Jenna Chandler is the editor of Curbed LA. She oversees the site's editorial operations and writes about housing and density. Before joining Curbed in 2016, she was a staff writer at the Orange County Register, a senior local editor at Patch, and a reporter for the Porterville Recorder in California's San Joaquin Valley. Raised in the sunshine of Los Angeles and Orange counties, she always puts "the" in front of freeway names (but never before PCH). She has lived in Long Beach and Santa Monica; today she lives between Pailin Thai Cuisine and Griffith Park.
