Growing up in Orange County, I thought of Los Angeles like the Emerald City from The Wizard of Oz, a place that sparkled with magic. After living in L.A. for 15 years, I now know there's oh-so much more here than just Tinseltown! I'm passionate about exploring the city’s lively arts and music scenes, distinctive restaurants, and quilt of ethnic enclaves and hip neighborhoods, and writing about them for outlets including the Los Angeles Times, Time Out, and Narratively.
