Nate Adams – Events Chair
Nate is a seventeen-year resident of Humboldt county. Hailing from smack dab in the middle of Iowa, he made his way steadily westward over a couple decades. After a brief stint in Denver, he called Taos in the mountains of NM his home for nearly 10 years, where he ran successful tattoo and piercing businesses, promoted and DJed electronic music events, and co-hosted a popular radio show on KTAO. Once he made the move to Eureka, he shifted careers to film after graduating from College of the Redwoods’ Digital Media program. He worked for the Humboldt-Del Norte Film Commission as their Deputy Director assisting all types of productions filming here in the Redwood Region, as well as creating and coordinating the popular Movies in the Park summer screenings in Sequoia Park. He has since moved on and now is the Chief Creative Officer at, one of the oldest internet radio stations. In addition to volunteering his time for community events here at home, he is a Program Director of Burning Man Information Radio (BMIR) in Nevada’s Black Rock desert. Nate brings his technical expertise and passion for film and music to the theater’s Board, as Events Chair, and at theater events, as his way of giving back to the communities he has grown to love.
