Kerry Candaele, Co-Producer
Born in Vancouver, Canada, Kerry Candaele grew up in Lompoc, a small
working-class town on the central coast of California with one too
many Wal-Marts. Mr. Candaele worked in the fields and factories around
Lompoc before finding that reading books was more pleasurable than
standing at a conveyor belt.
After attending Chico State College, U.C.
Santa Barbara, and Columbia University--where he was a Richard
Hofstader Fellow in U.S. history--Kerry taught history and politics at
various colleges including Occidental College and Cal State Dominguez
Hills in California.
Before coming to Brave New Films,
Mr. Candaele worked for the Democracy Council, a Los Angeles-based
NGO, concentrating on democracy-building projects all over the Middle
East, Central America, and South East Asia, including East Timor.
He is the author of two books on U.S. history, and many articles in both
popular and academic periodicals. He resides in Venice, California,
with his wife and three daughters.
