The Getty Villa

Modern Antiquity

Finally had the chance to visit the The Getty Villa over the weekend and it’s definitely worth it’s weight in gold. From the ornate structures modeled after Herculaneum Italy to artifacts dating back from 6,500 BC to the turn of the century, it’s almost if you’ve been transported through a time capsule. If you’re a history buff, you won’t be dissappointed.

Admission is free with onsite parking for $15-$20, depending on the day and time. Click here to reserve a spot.

First trip to africa- Ghana


Remembering my trip Ghana. An incredible journey…

At the time, my mom had been going to Ghana for 10 years straight, working with a women’s collective in Tamale to source shea butter and help create more opportunities for economic empowerment. So as you can imagine, she was the perfect guide. Also, allowed me to really let go of any westerner norms or beliefs systems and get fully immersed in the culture.

Throughout the trip I photographed often, and was immediately drawn to the children, who showed a jubilant innocence that immediately caught my eye. Some of the kids posed for the camera, and others were snapped in the grace of the moment, showing the bond between father and son.

ComplexCon 2018 - LBC

Curated by: Pharrell x Takashi

Back at ComplexCon for the second straight year, and once again, it lived up to expectations. From brand activations to panel discussions with trailblazers- Nas, Lena Waithe, Virgil Abloh and more. Even got to say what’s up to Grant Hill in passing, who was there representing for FILA, promoting his limited-edition, retro shoes and apparel. But with all the fan fare and celebrity sitings, it was the people who attended the third annual the ComplexCon who really showed out, fitted from head to tow.

I remember purchasing Complex Magazine years ago. They always had a fresh perspective on pop music, street art and sneaker culture, but today there so much more. Incredible to witness their transformation from print media to curating live experiences. On to the next…
