An award-winning journalist, civil rights activist and filmmaker, Jim Carrier has written eleven books, produced documentaries on civil rights and the banjo, been published in the National Geographic and the New York Times, written Denver Post series on the legacy of the atomic bomb and the Marlboro Man, and produced multimedia projects for the Southern Poverty Law Center. He has roamed by Jeep through the American West and by sailboat across the Atlantic and Mediterranean. His reporting has been broadcast on NPR, PBS and included in Best American Science and Nature Writing. Jim's reporting from the West, as the Rocky Mountain Ranger, took him through 500,000 miles, 7,665 sunsets and 87 pairs of Levis. In 1997, he bought a sailboat, named it Ranger, and set out to sail the Pacific. He diverted to Alabama because of a hate crime against a black man. Volunteering at the Southern Poverty Law Center, he wrote Ten Ways to Fight Hate, a community guide distributed to one million officials and human rights activists. Carrier developed Tolerance.org, which won two Webbys for activist Web sites and produced the film, Faces in the Water, which shows every 30 minutes at the Civil Rights Memorial. Now based in Burlington, VT, his freelance work focuses on medical science - and sailing, as a contributing editor at Cruising World. Carrier is currently at work on an historical memoir of the Marlboro Man, and a science memoir about ulcerative colitis. He and his daughter, Amy, descend from Martha Carrier who was hanged as a witch in Salem, Massachusetts. His wife, Trish O'Kane, PhD, is a lecturer in environmental education at the University of Vermont.Read more Read less
