About Editor

I’m David Fellows, and I’ve served as a writer, photographer and/or an editor on my junior high and high school newspapers; the Daily Trojan at USC (where I earned my journalism degree); the student newspaper at the Anderson School at UCLA (where I earned my MBA); and I’ve written and edited countless business documents and presentations in the ensuing twenty years. I was also a professional photographer from 1978 to 1988 (although you never really stop…).

I’ve been involved Jewishly since my bris and in Boulder since 1995. I’m married to my Executive Director Cheryl, and we have two children, Lauren and Ethan.
