MetroEast_Ron Braithwaite_Interim CIO

A long time ago back in 1970, I was one of the earliest volunteers at KBOO, when it was in a building basement on SW 3rd and Salmon. More recently, I was an early volunteer for the Portland Radio Project helping with networking and Internet issues. I have always been deeply committed to Community Media and to offering a voice to the voiceless.

Professionally, I was a photographer before discovering computers  in the late 70’s. I’ve done everything from writing computer languages, to video timecode generators, to managing teams of software developers, to teaching Software Engineering at the University of Zimbabwe, to IT management consulting. Now I find myself honored to be in the role of Interim CIO (Chief Information Officer) here at MetroEast Community Media.
