Giancarlo Rulli

Public Relations Manager

Seeing the emergent impacts of climate change on ocean health and human interaction on our state’s wildlife up close has had a profound impact on my life. By working at the world's largest marine mammal hospital, I believe I can help make a difference in finding solutions to these complex and challenging issues.

Giancarlo joined The Marine Mammal Center as a Youth Crew animal care volunteer in 2004. This experience, coupled with his radio career, has given him a unique perspective on storytelling and helps him highlight the Center’s critical mission work in an easy-to-understand manner.  

As Public Relations Manager, Giancarlo manages media interviews and onsite visits, as well as photo and documentary/commercial film shoots. He also drafts and coordinates public relations materials including press releases and media alerts, collaborating with partners including NOAA Fisheries, California Academy of Sciences and U.S. Fish & Wildlife. 

Before joining the Center in a staff role, Giancarlo served as a producer at KGMZ and KCBS Radio, where he produced an Associated Press award-winning three-part investigative series on rail bridge safety. He holds a degree in Broadcast and Digital Journalism from the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University.

Born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, Giancarlo currently resides in Sonoma County. When not at the Center, you’re likely to find him wading out into a river to fly fish for native trout and steelhead.
