Jean Snow

Executive Director, PechaKucha in Tokyo Japan

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.

PechaKucha was in Milan last month (April 2012) for the Milano Salone (Milan Design Week), with a series of four PechaKucha events held at Heineken's temporary club space (designed by up-and-coming creators who were selected through a series of PechaKucha events in four cities). In this presentation, Jean gives you a taste of what the events were like, and slips in a few design week-related slides as well.
