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.

A Hero's Welcome... X 2!

Posted By Bryce Parks on July 13, 2011

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!

POTD: July 10, 2011

Posted By Bryce Parks on July 10, 2011

Today's Photo of the Day is from the Dubuque Jaycees river outing to Nine Mile Island on the Mississippi River. It just so happens that everyone at 365 young enough to be so, is a Jaycee. So we went along for the fun. Click here for a few photos of the trip on 365 Publisher Bryce Parks' Facebook Page.

Just cause it's Sunday doesn't mean the weekend it over. Mud Lake Bluegrass, Music in the Park and Music in Jackson Park are all on the docket for today. Get out there, Dubuqueland, and enjoy some music on this beautiful Sunday!
POTD: July 8, 2011, Country Club Fireworks

Posted By Bryce Parks on July 08, 2011

Hopefully by now you've realized that POTD mean Photo of the Day. If not, now you do! Today's Photo of the Day is a real hole-in-one. Gen. Bob Felderman got a few photos from the fun at Dubuque Golf and Country Club leading up to their annual 4th of July Firework's display. Obviously, parachuters landing on the 18th green was part of that fun. Personally, I'm only allowed in the Country Club for 15 minutes a year on Caddy-Day at the pool (Though the pond would be fine for this Cinderella story, comin' outta nowhere...). 
More than a bird, more than a plane, it's a car-plane!

Posted By Bryce Parks on July 08, 2011

The Terrafugia Transition is a $194 thousand dollar street-legal car that can turn into a plane! It just got Federal Aviation Administration approval for use in the US. Whee! People will be flying into shit before you know it. Get ready for the next 365 mobile. We think it's wacky and thought you'd like it too.
