Chip Giller

Chip Giller founded Grist in 1999 to lighten up a movement known for taking itself too seriously. He was honored with a Heinz Award in 2009 for launching the country’s most influential green media platform. He was named a TIME magazine "Hero of the Environment" in 2007, and was awarded the 2006 National Conservation Achievement Award by the National Wildlife Federation. Giller has been featured for his work in such outlets as Vanity Fair, Newsweek, and Outside, and has appeared on broadcast programs including NBC’s Today show and PBS's NOW.

Before launching Grist, Giller was editor of Greenwire, the first environmental news daily. He is a senior fellow with the Environmental Leadership Program and a three-time journalism fellow with the Institutes for Journalism and Natural Resources.

A native of Massachusetts, Chip graduated from Brown University with an honors degree in environmental studies. When Giller’s not pondering the future of online environmental journalism, he likes to spend his time with his wonderful wife, Jenny, their daughter Ellis, and their son, Sebastian, at their home on Vashon Island, near Seattle.
