Communications Officer,

Venice Neighborhood Council

Board of Directors 2014 Term


Hard Worker – Clear Thinker – Peacemaker


I love Venice, and I know how lucky we are to live in our paradise by the sea.


On the Land Use and Planning Committee from 2006-2010, I was fortunate to work with longtime activists and preeminent LUPC Chair Challis Macpherson, who taught us to listen well and to speak up. 


image004.jpgUnder Challis, LUPC galvanized its reputation as "Jewel of the VNC," tackling tough issues with respect for open dialog, transparency and community input. 


During this time, I also moderated the 2008 fences and hedges controversy and, in 2010, worked with Robin Rudisill on the Board's Food Truck Task Force, bringing recommendations for new regulations to the City. 


Serving as VNC Board Community Officer from 2010 to 2012, I continued my ongoing service on the Outreach Committee and maintained the web site, improved the mail system and helped to revive the Communications Committee, on which I serve today. 


With your vote, I promise to improve the web site's display and operation, restore transparency and best practices to LUPC and, most of all, work with you to address our common challenges for keeping Venice diverse, safe and fun for everyone!
