Where do you live / work?

Eagle Rock, at the edge of NELA city-wise, and in the heart of NELA county-wise.

What types of UX events would you be interested in attending?

I prefer local-first startups to more ephemeral "cloudy" service plays, partly because I find their interface design optimizations more interesting.

What do you see as the biggest benefit to bringing UX and technology events to the NELA area?

We actually have a working public transportation system here now, while the west side is at least a couple years away from experiencing that leap in government-citizen interface design.

Anything else you'd like to tell us?

NELA is the best place to be right now. We're currently first in tourism brand recognition, real estate value growth, and new startup investment! Now if only we could get the city governments to work for us instead kowtowing to the stale old incumbents, it would be perfect here.


20 years in LA technology, 12 making AAA video games, and a few in web services and other interfaces. I far prefer NELA to all parts west.
