About the City's Organizers

  • Celina Santana Who Writes As Marann Mincey

    I spend my days writing, consulting, philosophizing, loving, travelling, reading, exercising, learning and creating. I like to sing, dance, take pictures and play. I consider myself an explorer in many senses of the word, with a fierce love for family and friends just not a belief that I must live next door to them to express it. I'm an aspiring writer with a day job. I write novels, creative nonfiction essays, feature articles, interviews and the occasional poem. My interest in PechaKucha is around community building: providing a creative, free, event that others can attend, be inspired and aspire to participate in. I am a fan of seeking out free and low cost cultural opportunities my city has to offer and want to create another such offering where folks can gather to share and explore the creative process.

  • Nikki DeBrango-Jensen

    Hi, my name is Nikki DeBrango. I am a recent graduate of Old Dominion University with my degree in Theatre Performance. When I'm not nerd-ing out over films, I can be found doing improv comedy and consuming copious amounts of coffee.

  • John McCarthy

    John lives a life of complementary dualities. He is a reader and writer, a speaker and listener, a teacher and student, a thinker and responder, a cook and eater. Although he hates to admit it, love is tinged with dislike, and procrastination is occasionally interrupted by action. He likes to draw cartoons, which he finds is a good way to manage all the dualities.

  • Rebecca Oribello

    ODU Grad. Works in Advertising. Talks about her dog and cat too much.
