I’m a staff writer at the North Bay Bohemian.
Here’s a short list of topics I’ve written on for the paper: Cal Fresh, “disconnected youth,” food security, scooters, PJ Harvey, Mexican ice cream, police brutality, Rebecca Solnit, Blitzen Trapper, communist singer-songwriters, bicycles, Citizens United, Junot Diaz, Homebrewers and Nanobrewers, North Bay Utopian communities, “Edupunks,” Wizard Rock, California prison overcrowding, Hair stylists, medical marijuana, Cheryl Strayed, Shoe surgeons, poet laureates, Robert Hass, Wigmakers, Secure Communities corruption, Agenda 21, Lloyd Kahn….and more.
After years of writing zines, my first national publication was an essay about watching my mom participate in the Southern California grocery strike, published in the now-defunct Clamor Magazine. My work has appeared in Punk Planet, the City Works Press Anthology Sunshine/Noir: Writings from San Diego and Tijuana, The Cleveland Scene, Santa Cruz Weekly, Sacramento News and Review, Shareable.net, Metro Silicon Valley, Know Journal, Petals and Bones, fwriction: review and the Orlando Weekly.
The Roomate Revolution, an essay originally written for Shareable, was picked up by Yes Magazine online and Alternet. It led to an appearance on HuffPost Live, where I was part of a panel discussion on cooperative living.
