Warren Etheredge didn't speak until he was 6 years old; he's been going strong ever since, making a lively livelihood and the most out of every conversation, elevating small talk to high art, discourse to an ideal. He talks. He teaches. He finds stories.
Warren is one of the founding faculty of TheFilmSchool, helping filmmakers translate their stories for screens big and small, and The Red Badge Project, helping combat veterans work through PTSD and other issues by teaching them the art of storytelling. He has conducted over 3,000 interviews; on the page, on stage, and on screen. He hosts The High Bar, his Emmy®-nominated television series devoted to “raising the bar” through light-hearted conversation with people who care about culture that matters. He also hosts Reel NW, a showcase for the finest features, shorts and documentaries generated in the Pacific Northwest.
He is the founder of The Warren Report and the Editor-at-Large for Media Inc. (www.media-inc.com). As a producer, his credits include FUREVER (d. Amy Finkel); HUMOR ME (d. Chris Towey), EVERY BEAUTIFUL THING (d. Sonya Lea) and WAYSIDE JUNCTION (d. April Larson).
Warren is the former Curator for the 1 Reel Film Festival (at Bumbershoot) and a programmer for The Seattle International Film Festival. He is a published author, an Off-Broadway produced playwright, an acclaimed documentarian, a regular contributor to public radio and a much sought-after public speaker on myriad topics. Born and raised in Manhattan, Warren makes his home in Seattle along with his partner, Nancy, their three children, an adoring pit bull, and an irascible bunny rabbit.
