Jomar Manzano is an engineer-in-training working at Tetra Tech inc. A structural engineer by trade, his interests instead lie in transportation engineering: urban design, pedestrian and bike facilities, and transit. 

His spare time is spent cooking great food, jogging, playing video games, and in his role as co-chair of the DCRA: yammering on about "urban living" with anyone willing to listen

Talking to Yourself

@ VOL 16 ON DEC 05, 2013

Artist-of-all-sorts Ray Fenwick speaks to a crowd and to you (if you listen) about talking to one's self. He points out the fact that our voice is a huge part of our identity, but in many cases we don't acknowledge that it is the embodiment of our thoughts while still remaining a function of our body. Because our voice is at the crossroads of our psychological and physiological being, it can be surreal and disconcerting to practice, but Ray encourages us all to see what comes out!

Getting Down and Derby

@ VOL 16 ON DEC 05, 2013

Alex Krosney went to her first roller derby bout in April of 2011 – it was love at first whistle. A year of blood, sweat, tears, and track burn later Lex Go was born. A member of the Winnipeg Roller Derby League, Lex is now a skater on the All-Stars travel team and a captain of the home team that wins all of the afterparties, the Valkyries’ Wrath. She is also a trainer for the league and for the WRDL’s Junior league, which makes her Grinchy heart grow three full sizes every Sunday.
