I’m a freelance writer, journalist, and editor with an extensive background working creatively in publishing, TV, film and on the web. I specialize in screenwriting, web content and copy, and feature writing in art, fashion and music. I also have broad knowledge of graffiti and organic gardening.

I wrote a feature film called Down For Life. It’s a Los Angeles female gangsta film starring Danny Glover, Snoop Dogg, Emily Rios, and Elizabeth Pena.

I’m a freelance writer for R. Rock Enterprises. Recent projects involve a book on L.A. legend of graffiti, RISK, and a documentary on the star of Sanrio, Hello Kitty. We’re in the middle of  WALL WRITERS, a book/documentary project about the early history of graffiti in NY and Philly (1967 – 1972).

I edited  CITIZENS OF HUMANITY magazine No. 5, which is available now in stores that sell CoH jeans or with any online order. I contributed articles and interviews on artist Ed Ruscha, Japan’s BERBERJIN vintage, Christy Turlington Burns and Roger Ross William’s newest documentary film projects, and fashion designer John Ward.

My short story Cash For Books was published in the short story anthology Book Lovers, edited by author Shawna Kenney and published by Seal Press in spring of 2014.

I wrote the didactic text for a museum exhibit called PUMP ME UP: D.C. subculture of the 1980s that opened February 2013 at the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., and was curated by Roger Gastman. I interviewed fine artists Cynthia Connoly and Robin Rose and wrote an essay about the 9:30 Club for the exhibit catalogue/book. The project includes a documentary Roger and Joseph Pattisall made about D.C. icon COOL DISCO DAN that inspired the exhibit.

I produced and directed three awesome web shows called Star Wars Transmission: Celebration VI for StarWars.com (we interviewed George Lucas!).

I’m a contributing writer for Juxtapoz Magazine and RELIX Magazine.

I produced several TV comedy specials called The Nerdist that aired on BBC America, and a funny little TV show called Web Soup that aired for 3 seasons on the late G4tv.

    Hey! I wanted to thank you for following me on tumblr, but I couldn’t find your “message me” on that page so I strayed over here, and I am glad I did!! I loved reading this About Me section, you’re involved in some really cool and interesting careers. I love Juxtapoz magazine too (huge fan of Tomer and Asaf Hanuka and started picking up Juxtapoz because of it).

    You are amazing! It is so nice to read about your success and I would LOVE one day to grow all my own food. The next place I rent will have more space outside. I am growing some pepper plants. My herbs got spider mites when I was out of town.:( we should get together… Sage is 3.5 and amazing (even when I want to cry). I still have the sane. Umber, you? Hope to talk soon- Liz
