During the summer of 2015, I opened up my house to a group of young creatives who were new to Venice, CA. They had moved to Los Angeles to pursue music and needed a place to crash.
Having recently moved to Venice from the Pacific Northwest myself, I knew that it didn't feel good to show-up in LA not knowing anybody and wanted to help. Giving away couches soon turned to hosting community events so new-comers could make friends and share their music with a supportive audience.
In February 2016, we made a logo and called ourselves WINSTON HOUSE, named after my childhood dog. The idea was to create a brand that represented the best of people that were brave enough to leave their homes to pursue a dream in Los Angeles.
Later in 2016 and 2017, WINSTON HOUSE started to become known for our weekly music series called HOUSE SHOW! and for creating a new music scene in Venice Beach, California.
In 2018, we're expanding on our mission and capabilities to be a world-class entertainment brand, creating initiatives that not only entertain, but bring people closer together and move humanity forward.

We host a growing number of events in Venice Beach, CA, and around the world.
