Senior Editor Huntington Sharp has a dogged commitment to le mot juste. He loves his work at Red Room "because it's like being a fly on the wall of the most brilliant salons in the world, all at the same time." Prior to his current position, he worked in an obviously calculated series of fields including government law, cabaret, and contemporary lighting. Then, in 2002, at Ivory Madison's invitation, he became one of the original four members of the Red Room Writers Society, which eventually grew into Red Room. He studied linguistics and English at the University of California, Santa Barbara, and earned his juris doctorate at New College of California Law School, where he served as an editor for the Law Review. He published a well-received commentary in the Law Review called Justicia ex Machina: The Myth of the Machine/Progressive Binary in San Francisco Politics. In his youth, for fun, he read books like the Oxford History of England, 1870-1914, was the high school correspondent for his hometown newspaper, and became an Eagle Scout. Sharp was not originally going to mention that he came in second at the Sonoma Masonic Lodge 5th Grade Spelling Bee, but there it is. This picture was taken on his birthday over lunch with the rest of the Red Room team; he turned twenty-nine.
Reading, writing, editing, connecting professionally and personally, talking about history, geography, politics, and culture over food and drink, and then sleeping soundly.
