Bill Buchanan

I'm a journalist at heart, although I also spent 15 years working in tech and information security communications for UC Davis. I started Davisville in 2008 so I could interview people about events, stories and situations involving Davis. My guests so far include town leaders (elected and otherwise), musicians (including 3 who played in the Byrds), a TV horror/sci-fi show host, businesspeople, a former Alcatraz convict, foster parents, students, people who work in the media, authors, a survivor of Auschwitz, a survivor of Jonestown, a World War II infantry combat veteran, comics, the commander of the USS John McCain, a troop of Davis Girl Scouts who ditched their screens every night for a week, high-school reunion organizers -- basically, anyone doing something interesting with a connection to Davis.

**Davisville has won several Excellence in Journalism awards from the San Francisco Press Club, in 2018, 2019, 2020 and 2021**
