Hi, I'm Bruiser. With new changes to our event this year also comes new changes to our lead duties. This year I am stepping up to take over the amazing work that Nurse has been doing for the past 18 years. I have been involved with decomp for 8 years and have taken charge of many roles so I am extra excited to step into this major lead position and continue to make our event as magical as ever. On top of being the event lead, I also run a theme camp that will be attending both the regional and decompression. I am loud and lovable.

favorite principal: PARTICIPATION!

Other duties will be hauling equipment to the event, posting signage, distribution of barrels and wood, and erecting Center Camp at the event, etc.

I will be the lead of the brand new pathlighters department bringing light to our regional. We will be also heading up the wayfinding department crafting street and informational signs. You will usually find me at greeters or kid camp partyin it up! I cannot wait for us to create something beautiful! I will need a lot of volunteers to get pathlighters off the ground so get in touch however works best for you! All my contact information is above this bio.

Nick Kraft

Greeter Lead

Nick first came to decomp in 2015. An instant fan, Nick was drawn to the ten principals. Especially inclusion, self expression, and self reliance. Wanting to be helpful and involved, Nick jumped right in, helped set up the man, and (unofficially) greeted his first year. Nick left feeling accepted, confidant, and ready to face the "real world" with a whole new perspective on life.

Realizing the impact it had in his own life, Nick decided he wanted to become more involved, and wanted others to be able to experience deCOMP at it best... And what better way to set the tone than greeting? As a greeter you get to be one of people's first experiences! Fun costumes, bright colors, tons of hugs, and the occasional consensual spanking... deCOMP virgin or seasoned vet, Nick is here to help you find a place as a greeter! Nick can usually be found wandering around the Meadow before most people wake up, or volunteering as a greater, in hot pink fishnets, glitter, and too much gold spandex!


Hi my name is Nick I've been part of the burner Community for 8 years helping with projects for local events and other regionals. I'm part of D.P.W and staff kitchen, and sound.


Let's talk about how much we love burning man events! Hi I've been going to regional burns for 3 years now and idaho decompression was my first introduction to the burner community in 2017.  I have to say boy was it a eye opener! I've only grown to love the burner community more and more. 2019 was my first burn and it was one of the best experiences of my life! I'm a  gate  lead and try to volunteer where ever else I'm needed.  I've have grown and made life long friends in our amazing community!

Connie "just Connie"

Treasurer, Idaho Burners Alliance

Connie is the money honey who takes your cash and turns it into gold, or toilet paper, which is actually more valuable than gold. Having been in the Burner scene for 10 years, she has nearly perfected the arts of cat herding and union breaks.

Because her hands are in everything, Connie can probably answer any question you might have about DeCOMP operations, or she will find the answer for you.

Connie is a big believer in Do-ocracy and the Ten Principles of Burning Man. Her role is mostly singular but if you are particularly fond of spreadsheets and have crazy organization and follow through skills, she may have a job for you.
