I started the East Bay Citizen in 2009 to fill the growing gap in local government journalism. In the years since, I'm the last man standing. You can also see my work in the East Bay Express, Alameda Magazine, and Oakland Magazine. I serve no special interests, except you. I was born an raised in Castro Valley and live in Alameda with my better half (she's the CEO); two cats, Lola and Mochi; one dog, Libby (she's named after the mayor of Oakland). I also host the Steve Tavares Is Angry podcast. Subscribe on iTunes and Stitcher!
