Are you a planned or a spontaneous shopper? What’s your go-to store in Los Angeles?

I always go with the energy of the day. I love the General Store in Venice, Otherwild in Los Feliz or Days.la in East Hollywood.

What’s the one place in Los Angeles that you’re sure only you truly appreciate?

That tiny swath where the 33rd parallel bisects in Venice. Rose between Pacific and Lincoln is an electromagnetic goldmine!

What’s your dream job?

Intuitive, healing practitioner and ceramicist...and I am well on this path already!

What’s your favorite vacation city in the world and why?

Obonjan festival in Šibenik. I'm partial because I have familial roots in Croatia, but mainly the gathering of all of my favorite high vibe practitioners in the same place at the same time! Where else would you find this?

Where do you go in Los Angeles if you have two hours to kill?

Otherwild/Belljar/Sacred Light in Los Feliz or These Days in DTLA

What’s the thing you LOVE to do in Los Angeles but never actually do?

Any 9:30am class with Guru Jagat at Rama

Who’s your hero and where would you take them out for a bite or a drink in Los Angeles?

Anyone of the LA "Art Witch" tribe - Eliza Swann or Amanda Yates-Garcia (The Oracle of LA) are divine examples of high-vibe feminists, fusing art making with ancient metaphysical practices. We'd meet for a cacao or kava ceremony at the Venice Supper club.

If you were given a choice, mayor of which neighborhood in Los Angeles would you be?

Echo Park or Topanga Canyon

What’s the place in Los Angeles you’ll never be caught dead in?

West Hollywood or anywhere without any nature!

Where do you and your drinking buddies meet for a casual night out in Los Angeles?

Tucked away under the boughs of the ancient tree at Cliff's Edge in Silverlake.

Where would you go in Los Angeles to celebrate the best news EVER!?

The Pacific Seas tiki bar at Cliftons. Or really any "old man" or Old Hollywood-esque hotel bar

It’s a Saturday night and the mood is right - where do you go in Los Angeles to party?

You're probably going to find me on summer nights on the Cinefamily patio.

It’s your last day in Los Angeles - how do you spend your time?

At Desert Magic Music Meditation at Yogala in Echo Park
