BASED IN EAST HOLLYWOOD, LOS ANGELES, I AM A WRITER, PHOTOGRAPHER AND COMMUNITY ORGANIZER IN LOS ANGELES WHOSE BLOG HAS PUBLISHED LITERATURE AND PHOTOGRAPHY FOR L.A. SINCE 2014. Articles on my blog include commentaries on education at L.A. schools, on L.A. Metro planning, on housing and small business in the city, on L.A. books, and more. My photography is also community-minded, focusing on the moments that make L.A. home to working-class people from all across the U.S.A. and around the world. My organizing brings my writing and photographic work together. This past August 2018 and 2019, I designed and facilitated East Hollywood’s first two annual “Back 2 School” parties in the LA City College area, two days of free arts and education workshops for at least 50 different parents, teenagers, and other members of the community.
