He is a professional illustrator whose work has appeared in publications such as the New York Times and has been shown in art galleries.

WOODLAND HILLS - Both the Flintridge Prep boys' and girls' cross-country teams entered Saturday morning's Prep League championships at Los Angeles Pierce College with similar, yet strikingly different goals. Even though both pined for a Prep League title, it was the boys who proved themselves steady again in defending their crown with ease, while the girls narrowly avoided being upset in finishing second overall. "We are a very hard-working team and I think the guys are starting to finally realize that they are a really good team," Flintridge Prep Coach Ingrid Herskind said.

WOODLAND HILLS - There certainly were lessons learned and insights gained by the Providence High boys' basketball team in Saturday afternoon's second day of the War on the Floor Showcase at Los Angeles Pierce College. The Pioneers played with little practice, even less rest and no superstar in reigning All-Area Player of the Year Marcus LoVett Jr., and yet gained a big helping of confidence after a 51-40 victory over Canoga Park in the final game of pool play. "During summer, it's just about learning the new system because we have a lot of new guys," Pioneers Coach Ernest Baskerville said.

WOODLAND HILLS - It's often been said that one of the benefits of participating in summer league basketball for a prospective team is an opportunity to see an array of different squads and coaching styles. For the Renaissance Academy boys' basketball team, though, playing in Saturday's second day of the War on the Floor Showcase at Los Angeles Pierce College presented the chance for a small Wildcats squad to showcase its own talents. Six-man Renaissance, which was missing three players due to transfer, continued to impress in holding off Los Angeles City Section Dorsey High, 49-41, in Saturday afternoon's pool play finale.

WOODLAND HILLS — Besant Hill took control of the game early and handed Renaissance Academy a 52-46 loss at the War on the Floor Invitational at El Camino Real High on Saturday morning, but the Wildcats’ furious fourth-quarter rally gave the Coyotes something to think about should these CIF Southern Section Division 5A opponents meet again in the postseason. Led by 10 fourth-quarter points from senior guards Dushon Carter and six from Brian Bourgeois, the Wildcats, who were without starting Gil Tacita due to a knee injury sustained in practice, rallied from a double-digit deficit to make it a two-point game with 2:00 left.
