Root is supported by the George Kaiser Family Foundation and staffed by two Tulsans, Matt Carney and Kyra Bruce.
Matt is into sci-fi novels, collecting vinyl and basketball. He grew up in Tulsa and moved back home to start Root and his family at about the same time. You can find him at [email protected] or handing out beer to cyclists every summmer at Tulsa Tough.
Kyra is a born-and-raised Tulsan and a graduate of Oklahoma State University. She's an avid sewer and fan of the local music scene. You can contact her at [email protected] or by asking around at the next show.
Bea Carrington wrote, photographed and diligently scouted much of the content that still exists on our ever-updating website before she went on to work for the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre Centennial Commission.
Mason Powell is Root's former intern and Content Associate. He is an enrolled member of the Osage Nation. He grew up in small town Oklahoma, and graduated from the University of Tulsa.
