Executive Director of the
LA County Bicycle Coalition

Event: Biking in LA x Bridging the Gap


Eli has been a bike commuter since grade school, and always prefers to get to know the place he lives on two wheels. He has over a decade of leadership experience with stints as a chief communicator and program lead at Film Independent, GOOD, and River LA. Most recently, he worked at Swell Creative Group where he helped produce a successful campaign to pass Measure W, LA County’s Safe, Clean Water Program. Eli is excited to join the LACBC team to create a more bikeable and people-centric city.
