I am leaving the El Paso Times.
My last day will be Nov. 1.
On Nov. 12, I'll start my new life as the program director of both the Plaza Classic Film Festival, one of my favorite local events since I got here in 2008, and the Chalk the Block public art festival.
Officially, I'll be an employee of the El Paso Community Foundation, which runs PCFF and partners with the city's Museums and Cultural Affairs Department on CTB.
The Community Foundation has created a position to bring some internal structure to the festivals. That's where I come in.
As much as I love entertainment journalism — I've been doing it since I was 16 — I'm looking forward to the new challenge.
I will continue to write for the Times in a limited capacity.
Wish me luck!
