Born and raised on the beaches of Los Angeles, Alissa has always loved travel and the stories it brings (like accidentally driving a rental car down a dirt bike track in Barbados.) In between diving trips to the Middle East and Pacific, and enjoying the hidden gems of LA, Alissa did find some time to hit the books and get a history degree; because after all, there are few degrees more suited to the twenty-first century than history. When she’s not catching some new music in Los Feliz, or catching some waves in Venice, Alissa is rolling through LA, showcasing the best of the city. Dishing out a local’s perspective on everything, from tinsel town and LA’s secret history, to the hottest bars on Abbot Kinney and the best spots for live music. Because if there’s anything she’s learned from her adventures abroad, when in doubt, ask a local.
