Mike Kahn is proud to be a Project Supervisor for KQED Presents, helping independent film producers distribute their programs nationally to public television. He has the pleasure to help distribute programs like Food Forward and Joanne Weir's Cooking Confidence (examples hand picked for you foodies out there!). Mike holds degrees in Sociology (U.C. Berkeley) and Interactive Media Design (Art Institute of California - San Francisco). Mike loves to learn about environmental sustainability and to share that knowledge with others through photography and multimedia projects. He's a Bay Area native and has been a lacto-ovo vegetarian for 15 years. His personal claim to fame is riding his bicycle across the U.S. from California to Maine, alone.
