How are you currently involved in the Transition movement?
I'm was a columnist for Mile Hi Green magazine and did Green Reports on 99/5 The Mountain for four years.. My web project is called the Denver Green Channel. I'm a veteran Green reporter locally and I'm transforming our 1/4 suburban acre into a micro-homestead.
In what ways do you identify with the Transition movement? Why are you interested?
I'm interested in the practical ground-level changes that a community can support to ready us for the upcoming transition from fossil fuel dependence to a much more practical infrastructure. Many brilliant people have shown the way already; I want to be a part of making Transition a household word, to making the concept attractive and attainable.
What background and skills do you bring to this community?
Green Reporter for 4 years locally; professional media for 20 years; suburban homesteader.
How can you help the growth/acceptance/vitality of the Transition movement?
Media knowledge, community action, networking using media connections.

Robbie - - Yes, I will be at the RM Sustainability Fair 1:00 -3:00 on Saturday, and appreciate your offer of an interview. Earlier in that time range would be better, so we will need to prepare to present a workshop at 3:00. You could interview me or the co-convener of Transition Fort Collins, Dr. John Fitch. Transition will have a booth at the Fair, sponsored by Tr. Colorado and staffed by Tr. Fort Collins. - - Best wishes, Brian
