Sam Parker

Program Associate
Southern Documentary Fund
I currently handle our Fiscal Sponsorship program, internal operations, comms, and general staff support.  

I was born and raised in Anchorage, Alaska, where I developed a deep and abiding love for oral storytelling and direct representation in media-making through community radio.  I've served as the Program Director and News & Public Affairs Director at KUGS-FM in Washington, helped to build community organizing infrastructure at Social Justice Fund NW, and was a pivotal part of Hollow Earth Radio’s campaign to transition from online arts radio to on-the-air neighborhood hub.  

When I'm not at work, I'm working on the perfect blackberry pie recipe, stitching together field recordings, and finding deep cuts in the bargain bin and on the web.
