As citizen, I focus on local, concrete efforts to improve my local community especially for people who are most at risk of harm.

This has led to a focus on transportation, housing, incarceration, policing, and governance.

These desires and focus drove me to participate in the most local form of government where I am, the Los Angeles Neighborhood Council System. For seven years I was on the board of the Hollywood Studio District Neighborhood Council (HSDNC), serving successively as vice-chair, chair, and secretary while also chairing various committees.

I resigned from the HSDNC on February 15, 2022 along with nine of the eleven sitting board members. I wrote about our mass resignation and the immediate fallout.
