LA Weekly Column

As a masthead columnist for LA Weekly for two years, I told the complicated story of Los Angeles from many different angles.

I jumped off cliffs, climbed under bridges, and snuck into grave sites. I interviewed rappers (Chief Keef), tech CEOS (Hans Yang), councilmen (Jose Huizar), street artists (Plastic Jesus) real estate moguls (Jonathan Schley), models (Permaid), restauranteurs (Tyler Wells), and the Mayor of Skid Row (General Jeff).  

I directed a short documentary, shot a photo essay, wrote silly listicles tweeted by the thousands and longform investigative articles now taught at Urban Development courses at USC.

Here are some of my favorites stories:

I wrote substantial portions of Best of LA 2014 and 2015.
And wrote, produced, and directed this short documentary.
