About Me

Journalist covering the natural and organic foods industry, from farm to brand to retailer, for New Hope, the leading source of news for the industry. In addition, public relations and content marketing professional working in diverse fields. Broad experience crafting, executing and leading content strategies for clients in a range of industries.

Multiple awards, as well as one Pulitzer Prize (as part of a group award for coverage of a mass shooting), two individual nominations for the Pulitzer Prize and three nominations for James Beard Awards. A published book, with publicity appearances on hundreds of radio, print and broadcast outlets, including three interviews on the Today show. Specialties in deep research and reporting, and fluid storytelling. Crafting complicated material, such as data analytics and wide-ranging research, into compelling editorial content stands as a unique strength.

Douglas spent more than two decades writing about everything from the White House (surprisingly dull) to crime in New Mexico (unsurprisingly lively) to food (mmm) before pivoting away from full-time newspaper and magazine work. Now in addition to his pay-the-bills toil he freelances for a variety of publications, mostly about wine (*hic*). One of his gigs is Drinking With Doug, a bi-weekly newspaper column in The Daily Camera, his hometown (Boulder, CO) newspaper.
