Lynn Tejada (née Hasty):
For over 20 years, Green Galactic Founder Lynn Tejada has been the go-to publicist in Los Angeles for alternative art and culture producers, representing clients on a local, regional, national, and international scale. Growing up in the suburbs of Detroit, Tejada, an avid music and movie fan, created the firm on the foundation of electronic music/DJ culture. First with Green House Record Pool, in 1993, she helped record labels disburse and promote their house and techno 12” vinyl records to the top DJs on the West Coast. Then, the following year, in 1994, she become a partner in Public Space, a “live ambient” club that would grow into a long-running home for live experimental electronic music concerts at various venues in and around Hollywood, CA.
Since then, her promotional focus and client base has grown to include all things of interest to her including music beyond electronic, theatre, art, film, restaurants, dance, fashion, books, and more. Tejada has a BS in Television Production from Ferris State University in Michigan. Prior to forming GG, she worked as an Assistant Producer for retail accounts with ad agency McCann-Erickson in Detroit, as well as Business Manager of the Los Angeles branch of Fleet Street, a San Francisco-based post-production facility. Tejada is also drawn to helping charities and nonprofit clients – she currently sits on the board of Linda Carmella Sibio’s Bezerk Productions. She is also on the Honorary Board of Flea’s Silverlake Conservatory of Music and sat on the board of humanitarian nonprofit NextAid.
A marketing professional and project manager for over 20 years, Charlene Boehne has worked in both the non-profit and corporate for-profit worlds. She joined Green Galactic in 2009, primarily as a marketing consultant and writer. Prior to that, she worked for seven years for media arts nonprofit LA Freewaves and nine years with Fortune 500 McKesson Corporation. She first met Tejada through Freewaves, where the pair collaborated together on the organization’s marketing and publicity efforts between 2002 and 2008. While at Freewaves, Boehne was responsible for marketing, website project management/content development, event planning, the media art festival open call, and online curation process. Prior to her work with Freewaves, she held marketing planning, strategic planning, and business development project management positions at McKesson in San Francisco. With a strong interest in facilitating organizational transformation, Boehne has a particular strength in breaking down complex problems and projects into actionable plans.
At the USC School of Cinematic Arts, she worked as a freelance project manager for one year, planning and executing a DIY video festival and academic conference. She has produced art exhibits, training sessions, lectures, workshops, parties, and festival events. Over the years, Boehne has also worked as a freelance writer for media outlets, creative individuals, and a variety of organizations. On a pro bono basis, she has provided marketing support to emerging organizations such as community creative space HM157 (Lincoln Heights, CA), Urban Dinner Socials (Atwater, CA), the Whittier Time Bank, and Linda Carmella Sibio’s Bezerk Productions (Joshua Tree, CA). Boehne’s experience, combined with her B.A. in Journalism from San Francisco State University and MFA in New Genres from UC Santa Barbara’s Studio Art Department, give her a rare combination of skills and conceptual understanding to market creative cultural organizations. A bit of a mysterious creature, she lives and works in the middle of nowhere, down a sandy road, in the Mojave Desert near Joshua Tree, CA. She is in the process of creating an International Museum of Dog Art in her living room.
