Carlton Davis is a graduate of Yale University and the University of London. In his private architectural practice, he designed the North Hollywood Subway Station for Los Angeles’ MTA Red Line, the headquarters of the Los Angeles Mission for the Homeless, and several renovations of hotels. He was also a lecturer in architecture at UCLA, and an assistant professor at the University of Wyoming, and is well-known for his writing in art and architecture periodicals. Mr. Davis has accomplished these impressive tasks while also fighting mental illness. In his book, Bipolar Bare, he chronicles his life story with Bipolar Disorder – how it first manifested, the resulting addictions into which he was pulled, and how he finally found recovery. Now, as an articulate and inspiring advocate for the mentally ill, he speaks to groups bringing insight, compassion, and a dose of reality as someone who has “been there,” to the complicated issues that challenge individuals, families, and society’s systems.
