Neighborhood: Virgil Village


As a native Angelino, I have experienced a tremendous amount of cultural diversity within my lifetime, from my upbringing in Virgil Village (just west of a now heavily gentrified Echo Park and Silver Lake) to my explorations of areas such as Watts, East Los Angeles, the San Fernando Valley and West Hollywood. I am a bicyclist and supporter of nature (both human and nonhuman). A traveler and a environmental activist. A dreamer and conduit of peace. As a visual artist I have been welcomed into various communities all across the United States, from Louisiana and Arizona, to my current location in Arcata- the place where I am currently studying. As of May 2013 I will have received my bachelor’s degree in English Literature from Humboldt State University Along this journey I have been published in multiple venues (various mediums), have served as the vice-chair of the Silver Lake Neighborhood Council; costume designer (“stoomer”) for the Humboldt Circus, and have led multiple writing workshops: As a camp counselor, after school program instructor, class coordinator, executive board member and active volunteer, I have had many joys, triumphs and tribulations. Currently I am weaving together my passion for community stregthening with my love for ecology,uusing literature, film, print and electronic media to highlight intersecting communal issues. In this world that we co-inhabit, I have discovered that the greatest moments are not simply in the pages of books, but in conversations that stretch beyond an afternoon. Family and friends, from the depths of my Heart I thank you for the time you have spent reading this and I hope you enjoy this ever-expanding labor of love that has become my life.
