about me

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.
