sociologist and campaigner
"from where do you draw your power?"
I believe in freedom through co-ops and toolkits. Prize competitions and maybe-not-so-crazy outsiders fascinate me. With CoFED.coop, I spent several years organizing a movement with an "acquired taste" for food justice. Our program trains and networks student-led food co-ops across the country. Now with GlobalLives.org, I'm directing a campaign to support teachers around the world to use our open-source video library of global life experiences. From these and other projects, my specialties are ethnography (the art and science of storytelling) and nonprofit leadership. I live in and love Oakland, California.
