I'm a native angeleno, born and raised. I've lived a variety of other places, including overseas (Spain and Italy, but a long time ago so my Italian is very rusty, che peccato....) But I ended up back here in my ancestral homeland about 15 years ago and I've enjoyed getting to know it really, really well. Basically, I love to be a tourist wherever I live, so it's lucky I live in such a great city! LA is a fabulous place to live because there is such an endless amount to do and see, and I am fortunate to live in one of the most convenient parts of the city. I love to hike, cycle, go to art galleries and museums, check out other cultural events and festivals, try new restaurants, and generally explore different neighborhoods. I have a weakness for dogs, flea markets, and home grown veggies. Which, by the way, grow all over the yard, front and back.
