Eileen nurtures the creative ethos of Circle of Blue by cultivating the lyrical ingredients of journalism to supporting the human factor in all aspects of our work. Eileen has an MA in radio and television production from the University of Detroit. She is a writer, director, and narrator who produced and hosted regional and national programming for 13 years at Interlochen Public Radio, a National Public Radio affiliate in Northern Michigan. Eileen has won Telly Awards for her scriptwriting and documentary work, and her association with Circle of Blue follows many years of independent multimedia journalistic projects and a life-long love of the Great Lakes. She holds an undergraduate and a masters degree (summa cum laude) in film and video from the University of Detroit. Dedicated to seeing our world from new perspectives, she gave this project its name. “In the long view,” Eileen says in our flagship video, “we are defined against the edge of space as a simple circle of blue.”
Circle of Blue provides relevant, reliable, and actionable on-the-ground information about the world’s resource crises.
