Douglas McGray: I'm the Editor in Chief of The California Sunday Magazine and Pop-Up Magazine, and the CEO of their publisher, California Sunday, Inc.
I'm interested in the power of storytelling, both old-fashioned and new, to explore important issues and ideas and to bring people together.
In October 2014, I launched The California Sunday Magazine, available online and in print -- delivered with Sunday editions of the Los Angeles Times, San Francisco Chronicle, Sacramento Bee, and San Diego Union-Tribune.
I'm also the co-creator of Pop-Up Magazine, a "live magazine" that presents documentary filmmakers, photographers, writers, public radio producers, and artists, live on stage at San Francisco's 2700-seat Louise M. Davies Symphony Hall and the 1600-seat Theatre at Ace Hotel in Los Angeles. Between issues, we've collaborated on live mixed-media performances with Beck, ESPN, McSweeney's, and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, and in March 2015 we guest edited a session at the TED Conference.
My writing has appeared in the New Yorker, the New York Times Magazine, the Los Angeles Times, Wired, and elsewhere.
I've made radio stories too, mostly for This American Life.
I graduated from Brown University, and live in San Francisco, California.
