West Hollywood Book Fair Poster Art

West Hollywood Book Fair Poster Art

I work with literary organizations, book festivals, book sellers, publishers, authors, performers, cultural organizations, scientists, elected officials, advocates, critics, conservationists, social changers, educators, and others to conceptualize, create, develop, and direct innovative literary programs that engage a broad spectrum of the community. I also independently curate and produce literary programs, often focusing on the intersection of the literary arts with other disciplines. In my literary work, I foster connections amongst diverse groups and communities to create multi-disciplinary programs, bringing together disciplines such as the arts, sciences, and sustainable living movements.

Programs on which I currently work include:

  • Sci-Fest LA Science Fiction Short Story Writing Competitions, Director & Co-Founder
  • Lit Crawl L.A., Co-founder & Curatorial Team, & Former Community & Government Outreach Director
  • Literature for Life Literary Journal & Educator’s Resource, Managing Editor & Curriculum Director

My past programs include:

  • West Hollywood Book Fair, Co-founder & Director
  • LitFest Pasadena, Creative Consultant (festival design and programming)
  • Indie Shelves Initiative at The Last Bookstore, Co-Curator (science & sci-fi writers focus)
  • “A Night of Spooky Storytelling” at The Last Bookstore, Curator and Producer

A few of the organizations and companies with which I have established relationships include:
