Belinda has been active in the community media and technology movement for over 25 years. She started out at an all-volunteer radio station in Cincinnati, Ohio, where she programmed a late night radio show for 18 years and began to understand the importance of community based media in society.
She began her career in non-profit work at the Cincinnati Art Museum and moved on to Media Bridges Cincinnati, which she transformed from a traditional public access television model into a media arts education center. Later, Belinda took on a transitional role as the Executive Director of the New Mexico Media Literacy Project, helping to strengthen the organization during the founding director’s retirement.
Drawn back to community radio, Belinda’s next moved to Northern California to head up Mendocino County Public Broadcasting, a rural community radio network with six facilities, three frequencies, and 125 volunteers. In 2008, she returned to the east coast and became the Executive Director of the Transmission Project where she also works. Here she works with media and technology non-profits across the nation to build their capacity to better serve their communities.
Belinda is trained as a facilitator in the Technology of Participation and as an Interim Executive Leader. She continues her work as a volunteer programmer, hosting her weekly radio show, Bubbles in the Think Tank.
Belinda also serves as the Field Director for Prometheus Radio Project's LPFM Outreach Campaign.
