About Nina


I’m a twenty-something-year-old female who is eating, hiking, and Uber/Lyfting her way through L.A.’s gastronomy, nature, fashion, and cultural scenes. Discovering cheap eats and hidden gems in the City of Angels is my jam, though I just as much enjoy staying at home to perfect my cooking/plating skills, too. (You can never have too many epic gourmet breakfast recipes, am I right?)

When I’m not grubbing at my neighborhood sushi spot, hiking through the hills of Griffith Park, or taking over my tiny kitchen to try that crazy new recipe I found on foodgawker, you can find me handling the logistics for a streetwear fashion company, figuring out how to make crazy creative types’ dreams become a reality. Some call the work creatively stifling; I call it a new opportunity to approach non-creative work, creatively.

As far as my writing perspective goes, my brain floats somewhere between right and left. I very often walk the line between creative and analytical, and I’m hoping to incorporate that strange sense of abstract articulation into each piece I share with you. Expect to see lots of pieces on lifestyle changes, food appreciation, random musical thoughts, and awkward fashion moments from me in the very near future.

What’s on Nina’s desk?
