Director of Communications
John German is a lifelong science writer and professional communicator and the Institute's chief storyteller. His primary goals are growing and engaging SFI's community. Working with a top-notch team of contract writers, designers, illustrators, photographers, and videographers -- and, of course, SFI's leadership, scientists, and staff -- he directs the Institute's news operation, its online and social media presence, its publications, and its relationships with the local, national, and international news media. He also gives a pretty decent tour. His past includes 20 years as a corporate communicator at Sandia National Laboratories, an education in professional writing and environmental science, and an upbringing steeped in science.
