Meet Tyler Hakomori, the Newest Editor of Streetsblog LITE

For the next couple of months, you might notice a difference at Streetsblog LITE. For the first time since last summer, we have a volunteer intern who will be running our tumblr…so say hello to Tyler Hakomori.

Tyler is a rising senior at Santa Monica High School. He is an avid cyclist, runner, and tennis player, who has ridden his bike for both transportation and recreation as a member of Velo Club La Grange. He hopes that, through his interaction with Streetsblog, he will learn more about what it takes to be an activist in the current social and political climate.

For those of you that haven’t checked out Streetsblog LITE again, it’s a great place to see the pictures, images and videos created for Streetsblog and by the groups that we regularly cover without all the boring text I write around them. LITE was founded by Veronica Hernandez, who interned with us last summer and also completed a project examining the growing bicycling network in Downtown Los Angeles.

If you have a suggestion for us to publish on LITE, send you suggestion to or send a message via twitter @streetsblogla.
