You might wonder what I’m doing in Los Angeles which makes nonsense of history and breaks all the rules. –Reyner Banham, 1972
By day I’m the Creative Director for a historic hotel. I spend a lot of the rest my time seeking the slow reveal of Los Angeles’ layered cultural history.
I am an archivist of memories and moments, compulsively journaling and collecting special objects and relics to render past as place. My favorite thing to do on a Sunday is walk along the secret stairways of Echo Park and come up with stories about the lonely furniture discarded onto the curbs. I like to read about feminism, body activism, architecture and art history. One day I want to live in a West Adams Victorian with big, lambent windows and an overflowing book collection.
