What about DTLA inspires you the most?
Downtown has always inspired me in so many ways, that's why I had to live there at least once in my life. I have lived all over LA from the Westside in Santa Monica to the Eastside in Downtown. Unlike the Westside, I was much more inspired in DTLA by the people I met and the cultures I was surrounded by. There is street art all over the city, and of course historic skateboard spots!
What is your favorite thing about being in DTLA?
My favorite thing about being in DTLA is jumping on my skateboard and having everything I need a few pushes away. From my favorite coffee shops, bars, and restaurants to the fashion district. Skating through traffic, stressed out drivers, and fruit stands doesn't get any better.
Your favorite place to skate in DTLA?
My favorite place to skate in Downtown is simply downtown. Since the city is always under construction developing new high-rises, apartments, and parks makes it easy to discover new terrain all the time.
What is your go-to spot in DTLA?
Now that's a hard one... Well when it comes to coffee it's il Cafe. For home stuff definitely hit Formerly Yes and for bars you can catch me at Coles or Golden Gopher.
What are your go-to style essentials?
Always with the baseball cap, sunnies, ripped denim, and slip on shoes.
Whose closet would you raid?
Probably Eddie Huang!
