Scribe on the Move:
From newspapers to environmental nonprofit; SF to Oakland
After serving as the editor-in-chief of the San Francisco Bay Guardian when that venerable progressive publication was suddenly shut down on Oct. 14, 2014, I found myself at a crossroads in my 24-year newspaper career.
While exploring next steps, I launched and directed the crowdfunded Guardian-in-Exile Project, which helped to secure the Guardian's archives and produce a final commemorative edition that celebrated the newspaper's history and discussed its demise.
Now, I'm working as a media specialist at the Center for Biological Diversity, focused on its oceans program. Meanwhile, I'm continuing to develop my writing on a new book project and regular posts on Medium, 48Hills, Byline and other outlets.
So my story has had a few plot twists in recent years, but I'm committed to using my voice and my passion to continue pushing for the environmental, social and economic reforms that the world needs.
