I like L.A. so far. I decided to change my parka
for some shorts coming from Chicago. I love palm
trees and sunsets and you get really beautiful
cotton-candy-colored sunsets over here. I’ve never
been to L.A. but there was just something that was
calling me out here. I just always felt, from a few
years back, that I was meant to come to L.A. I don’t
know if it’s forever or for a period of time but it’s
definitely something that I’m glad is happening.

Why I love L.A.? Oh my gosh, there’s so many reasons.
I love that there is a lot of different people. And I love
this weather. I love this — you know — vibe of this city,
of this place. It’s so many things!  But I have a feeling
that my place is here. I can’t really say why I love L.A.,
I just have this feeling!

I was born and raised in Los Angeles.
I love this place because we have places like
Mosaic [Church] where we can be ourselves, and
Hollywood and Los Angeles in general are so diverse
and you meet so many interesting people.

I love L.A. but I’m mainly form Long Beach, California;
that’s one of the cities of L.A. county.
Matter o’ fact, the biggest city in L.A. county — border
wise. You got right here where I work, Venice Beach;
it’s never a boring moment here. Then you got
Santa Monica next door with the boardwalk and the
pier. Then you got Hollywood. I mean, it’s so much.
I was raised in Long Beach. I live in Anaheim right now.
I’ve been out there three years but I lived out here too.
Everything is out here. But I’m in an older mood so
that should probably put me in Georgia or
something like that. The prices are a little bit better
as far as retirement but it’s hard to move from here.
There’s so much to do! So many places you can go.
You got Universal Studios; you got Studio City;
you got Universal City; you have Carson; you have
Compton; you got Long Beach; you got Inglewood
and every city has something. And the diversity of
people. That’s the main reason: the culture. This
would be the place you wanna meet the different
cultures and most of us get along — I can’t speak for
everybody else but my experience.
Especially right here in Venice.
