As a home owner in our neighborhood since 2000 I have seen firsthand the changes that family and pedestrian friendly businesses have brought our area. As a lecturer in CSULA Geosciences and Environment department (former Geography and Urban Analysis department), I believe that I can mitigate some of our concern as residents, and help attract businesses into our area that work with our unique neighborhood character. We will work together to find ways that businesses, developments and the needs of the neighborhood all benefit.

Chair Parks and Open Space

Bio

I believe that this is an exciting time to live and work in Hollywood.  I am a Southern California native who loves this city and the history that it represents.  I own a business that specializes in producing and publishing new digital editions of films from the silent era, which often have relevant significance to the local history here.  As the Chair of Parks & Open Space, I am committed to working with stakeholders to promote enlightened stewardship and maintain our area’s open space as a refuge and unique environment in contrast to the city around it.  I’ve previously worked with the Council and City Offices to re-open Upper Wattles Park after an intermittent 18-month closure, and have regularly volunteered to maintain Runyon Canyon.  I am honored to serve on the Council and to do important and timely work in our community.
