Fab Planet Summit Speaker: Nick Colin

Nick-Colin-headshot-300x300pxI’m the Communications Manager at Heal the Bay, a marine and coastal conservation organization based in Santa Monica, Calif. I do the meat-and-potatoes stuff—copywriting, social media, public relations—but I really relish designing targeted, creative outreach campaigns that highlight our eco-battles du jour in a language that people understand. Currently, I’m crafting a marketing and communications strategy to galvanize opposition to an ill-advised (and precedent-setting) oil recovery proposal in Hermosa Beach. Before moving to Los Angeles, I managed Community Engagement at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco, where I produced multidisciplinary programming and developed and nurtured strategic partnerships with a cohort of diverse community groups. I’m interested in how the use of language, media and design informs, frames and reshapes environmental discourse. Without scuba diving, I’m utterly lost.
