I LOVE OLD BUILDINGS, ESPECIALLY WHEN THEY'rE...

donut shaped.

brutalist. 

Googie.

organic. 

minimalist. 

You get the idea. I love it all when it comes to the built heritage of Southern California, particularly the mid-20th century, and how that history will shape our future.

For the last decade I have used Long Beach as my home base for exploring Modernism. I am a passionate advocate and documentarian with a graduate degree in Heritage Conservation from the University of Southern California School of Architecture. I have worked on a range of projects, including the Historic American Building Survey of the Eames House, and my interior design portfolio includes an Eichler Home, a Cliff May Rancho, and an A. Quincy Jones-designed house in Crestwood Hills that was featured in Atomic Ranch magazine.

A founding board member of the Southern California chapter of Docomomo, I also served on the Executive Council of the Los Angeles Conservancy Modern Committee. I have helped develop a range of programming, including home tours, for these organizations and the University Art Museum at California State University Long Beach.

Follow along as I share my love of Long Beach Modern (and beyond!) and if you have a great place to share or project to discuss, please reach out to me.
