Hullo, I’m Eric Brightwell and my interests include adventure, art, botany, cooking, dance, dandyism, film, guerrilla gardening, the great outdoors, leisure, music, mycology, news, politics, travel, and ultraviolence.
I’m affiliated with Los Angeles Guerrilla Gardening and the Silver Lake Time Bank and am the organizing force behind Silver Lake Croquet League, Movie Nights at Pendersleigh, SoCal Explorers, and SoCal Train Nerd.
My series of neighborhood explorations are published as California Fool’s Gold. I paint maps as Pendersleigh & Sons Cartography. From 2011-2013 I operated Los Angles’s only gentlemen’s shop, Brightwell, but discovered that being in a shop all the time is not conducive to exploration.
I’m always looking for more writing gigs, provided they don’t have anything to do with the hijinks of television personalities or sports figures. Also, I work for money — not exposure or hugs or coffee (or peanuts). On the other hand, I’m more willing to volunteer my time to charities and non-profits.
