My lifelong passions revolve around travel, exploration, hospitality, research, spicy food, unique lifestyles and philosophies. My earliest memories are of exposure to foreign cultures and cuisines at exotic often kitsch Los Angeles establishments. I hold a BA in Anthropology from UC Irvine and have lived, studied and immersed myself in cultures around the globe. I have traveled to over 53 countries with a focus on developing nations. I am continually embraced, enlightened and supported by locals and fellow travelers alike. A native of Los Angeles, one of the most diverse cities on the planet, I am passionate about digging deep into ethnic enclaves and sharing insights and discoveries with my readers.
