Andrew Kelly

Chief Parade Officer

Tenure:

Been with Silicon Valley Pride: two years. 

Board member: since May, 2020

Why I Volunteer:

This is my second year being involved with Silicon Valley Pride. I volunteer because I want to contribute to my community and embrace the differences we have to bring us together. I want to see more involvement, more fun and more representation - it starts with getting out there and getting active!

About Me:

Originally I am from NYC. I was brought up and educated in public K-12 in the Campbell area, the south bay is my home. Post college I have worked professionally in broadcast journalism, human resources management and am currently working in program management focused on entertainment technology product trials. 

 

Ask Me About:

I am an absolute animal lover! If I am not at work, I am probably with my Dachshund, "Tulip". I am an arts & entertainment fanatic. I love to sing and be silly! I enjoy finding new places / adventures to take the dog out and I love swimming for exercise. 

 

My Hopes:

I want to see SV Pride become an even more extraordinary annual parade / festival, but also host a multitude of ongoing events all year long. I dream to see our parade become an immersive, cannot miss spectacle! I hope that Silicon Valley Pride can set an ongoing and growing example of diversity for the world. My wish is to inspire and elevate the celebration of  our global community.
