Q1. What was your favorite project to work on?
I think my favorite project as of late would be the posters I created for a field office at Necco. They are quotes from Nicholas Hobbs book, The Troubled and Troubling Child. These are some core principles that Necco uses when working with our kids in foster care.
Q2. What attracted you to be a part of People’s Liberty?
I heard about People's Liberty from my good friend, fellow designer, and rezi alum, Jon Medina. He told me to check out all the work they are doing in the community. When I did my research I fell in love with the concept and wanted to be a part of it in some way. Since I don't live in the 275 beltway, Mad Philanthropy was my way in. What keeps me coming back is the way we are connecting grantees and residents with the community at large. It's so cool to be a part of it.
Q3. Describe your PL experience in 3 words.
Challenging. Engaging. Fun.
Q4. What is/was your favorite lunch break treat?
Favorite lunch break treat was walking around the city. I wouldn't walk in the same direction. I would always explore a new route. It was a way for me to get refreshed and also see a new side of the city I haven't experienced before.
Q5. Quick question. If you could invite anyone, no boundaries, to be
speaker at PL, who would it be?
Man, that's a tough one. I would love to hear Propaganda speak at PL. Social Activist who is heavily involved with his community in LA.
