Bryce Parks

Co-Founder, Publisher & Director of Creative Services

Bryce Parks is an award-winning media designer. He is the creator and publisher of Dubuque365.com and 365ink Magazine. Bryce holds a degree in Communications from the University of Northern Iowa. He served as Communications Coordinator for the Dubuque Community School District and as an adjunct professor for Clarke College.

Over the past decade, many organizations, including the Dubuque Area Chamber of Commerce, Greater Dubuque Development Corporation, City of Dubuque, Mississippi River Museum, The Diamond Jo Casino, and a host of others have turned to Bryce for timely, effective solutions to their digital video, graphic design and web site needs. He played an integral role in the promotional effort for funding America's River Phase 1, the River Valley Initiative, and Dubuque's employee recruitment initiatives.

Bryce is Chairman of the Five Flags Civic Center Commission. He, alongside his brother and 365 co-founder Brad Parks, was honored as an Outstanding Young Iowan in 2004 and Bryce was presented a Life Membership by the Dubuque Jaycees, something that he's very proud of.

Upon the passing of his father, Robert, in February of 2009, Bryce proudly inherited the daunting role of Santa Claus children in the tri-state area as he coordinates the Marine Corps Toys For Tots program in Dubuque, Grant and JoDaviess Counties serving thousands children annually... yes, you can help out.

Bryce is also an accomplished musician, though he prefers the term rock star. You can catch him rockin' out with his band, Boomtangle on the weekends, but mostly he prefers to spend every free moment of his time (what free time?) with his awesome wife, Christy Monk, an architect for FEH Associates. Uh, let's see... he's addicted to audiobooks, he loves bacon and thus is also a master meat smoker and he can juggle. That about covers it.

Comedian  & Movie Star David Koechner

Posted By Bryce Parks on July 21, 2011

You know him from such movies as Anchorman, Waiting..., and Talladega Nights and if you were at the Mississippi Moon Bar on Wednesday, July 20th, you now know him from there too. Playing off many of his famous movie lines early on, he eventually used his life and his family as the basis for a lot of his jokes. Click here for many more photos from the live comedy event at the Mississippi Moon Bar last night including meet and greet photos after the show, although we can't promise that they're feature girls as lovely as these. : )

Posted By Bryce Parks on July 20, 2011

Tweens and cute furry animals. That seems to best sum up the 2011 Asbury Music in the Park based on the photos by photographers Ron & Jennifer Tigges at DigitalDubuque.com who live out in that neck of the woods. Okay, so there was more going on than just that, but you'll see what i mean. You'd think there aren't any old people in the whole town.

Two tri-state soldiers, wounded in action, came home yesterday afternoon. 365 photographer, Dave Haas, who was also among the motorcycle contingent serving as escort to the soldiers, caught the images from the return to share (click here). Cpl. Cody Skahill swore to be home in Dubuque when Iowa Army National Guard soldiers return from Afghanistan later this month. After arriving at the Dubuque Regional Airport to a rousing hero's welcome, he was escorted to his hotel downtown. Sgt. Brian Pfeiler, of Earlville, Iowa, got a motorized escort all the way to his Earlville home, Skahill to his hotel room. Members of waterloo-based 133rd Infantry will arrive at Ft. McCoy, Wisconsin on Monday.
POTD: July 13: Dubuque Jaycees are #1

Posted By Bryce Parks on July 13, 2011

The Dubuque Jaycees had a lot to celebrate at last night's public reception at the Hotel Julien's Riverboat Lounge. The group was recognized as the #1 Jaycee Chapter in America for 2010 and they dominated both areas in which groups are measured; size of the Chapter and quality of programming. So not only does Dubuque have the biggest Chapter around, they also get more done, better than anyone else around. And with 1300 Chapters to compete against, that's nothing to shake a stick at. In this photo, National Award Winner as top local V.P. Jason Fuller, poses with current President, Dustin Baker, who has already made great new strides in 2011 with successes such as landing a $20,000 grant from the DRA to host a whopper of a BBQ Throwdown competition over Labor Day Weekend. Sweet, says Bryce, ... SMOKED MEAT!
