John Armstrong ( Co- Executive Director)
Danielle is also a Native of La Puente and is a Music Industries Studies student. She is a product of Cal Poly Pomona. Her studies have taken her into the Arts licensing field. She has the privilege of working with artists to insure their Pop art falls within legal guidelines. She has worked with Marvel, Disney and many other major pop art entities. Her love for the arts has created a passion for the Star Theatre. Which she feels is an Architectural work of Art within itself. In connection with that work of Art she has volunteered extensively in the past with her local Historical Society. She has also volunteered on set for several production companies. Her "education, experience and love" for working in the arts field will be a strong addition to the the Board of Directors. Her "passion" for the arts, history and her community will help unearth and bring attention to a local piece of art that has been covered with time.
'My current passion project as was my Thesis in college was the Star Theater. So definitely saving the Star and unearthing that local work of Art is something I will closely be involved with as Secretary of Arteologists"
John Armstrong has a long history within Sales/operations management and planning with close to 2 decades of experience in that area. As with most in his younger years had a passion for writing and drawing. But like with many was lost with daily life. One choice in career path took him into a Sales/Operations position within IKEA. The visual aspect and planning of IKEA interior design sparked that artistic side again which led to many successes in that adventure. Meeting his spouse who is an artist also fostered his love of the arts in a new found way. This led to one of his business investments which was a Coffee house. This coffee house housed art and was the launching place of the La Puente artwalk. Seeing and meeting many new artists and so many faces in the community who just wanted to show there art and have a place to be inspired prompted him to look for ways to help his community and local artists bring that to the forefront. His mind is naturally conditioned to be sales and operationally driven. He feels that sales & operations conditioning coupled with his love for the arts and community can be a huge positive to many and the Arteologists Non Profit Organization
"Growing up in the city of La Puente as a youth, I would have loved to see an organization like Arteologists focused on the arts and helping the community."

Dr. Edward Lucis Moisa (Co-Executive Director)
Robert has many years in Logistics Management. But his real passion if for Literature and film. This passion has led him to work with his wife in filming and editing her school plays. He trains and mentors the students to act, film, write and edit their podcast He also coordinates the building of sets, the organizing of lighting and sound and all backstage functions of a school play. Over the several years of doing this the students as well as the teachers have become a strong force for the Arts within their school.
"Working with the students and seeing them accomplish such an elaborate play and podcast has really helped me enjoy this side of Stage direction and filming. I think taking another step with Arteologists will further that enjoyment and help me as well as students and new artists express themselves within the organization.
