Meet Your Organizers

Your Orange County WordCamp organizing team has been hard at work getting everything ready for the big event.

Meet your WordCamp OC Counselors-in-Training!

David Margowsky

David Margowsky is our lead organizer for WordCamp this year. He’s also the project manager for the high-performing team at SpectrOM Technologies. He’s been working with WordPress for about three years after coming from a background in print. This is David’s first time organizing a WordCamp and we’re lucky to have his organization skills and leadership.

David Arceneaux

David is a full-stack developer at Zeek Interactive, working on WordPress themes, plugins, and mobile development. He started working with WordPress way back when version 2.8 was cool.

Priscilla Christian

Priscilla has been the Empress of Priscilla Christian Graphic Services since 1994. Began building Web projects in 1996 and discovered the wonderfulness of WordPress in 2010. She has filled many roles and worn many hats over the years. This year she is thrilled to be able to serve as the Volunteer organizer on this OC WordCamp 2015 committee. (Hence the hat.)

Brandon Dove

Brandon Dove is a co-founder of Pixel Jar and the lead developer of a commercial plugin, AdSanity. He is the current co-leader of the OC WordPress Developer meetup, and former lead organizer of our illustrious WordCamp Orange County. He’s an active member of the WordPress Community team, and has recently been deputized to help bring more WordCamps to more places for more people.

Dave Mosso

Dave Mosso is a freelance web and graphic designer, and sole proprietor of Spacious Mind Creative Solutions. In 2008, he made the leap into WordPress and has never looked back. Dave digs all manner of out-there music, 70s film, beers with pals and fellow web geeks, and the freedom of being self-employed, largely thanks to WordPress.

Robert Nienhuis

Robert is the founder and principal designer of Nien Studios, where his portfolio has been known to make web professionals weep over its beauty. Robert has been the architect of WordCamp Orange County’s visual identity for the last several years.

Jason Tucker

Jason Tucker is a WordPress web developer that works for a non profit and loves working with audio and video during his brief amount of spare time. Tucker is the host of WPwatercooler, a YouTube webshow and audio podcast featuring a weekly talk with WordPress devs and designers about various topics.

Sarah Wefald

I’m the production manager at Zeek Interactive. When not making WordPress sites myself and enabling the Zeek team to build sites and apps using WordPress, I’m looking after publicity for WordCamp OC and leading the design meetup of the OC WordPress community, or going to too many concerts. Send me a tweet at @ocwordcamp, and like us on Facebook. I’m also @sarahwefald on Twitter.

Steve Zehngut

Steve founded Zeek Interactive in 1995 and he has been the creative technologist behind the Huntington Beach based company since its inception. Under his direction, Zeek has grown from an apartment bedroom to one of Southern California’s leading development and consulting shops. Steve is the organizer of the OC WordPress Meetup and has helped build the community to over 1,200 members. He is a frequent speaker at WordCamps and has taught interactive courses at UC Irvine, USC, the American Film Institute, and Cal State Long Beach. Steve has a BA in Film from Cal State Northridge.

Jeff Zinn

Jeff started web development in the mid 1990s. In 2004 he and Brandon Dove founded Pixel Jar, a custom web development firm specializing in WordPress work. Jeff also co-hosts the monthly Orange County WordPress Developer meetup in Huntington Beach, speaks and volunteers at neighboring WordCamps. When not programming, he spends most of his free time traveling, hiking, camping, surfing, and any other activity where there is no signal.
