It’s been a crazy yet amazing few weeks. Learning and hearing first hand stories w/ Dallas Austin, watching LA band Dawes soundcheck prior to their performance on MBE, Q&A w/ Bomba Estereo at Red Bull, hosting How To Dress Well at Make Music Pasadena and wrapping things up w/ a Dodger game. Wheew! Big thanks to the kiddos at Global Education Academy for allowing me to hang this morning and talk about my “career”.

(more…)

Shout outs to 4th and Spring for the invite to check out some cool hidden treasures in DTLA including abandoned living areas and helipads resting high above the city, guarded by patrols. We linked up and worked our way up to a “certain building” and managed to slip through “certain obstacles” to grab these snapshots as the sun set. Check out 4th and Spring’s work here.  More snapshots on the way! Check back soon!

Yesterday after hitting up the Artist and Fleas Market I walked over to one of my favorite LA spots, the 6th Street Bridge and began taking snapshots. I have always brought friends and tourists to this area. Word is reconstruction and a possible face lift may change this landmark’s image but I wanted to capture these images that have always connected DTLA to Boyle Heights and East LA. If you ever get a chance, head below the bridge to an open walk/driveway that leads you directly to the wash.

It’s been an amazing and interesting few weeks. Had a ball at The SLS in Vegas before taking a two week break from all the residencies. Then headed over to The Crescent Ballroom in Phoenix and meeting some wonderful folks who listen to my radio show. It always amazes me when I travel and meet folks who are familiar with what I do cause in the big picture of things I truly don’t know what I am doing. Just taking pics, playing records and getting to know folks across the country. Hope you dig these snapshots. And the Grand Canyon was freaking awesome!

Every Tuesday I like to spend some time on the computer and post up my KCRW playlist and then walk on over and grab coffee. So I head over to Menotti’s and grab an almond latte. Walking over there is always an adventure along the Venice Boardwalk. I get inspired by all those strangers who travel miles and miles to walk along the path that most locals take for granted. Anyhoo, today I broke out the iPhone and snapped some shots. Totally random!

Here is this week’s look back at the adventures that went down. From KCRW’s pledge drive to being stuck on planes and observing the humanity of Vegas, it was all captured on my wonderful I phone. Follow me my Instagram for the real time adventures and also if you are on ELLO than say hello! Lastly, peep the B Day shots of Smedley as he celebrated his special with friends!

Follow me on Instagram if you wish. You really don’t have to but I must say in the past 5 weeks my life has become a roller coaster. My snapshots have become my therapy to keep me sane. I find myself in random moments asking myself “Can this be real?” and then I snap that moment! Anyhoo, hope you dig!
