Stephen Barnes

Associate Board

A native of St. Louis, Stephen moved to Chicago in 2016 after a two-year adventure living and working in Costa Rica. With a background in college admissions, most recently at Loyola University Chicago, he is now bringing that experience into the tech startup environment at Bluecrew where he is helping blue collar workers find amazing jobs all around Chicago through their innovative on-demand staffing platform. Stephen grew up performing in theatre and choir and passionately believes in the opportunity the arts provide for young people to exercise their self-expression and creativity. When he’s not out and about recruiting workers, he enjoys taking in any and all theatre, reading, traveling, and belting show tunes.
