Communications Catalyst

Bridges is a start-up mission agency that equips missional leaders to develop hyper-contextual ministries where they live, work, and play. I catalyze and oversee their communications to diverse stakeholders both inside and outside the church. Web, Social Media, Video, PR, Content Development, etc. See: 


2008 - Present

Missional Community-Builder

I sit at the cafe. I smile at people. People smile at me. Soon, as God has space to show himself, our hopes and fears, failures and successes are shared. The relationships spill out of the cafe into birthday parties, rides to the airport, service to neighbors, and phone calls. After 7 years of this, hundreds of Atwater Village locals have formed a loose but organic network of authentic community, radiating from interactions begun over lattes. I'm proud and grateful to be raising my son amidst such an amazingly diverse "framily." And I'm excited about equipping others to build relationships in the places they've already been sent.

Cat Moore Art & Events

2008 - Present

Writer, Artist, Event Director

Like everyone else in LA, I blog. I write short, visual pieces about parenting, relationships, God, and self-image ... in an Anne Lamott meets Punky Brewster tone. My art spans photography, illustration, painting, paper goods, and mashed potato sculptures. I've also instigated local art, music, and education markets as an avenue to support local artists and businesses and build community. My favorite part of these events is live, participatory art that involves both people who consider themselves artists and those who've never held a paintbrush.

2005 - 2008

Applied Philosopher/Researcher

I observed, analyzed, and reported on leadership development, relational health, and character across all levels of the school district. This investigation necessitated the pioneering of non-existent research methodologies, creating new reporting mediums, and consulting literature and experts from fields as diverse as psychology, business, poetry, and ethics. Findings were adopted by division management to inform the contextualization of all phases of the research process.


2009 - Present


I work with God to raise my energetic, creative, sweet, and funny son, Noah. This is by far the hardest, most important, and best-paying of any job I've ever had. 



Dallas Willard

2001 - 2011


I tagged along beside USC Philosophy Professor, Dallas Willard, for ten years learning about Jesus, the Kingdom of God, and how to be a good person. I also assisted him in developing a book called Professions and the Public Good in American Life.
