I'm a writer/producer/director, author, and journalist originally from the San Fernando Valley in Los Angeles, California. I regularly contribute art & culture articles to a variety of media, and write short story fiction, essays, and screenplays. 

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
