CURRENT & RECENT WORK
SOCIAL EXPERIMENTER & ADVOCATE
In 2016, I had an idea for solving my city's housing crisis--using backyards for tiny houses on wheels. To prove it could work, we built one ourselves. Our of a wheelchair-accessible porta potty. The result is a tiny house with state-of-the-art technology to keep the home 100% off-grid. The idea's going so well, I started a charity housing program.

This past year has been a busy one for speaking engagements, giving presentations at several events. Notable venues and groups include Teach For America, Los Angeles City Hall, LA's Public Counsel, and recent keynote addresses at the 2019 California Tiny Living Festival and 2018 Peoples Tiny House Festival.

My journey began in the strangest of ways--sleeping behind my desk at work. Secretly. I sublet my apartment for a month. But what was supposed to be a month turned into 500 days. My writing on the topic has appeared in LA Weekly, Salon, Yahoo! Finance, and a ton of other sites. Read them all on the PRESS page and learn more about the office living experiment and blog at the link below.
