I’m a writer specializing in Los Angeles history. My regular blog posts for KCET.org, Los Angeles magazine, and Gizmodo’s Southland tell often-surprising stories about Southern California’s past through the rich visual collections of L.A. as Subject members. I also contribute freelance stories to Los Angeles magazine and other publications.
I work in USC’s historic Doheny Memorial Library, where I serve as manager of academic events and programming for the USC Libraries, the host institution for L.A. as Subject. In addition to my writing duties, I manage the libraries’ social media presence and as part of an amazing communications team help develop original programming.
Born and raised in suburban Orange County, California, I now live in downtown Los Angeles with my cat Marengo.
