Director of Member Relations
San Diego Made was started in 2014 by Brittany Kaszas, Brook Dailey, Kristin Dinnis and Sarah Anderson, four local creative business owners. The four women were all operating their own independent, creative businesses out of a warehouse called UNION in Barrio Logan, and they found themselves talking in the common space one day about the lack of public visibility of and coming together by the local artist and maker community in San Diego. They wanted to see more events, opportunities, and public engagement in the San Diego creative scene and decided to start San Diego Made as an organization that would help facilitate that while building a network of local creative members.
After years of putting on local events and building an online network of San Diego creatives, the four founders embarked on the fulfillment of a long-held dream—building the San Diego Made Factory! With our new space now open at 2031 Commercial Street in Logan Heights, we hope to be able to expand our team in the near future and offer more employment opportunities. Until then, we invite you to get involved as a member, or as a volunteer at one of our events!
