The Team

Denver Open Media is a constituent-led community media organization where the producer-members and viewers have as much ownership over the operation as anyone. Thus, DOM has no "staff," but is a project, facilitated by the staff of a separate nonprofit organization, the Open Media Foundation.

That said, these are the faces to know if you need any help or answers to any questions.


Jameson Courville - Station Director

"The Purpose of My Life is to use my adventurousness, creativity, dedication, and empathy to empower those who lack the means to tell their stories

By

Creating Media
Laughing with Others
And Globetrotting

To Create a World in which everyone receives equitable opportunities to succeed; where open and compassionate minds resolve differences; and where our stories bind us to one another."

Jameson graduated from Colorado Film School and Cornell College with degrees in Screenwriting and Creative Writing and has experience in television and film production. He is an avid traveler and has driven to Alaska from Colorado, toured the European continent, and personally visited Yellowstone National Park at least 27 times over the last ten years.


Leslie Welch - Community Media Coordinator

"The Purpose of My Life is to use my curiosity, drive, passion, and resilience

By

  • Getting to the heart of an issue
  • Analyzing systems
  • Taking the time to listen
  • Being open to new people, cultures, and experiences

To create a world in which people have the ability to better understand the world. A place where people would be able to access knowledge and resources, regardless of societal barriers."

Leslie graduated with a BA in Arts & Humanities from the Residential College of Arts and Humanities at Michigan State University, as well as a degree in public policy (Go Green!). Leslie’s experience is at the intersection of civic engagement, social justice, public policy, and media/technology. At OMF, she hopes to bring technology to the people, particularly to those who don’t normally have access.  She can usually be found with a coffee tumbler in hand.


Joslyn Dorrelle - AmeriCorps VISTA

"The purpose of my life is to gain a wealth of knowledge and use wisdom acquired over time to empower and educate people around the globe.

By

Sharing stories through various media
Fostering meaningful relationships with communities outside my local and personal sphere
Enjoying every moment

To create a world where understanding is achieved, the community is appreciated, and accountability means something to everyone."

Joslyn graduated with a degree in Journalism and Communications from Wayne State University in Detroit, MI and is currently pursuing Masters in Nonprofit Management from Johnson & Wales University. Though Joslyn is a Denver native, she has produced content for Greeley Unexpected, WDIV News 4 Detroit, WCOV FOX 20 Montgomery, Alabama Public Television, among others. Joslyn hopes to help build capacity for the voiceless in low income and minority communities by equipping them with the essential tools needed to obtain journalism careers in large markets.
 


Jesse Lockwood - Member Support

"The purpose of my life is to expand my sense of joy and expression of unconditional love in all activities.

By

Showing compassion with patience and humility
Seeking opportunities to learn
Maintaining my personal well being
Accepting apparent reality without expectation

To create a world in which all people are free to have their own experience and expression while respecting the wellbeing of others."
