I'm a writer/producer/director and journalist from the San Fernando Valley in Los Angeles, California. I regularly contribute art & culture articles to a variety of media, and write short stories, essays, and screenplays. Some of my favorite films are Do the Right ThingEasy Rider, Badlands, Two Lane Blacktop, Wall StreetPulp Fiction, The Goonies, FletchAirplane!, Johnny Dangerously, and the original Star Wars trilogy.

I spend my free time volunteering as a UC Master Gardener, which means I'm certified to teach organic gardening in the county of Los Angeles. I didn't write this article, but I think it gives some good reasons Why Growing Food is The Single Most Impactful Thing You Can Do in a Corrupt Political System. I like good food!
