Based in East Hollywood, Los Angeles, J.T. The L.A. Storyteller has published social commentary and local history for L.A. since 2014.
Articles published include opinions on education at L.A. schools, on L.A. Metro planning, on housing and small business in the city, on L.A. books, and more. Photography published on the blog is also community-minded, focusing on the moments that make L.A. home to working-class people from all across the U.S.A. and around the world. J.T. The L.A. Storyteller also organizes to bring literary arts and communities together, including East Hollywood’s first two annual “Back 2 School” parties in the LA City College area, two days of free arts and education workshops for at least 50 different parents, teenagers, and other members of the community. In March 2019, ‘J.T.’ was featured on the L.A. Times for a story on how different residents have ushered in or responded to the ongoing gentrification of Los Angeles. When not publishing, J.T. The L.A. Storyteller is working on the new podcast and getting Los Cuentos merchandise off the ground, all for and all through Los Angeles. All heart and all dedicated to the place we call home.
