ABOUT THE CURATOR Badger Volunteers

Jordan Rumsey

I have lived and worked in Greenville for a few years now and it's incredible to see how much it has all grown! The best part of the city is that people invest in the culture - starting small businesses, creating bike lanes, and shopping local! I can show you which restaurants allow dogs out on the patio while you have brunch or beer as well as some great farm-to-table spots to grab a bite! I am very passionate about exploring and giving back to my community because I love it here!
