, but excited to join the design team in Hollywood, earning the second finger in the 14/48 fist of creative skills.


My name is Kelly Townsend and I am 27 years old. I am a Fashion Design and Production Major. Currently, I am working as an Assistant Technical Designer for a woman’s clothing brand. I love the arts and fashion, and hope to create my own clothing line in the near future.

A designer with over 25 years experience in making things from trash, scraps, and dreams! 14/48 has been my artistic soul mate for 15 years, as I am a transplant from Seattle. I am thrilled to continue my torrid love affair with the festival in my new home here in Los Angeles!


Ben is an LA native and veteran of 14/48 who is very excited to be bringing this festival to his hometown! He is an award winning actor/puppeteer/creator and a graduate of Cornish College of the Arts. IG:BenHere_BenThere
