How has LA changed since you have lived there?
“When I moved here the development and renaissance had already begun. That is one of the reasons I moved here, the energy of a city in the midst of growth is exciting to me. It’s an exciting time, it’s like you can feel the energy. I can feel the change when I walk down the street by the increase in pedestrians walking, residents with their families and their pets, it really affects the character of a neighborhood. There are surface changes like new buildings and parks, but the people are the real change.”
