About the speaker
The power of community lies in the people who create it. Bob Devin Jones has played the role of both observer and creator in our community. After seeing what groups of creative people can accomplish together, he asks us, “How can we do more? How can we make our community even better? Stronger? More inclusive? What is the oral, visual, and physical language we can create together to foster our beloved community?”
Originally from Los Angeles, Bob Devin Jones has been an active St. Pete resident for the past twenty-one years, helping foster and shape the community, earning him the title of unofficial mayor of St. Pete. He has worked as an actor, director, playwright, and community leader, participating in many educational and cultural organizations and founding the Studio @620, where “the answer is always yes.”
Roundhouse is a creative production studio rooted in video, motion graphics, and powerful storytelling. From their self-sustaining net-zero studio in sunny St. Pete, they provide clients from coast to coast with stories that evoke emotion and inspire action. As the CreativeMornings/SP headquarters and A/V partner, the studio provides monthly support to the chapter’s ongoing operation.
Located in downtown St. Pete, Station House is dedicated to providing a comfortable, yet dynamic environment in which guests can interact socially or professionally, work or co-work quietly, enjoy food, drinks and entertainment, and relax peacefully. Station House strives to create a cozy, yet progressive and hip epicenter for businesses and entrepreneurs from all walks of life by creating a communal environment and setting a standard of service that exceeds the expectations of their guests.

TeBella Tea is a loose leaf tea retailer with three locations in the Tampa Bay Area: their original shop on Davis Islands, TeBella at Oxford Exchange, and TeBella at Station House. TeBella Tea offers a thoughtfully sourced loose tea collection with a heaping helping of tea education. They work directly with tea gardens and estates that use sustainable, fair-trade practices, and donate their used tea leaves to local community gardens for composting.
Food waste isn’t garbage, it’s simply misplaced resources. On a mission to make Tampa Bay a more sustainable community, Suncoast Compost offers residential, business, and event composting services and solutions across the Tampa Bay area. Turning food you don’t want into food you do want, Suncoast Compost does this dirty, yet important work so you don’t have to.
