is the pen name of Andrew Coles, a multi-disciplinary artist, activist, manager, producer, and curator + DJ. He currently serves as the Founder & CEO of The Mission Entertainment, a storytelling company whose purpose and philosophical foundation lies in serving as advocates for storytellers that have been traditionally overlooked, undervalued and underrepresented. - those who identify as others. Those who have walked into a room and been 1-of-1, and know what it feels like to fight for the true depth and breadth of their humanity – however that otherness is defined – by virtue of gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, socio-economic background, religious orientation, and so on.
Come as you are – be empowered – be liberated.

healer, storyteller + reiki master teacher
Julia is a lover of people and stories, and those two things are at the core of her wellness work.

Julia is a Reiki Master Healer and Teacher, Integrated Energy Therapy Practitioner, and Meditation guide. She is passionate about bringing wellness and mindfulness tools to people in a grounded way, and seeks to weave whimsy, art, and wonder into her life and the lives of her clients and students.
Julia's hope for The Mystic Rebel is to create a space where people can do life together in a meaningful way. No fuss, no pressure, deep community.
