No one is ever allowed to say that they are bored. 2) Read the newspaper; preferably lounging around in Grand Park.

30 seconds on the Mic: The park is the one place where a family can have a picnic on a Tuesday, a fitness class can happen on a Wednesday, Thursday there’s a film shoot, Friday night is for a concert under the stars, a wedding for Saturday, and on Sunday, the family returns to play catch in the park. It’s the most magical place I know, hidden in the heart of the concrete jungle that is Los Angeles.

30 seconds on the Mic: My sound is defined by syncopated percussive beats that enter your soul through colorful waves at a raising decibel and through this pressure of sound you begin to move. As you move, you enter a space that cannot be inhibited by negativity, you are in a zone. Your dance begins to speak for you and through this universal language of dance you are no longer a color, gender, size, or stereo type- you are free. Grand Park, my new home, your new green space, our soundtrack.
