Principal at BACIPIX, Emmy Award–winning TV veteran Rick Bacigalupi started as an intern at KPIX–TV San Francisco in 1986. He has served as a unit manager for Westinghouse Broadcasting’s national magazine show "PM Magazine," an associate producer for KQED’s news show "This Week in Northern California" and a freelance co–producer for KQED’s Local Heroes campaign for over 10 years.
In 1996 he founded BACIPIX (because "Bacigalupi Words & Pictures" is just too long!) to further explore some of the great stories and causes being discovered through the Local Heroes project. Shortly thereafter he began work on "A Lot in Common" and "Only in the Castro," (link) which became the premiere efforts of the A Lot in Common Documentary Unit. Five additional independent documentaries are currently in production.
Rick serves on the Board of Governors for the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences, Northern California/Hawai’i Chapter. He is a member of NATAS, Media Alliance, Bay Area Video Coalition, and the International Documentary Association.
Rob has been designing Internet sites since 1993, from the ASCII–based "graphics" of Bulletin Board Systems to today’s web technology. He extended his computer design to law firms in the Bay Area. He became a member of the Bay Area Association of Litigation Support Managers, an organization that shares best practices and technology tips among legal support professionals. Between 1998 and 2000, Rob served as president of the association. He returned to university for two years, earning certificates in both Project Management and Computer Project Management from the University of California, Berkeley Extension in 2006.
