People to Watch 2013

Justin McIntosh, Columbus Alive

Columbus is a rad city. The source of its radness is, of course, its people. In other words, you. Duh. But radness exists on a spectrum. Some people are born this way, others thrust it upon themselves to become Gurus of Awesome, and still others have it thrust upon them.

The people featured in this year's People to Watch issue have all earned their awesomeness one way or another - by being particularly inspiring and/or innovative, enriching our culture, raising awareness or simply making our city a more fun, exciting place.

You might know some of them, others maybe not. We hope you get to know them as we have, but something tells us it'll be hard not to.
