About the Host, Sterling
We live in the historical West Adams part of Los Angeles and are active in the historical events of this district, such as progressive dinner tours, cemetery tours and art tours. Our home has been featured on several of these tours. Sharing our home with others has been such fun. Now expanding that fun with travelers visiting Los Angeles has totally enriched our lives. We enjoy the great cultural exchange of hosting people from all parts of the world and in the process making new friends. My mom and I are both creative. I make films and have shared our home with students to make their films. My mom is a sculptor and artist whose works adorn our home. We enjoy people and whether you want privacy or society, we make sure everyone is comfortable and get the most out of their stay in Los Angeles. We have lived here for 24 years and know our way around Los Angeles, and will gladly help guide your visit in the most efficient way.
