Come take a listen to my recent appearance on BlogTalkRadio!
I was interviewed about my experience as the on-camera host of a new video series and ebook (coming out soon) called, Travel the Local Way. In my segments, I show the viewers around Los Angeles from my local perspective. We shot at El Matador Beach, hiking with The Tree People, shopping in WeHo, dining in downtown, and so much more. It was a blast to shoot! (Continue reading…)
When I was going to the University of Southern California, I lived in downtown Los Angeles. At the time, the area was just starting to undergo a revival. There were a few new restaurants and bars popping up. Old warehouses and office buildings were beginning to be converted into lofts.
I haven’t spent much time downtown since my college years, so when I hung out there over the last couple weeks, it was really fun to see how far it has come. I would definitely recommend checking it out if you are in LA – especially the Art District.
Despite all the new additions, I couldn’t help but to revisit one of my favorite places that hasn’t changed much for decades. And that’s the Grand Central Market.

Los Angeles is the land of hidden gems where so many great experiences are cached within its intimidating urban sprawl. As a visitor, exploring the city can be harder in LA than in other cities. And it is best to plan out your days around specific activities in localized neighborhoods.
Malibu is a wonderful part of LA to choose to spend the day. While you are there you may want to check out El Matador Beach – a beach just off the beaten path.
Back during my final semester of college, I was living in Paris with a host family. Within the first month of being there, one of their daughters, Mathilde, asked me if I’d join her and her friends for dinner. Elated that I’d be included in a real French gathering, I accepted.
She said everyone would be coming from work, so I shouldn’t dress up too much. But there would be about 15 people at dinner. I thought, “where could you go with 15 people for dinner?” In any case, I figured it would be fun and I’d make a bunch of new friends.
Little did I know, that dinner would initiate a chain of unexpected events and subsequently change the course of my life.(Continue reading…)
