Ottawa Tonite is the brainchild of Cheryl Gain, an Ottawa gal who is passionate about all things arts and culture. Cheryl realized there was a significant lack of arts and culture info about her beloved city and struck out to do something about it.
Her vision is to create a community space where local artists can talk about what’s really going on behind the scenes of their craft and bring a glimpse of their lives to their audiences.
There’s been a TONNE of people involved in the creation of this site over the past several months. Here are just a few who have given their time to make it all possible:
Susan Murphy: partner in crime, moral support, wine pourer and technical hack.
Rob Dupuis: graphic design guru, coffee shop seat saver, owner of the coolest laptop case in the world.
Dave Samojlenko: Web site slicer and dicer, resident foodie, music and film nut.
Patrick Denny: PHP guru, web site rescuer, all around great guy.
Steve Donnelly: Web developer extraordinaire and “stand up” guy!
Mike Thompson: Video guy extraordinaire, chief cook and bottle washer, Mr. Green Screen.
And of course, all our amazing, incredible contributors who pour their heart and soul into their passions and then so generously share it with us here.
