Los Angeles, a nice place to visit, and an even nicer place to leave (just kidding). After 5 years in LA and a high school experience that I could only describe as deeply challenging, I had mixed feelings about moving back to Australia. Endless freeways woven through a complex cultural fabric, there was always something new to do and see in LA. My first car gave me the autonomy to explore it all, and some of my fondest memories are of driving with the sunroof open on a cool night, heater on my feet, with Massive Attack blaring on the radio. It was in LA that conversations with my dad awoke an interest in design, and as a teenager I was lucky enough to be able to wander the hallways of the ArtCenter College of Design in awe of what was being created.
