Arielle comes to BCM from the Central Coast of California with over seven years of experience in Public Access television. She is an Apple Certified Trainer in Final Cut Pro and has worked on a wide variety of productions throughout her career. Arielle meows frequently in her free time and is easily bribed with blueberry muffins.
Mike Vaughn has been working in the live & recorded entertainment industry for over thirty years. He has appeared in dozens of commercials, television programs, training films and a hand full of feature length motion pictures. He has worked across the country as a stage actor and taught theater and on-camera acting to all ages. He holds a B.A in Broadcasting/Theater from Columbia College Chicago and an M.A in Education from U.C Berkeley. He has a California teaching credential and taught English at Berkeley High School for six years.
Jeffrey is the Access Facilitator at BCM, where he maintains the studios and equipment. He also teaches the Youth TV Camp, Studio Production, and Field Production workshops. Jeffrey is a poet, musician and filmmaker and proud Oaklander. He studied film and lit at UC Santa Cruz and has worked on film crews and done lots of live-event videography. He tends to overemphasize the ontological priority of language over consciousness but still thinks shooting psychedelic rock shows is fun. Sometimes he’s talkative, animated and sometimes he’s insecure. While he wants everyone to think he's hatching a genius plot to take over the art world, he's actually just trying to find his keys.
I got my first exposure to the TV/Video scene when, in 2000. I was accepted into the apprenticeship program at Berkeley Community Media. Prior to that I had been a teacher, caseworker, dance therapist, and carpenter/contractor. I now have completed all three tiers of the BCM Internship Program and am the Government Producer, with Masako Yamada, of The City of Berkeley's aired board and commission meetings on Channel 33. My interest in video lead me to the Multimedia Arts department at Vista where I have completed 40 credits. Having completed classes in editing, DVD production, and motion graphics I now independently produce segments for BCM. I am mostly interested in issues concerning social justice.
My most exciting work was as part of a team producing segments for Paper Tiger's nightly news magazine during the Republican National Convention in 2004.
I am an established business professional with 25 years experience managing both small and medium-sized organizations. I have my master’s degree in Business Administration from San Francisco State University, as well as my bachelor’s degree in Broadcast and Electronic Communications Arts, also from SFSU. I was BCM’s Operations Manager from 2003 until late 2009, at which time I parted ways with the organization and pursued other business goals. I contributed my skills and efforts on behalf of Census 2010. Then I became the Senior Accounting Manager for Asbestos TEM Laboratories in west Berkeley from 2011 until late 2012. While at ATEM Labs, I also served as a key member of the senior management team. I have returned to Berkeley Community Media as the Business Manager, and bring along my experience as a human resources professional -- another role I have filled during many of my recent operations and accounting jobs. I look forward to again providing BCM with a solid business foundation and a steady hand of experienced management leadership.
