Investing in Los Angeles
Even though I didn't grow up here, I always felt LA was my home. I've been here for many years now and am deeply engaged in LA's culture and progress. While I spend most of my time immersed in my primary job (at LA-based Burner), I am passionate about seeing this city grow in more ways than one. Below are some of the local projects and causes I contribute to.
Yes In My LA!
LA has close to 60,000 people living without housing. "Yes In My LA" is a guide to how the city and county plans to house them. I worked on a team with the League of Women Voters to produce this guide.
LA Dance Film Festival
Betsy Uhler Colombo and I started the LA Dance Film Festival in 2016. LADFF aims to expand local creation, collaboration and viewership through exhibiting extraordinary international dance films.
