Email: email@example.comA constant explorer, Katie brings her experience in radio, graphic design, publishing, and thoughtful living to her work as Marketing Manager at Parallax. She has a nose for good stories. She often likes to tell them. And she will always love books for being what they are: perfect portals with the capacity to see into others and ourselves. She also publishes titles with Mount Vision Press, based in Inverness, CA and lives in a small cabin just north of there on the coast. Her vinyl collection, plus a piano, take up most of her living room.
Heather has always worked in the book business, at bookstores, book distributors and publishers including Lonely Planet and Wilderness Press before landing at Parallax in 2010. She loves to read, hear live music, travel and the San Francisco Giants.

He was first exposed to Buddhist thought in high school and it has been a presence in his life ever since. As an editor, Jacob is most interested in projects that have the potential to change and challenge the way we think and live.
When he’s not editing, he enjoys long walks in the redwoods with his dog Juniper, and being unabashedly hopeful (there’s always next year) about the New York Mets.
