Local Editor for Piedmont Patch and Rockridge Patch.
I started with Patch as the copy editor for 11 Patch sites: Alameda, Albany, Castro Valley, El Cerrito, Hercules, Newark, Piedmont, Pinole, San Leandro, San Lorenzo and Union City. Currently I'm the local editor at Piedmont Patch and Rockridge Patch. Questions? firstname.lastname@example.org. Before coming to Patch, I was the editor/publisher of Parents' Press, a magazine for Bay Area parents, for more years than I like to remember. Before that, I was news editor at the Contra Costa Times and a reporter at various Northern California newspapers.
I'm a fifth generation Californian who has lived in the East Bay most of my life and a graduate of UC Berkeley. For fun, I volunteer on archaeology digs, mostly in Ireland and the Southwest.
I live with a gorgeous but none-too-bright springer spaniel and an aging, opinionated cat. My brilliant and beautiful daughter, Jenny, is a school psychologist in Los Angeles.
