Selected Works

Indigenous roots of Los Angeles’ layout, center, commercial corridors and the buildings that line them.
L.A.’s planning achievement, its sabotage, how it was done, who did it and why.
Although paved over, L.A.’s spirit remains. Visions rise from the asphalt guiding vegetarian musicians like Marc, an Angelino Heights rare bookseller who rides a bike and packs gourmet lunches for his over-worked wife. What happens when he lands a holiday gig at downtown’s most exclusive (meat-eating) haunt?
