Trader Joe’s, USC Village, Los Angeles, CA USC

Trading Cheap

How many broken TV’s does it take to create an integrated TV display wall? Too many! All jokes aside, setting up our new retail location at USC was a feat that took many hands many hours. Hot heat, cramped spaces, bright ideas and a low budget – that’s how our buildout went at USC. And […]

Monarch Beach Resort, Dana Point, CA USA

Moist Chicken

What’s the best 5 star resort within driving distance of LA? That question has several answers with many opinions.

Rachel was staying for another week and loves soba for breakfast; I was running around trying to get everything sorted before my flight home… a nice relaxing Japanese meal […]

Suiran, Kyoto, Japan

Japanese Escapism

Soooooo much sightseeing. Our feet were aching from miles and miles of walking through the narrow streets of Kyoto. Halfway through our trip and at least 12 solid Japanese meals in, my body (and mind) needed something satisfying in a different way. Our first day away from Hokkaido, I used points to book us at […]
