We received this via email this morning. Always a great way to start they day.
I saw an article about your project in OaklandNorth, and thought I might see if there was an opportunity to work with you. I'm sure you get many requests for collaboration, but I think you'll find my credentials somewhat unique. I've lived in Oakland for 15 years, the last 4 in Eastmont. Academically, I am a sociologist, and, the past 5 years I've been working as a field tech for Comcast covering all of Oakland, Emeryville, and Piedmont. I have met every point of the socio-economic spectrum. It has been, and continues to be one of the most fascinating vantage points from which to interact and learn from a city I love, deeply. The stories I've heard have deepened my understanding and love of the human condition,and have impressed upon me that, when we embrace the humanity of those most in need, we come one step closer to embracing our own.. Of course, there is a lot more to me than just this, after all, I, like most people in this city have a story to tell.
If you haven't checked out the article about Projet En Vue on Oakland North, we recommend it. We think it's hilarious and Adam Grossberg did a fantastic job. You can find it HERE.
