With an eye for design, a love of architecture, and a passion for urbanism, I've written for outlets including The New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, The Atlantic, The Hollywood Reporter, Architectural Record, Los Angeles magazine, and many others. More recently, my focus has expanded to cover infrastructure issues in the art world such as healthcare and fundraising.
MARKETING & STRATEGY.
As the founder of Radar Research, I work as a strategy consultant on digital transformation, marketing, and innovation projects focused on an empathetic understanding of the customer journey. Projects include brand audits, positioning, and architecture; establishing the vision for new digital experiences; and translating insights into strategic and tactical plans for an optimized mix of channels, content, and experiences. I've worked with full service agencies such as Huge, R\GA, TBWA\CHIAT\DAY, RAPP, startup agencies such as Product Inc and Heat Waves, and media companies such as Disney and Spotify,
As a co-founder of LA-based non-profit design east of La Brea (de LaB), I organized monthly events on the east side of Los Angeles that celebrate and support local creatives. Our goal was to create a civic-minded community invested in the future of LA. We won two National Endowment for the Arts Art Works grants for our Making LA initiative.
