She  drove to Los Angeles at the age of twenty four and recalls, "I saw the city sprawled out in front of me, looking like a great big field full of diamonds. When I saw that almost mind-numbing beauty in front of me, I knew that one chapter of my life was done and another was beginning.” Today she is a  living embodiment of LA’s culture and diversity,  and assembles one of America’s largest, most diverse and culturally thrilling city festivals.
