Hello, readers! My name is Arin Mikailian and I'm the new editor of Echo Park-Silver Lake Patch. I come to you from Calabasas Patch and North Hollywood-Toluca Lake Patch.
Echo Park and Silver Lake are vibrant communities bristling with great stories and I look forward to bringing you news about them every day.
I'm a Glendale native so I didn't grow up too far away and have admired the neighborhoods over the years for its ever-growing foodie and craft beer scenes.
My first ever part-time job during college was on Temple Street just blocks away from Echo Park Lake so I've been cruising through the neighborhood for quite some time.
But I know there's so much more I have to learn about these two towns.
I look forward to walking the streets more, exploring businesses and most of all, meeting local residents. Feel free to say hello if you ever see me around town.
When not immersed in the world of journalism, I like spending time with my friends, enjoying an excellent craft beer or going on a road trip.
Hope to meet you soon!
