I'm Claire, a new member of the BROS board. I've been a fan of BROS since I walked through a balloon colon and into the Hallowiener Sphinctacular in 2013. My fiance, Corey Tappan, has been in the band for a few BROS shows and has introduced me to the amazing community that creates these shows. It's an honor to join the ranks in my own small way as a board member. I am a lawyer by day, asleep by night and making cheesy jokes all the time. I'm excited to apply my legal skills/knowledge of the dark arts to BROS' benefit!
