About the City's Organizers

  • Don Kratzer

    A creative director based in Tokyo, he also produces vinyl toys and collaborates with artists through his Fig-lab brand. His latest project is the "Finger Five" series, made up of short vinyl figures that you can place on your fingers. He also helps run the PechaKucha Night series in Tokyo, which is held on the last Wednesday of every month.

  • Jean Snow

    Executive Director of the PechaKucha organization, he also helps run the PechaKucha Night in Tokyo -- please get in touch if you are interested in presenting at a future event. For a more intimate salon-like discussion group, join him at his monthly PauseTalk event. A longtime resident of Tokyo, he lives and breathes design, pop culture, and gaming, sustained by an unhealthy addiction to magazines and frequent visits to his favorites cafes. He has reported on these obsessions for various online/offline publications, including the following: Time, Inside (Australian Design Review), Gizmodo, Gridskipper, Kotaku, 1UP, Tokyo Q, Superfuture, OK Fred, Arthur Frommer's Budget Travel, I.D. (International Design), Metropolis, Azure, MoCo Loco, Kateigaho International Edition, Wired's Game|Life, PingMag, CNNGo, Phaidon, and The Japan Times.

  • Johnny Linnert

    Johnny is always thinking of new ways to help PechaKucha grow -- both online and offline. He manages, edits, and curates content on PechaKucha.org, PechaKucha Global's social networks, and dabbles in IT for both the PechaKucha Global organization and Klein Dytham architecture. He works as a liaison to over 800 PechaKucha City Organizers -- assisting them with licenses, content, and general inquiries. Johnny has also helped to cultivate partnerships with organizations, and develops campaigns to mobilize and leverage the PechaKucha network in new and exciting ways. --------- For PechaKucha's Global Night 2013, in collaboration with Google Japan, he lead the technical production of an 18-hour Global Hangouts event, where the PK founders and team got together with over 75 City Organizers in every timezone to chat about their City, PechaKucha Night, and the Global Night theme "Hidden Heroes". --------- Like many other total dudes from his home of Southern California, he digs design, Mexican food, architecture, tech, and most especially: video games. You can find him scouring Tokyo for killer cheeseburgers, burritos, sushi, and tequila. Righteous. Photo: (c) Michael Holmes
