GOOD LAND MAN: Goleta native Chris Salcedo, who just started interning for us, doesn’t like to stay in one place for too long: He just got back from a long trip in Turkey and already has his eyes set on a journey to Haiti. Interested in environmentalism in urban settings, Salcedo wrote a blog for us during his European venture that examined the intersection of Islam and the green movement. When he’s not working as a bouncer at EOS Lounge, Salcedo is honing his ping-pong prowess or playing basketball. The UCSB graduate and first-generation American says he’s wanted to write since the second grade, and we’re happy to let him. Follow Salcedo’s work at independent.com/salcedo.
