About Lisa

Lisa's roots in community media and public broadcasting go back to PCTV in the 1980's where she created award-winning television documentaries on political prisoners, US military intervention, social justice and feminist issues. Throughout the 80's and 90's she worked as a producer and manager in public television (KQED and KCSM) and corporate video departments, while contributing programs to Deep Dish TV and Free Speech TV. She taught media production at Laney College and Bay Area Video Coalition, while partnering with community groups on educational videos and radio programs. Lisa has been with Making Contact in a variety of capacities including Women's Desk Director, Co-Director of Live Wire Independent News, production trainer, fundraiser, and she became Executive Director in 2003. Lisa also serves on the coordinating committee of The Media Consortium comprised of 70 independent media groups across platforms. Lisa believes that "audience engagement" and "impact" are great old concepts being explored with fun new technology, and is enjoying working together to "take Making Contact to the next level."
