Los Angeles online


Magazine coverMy piece on PR giant Fleishman-Hillard and its top local operative, former Daily News managing editor Doug Dowie, is now up on the Los Angeles magazine site. The other story posted out of the February issue (The Actor's Life issue) is Dave Gardetta's profile of Zakk Moore, a young actor who waits tables in Sherman Oaks, flops on a couch in North Hollywood, and wants to be typecast as a surfer dude who is hot, young, and dumb as rocks. Patric Kuh's review of the Zen Grill and Sake Lounge in Westwood is also online. Contents page.
