Brigham Yen – @Brigham –

We are honored to introduce one of our speakers, Brigham Yen.  It was almost a no-brainer when Brigham Yen founded his “DTLA Rising” blog. After graduating from UC Berkeley in 2004, Brigham moved back down to Los Angeles and found himself enthralled by the early signs of urban revitalization happening in Downtown LA. The Downtown Center Business Improvement District soon brought him on as an economic development “gatekeeper” where for almost two years, he worked tirelessly to recruit businesses and residents to invest in Downtown LA’s resurgence. Today, Downtown LA is livelier than ever and continues to evolve into the dream that Brigham has always had for his beloved metropolis of LA. Brigham is a licensed Realtor in California and continues to “speak” loudly through his blog voicing his support for expanding mass transit and smart growth throughout Los Angeles. He’s been profiled by top local print outlets including the Los Angeles Times and was named one of The Advocate Magazine’s “40 Under 40” in 2010.

Translation: this event is a must! Join SMCLA, SMBLA, Brigham and the rest of our amazing speakers for what is sure to be an unforgettable holiday celebration. Do yourself a favor and RSVP now! Looking forward to see you!
