About the author

Born and raised in LA, Rachel has pretty much been obsessed with Venice all her life. Seriously. When she's not busting a move (and knocking into the pool table) at Townhouse she can be found riding her bike or struggling on her longboard somewhere in the vicinity of Abbot Kinney. She generally prefers SPF 30 or higher.


  1. Hi Adam –

    I wanted to touch base on an event we’re working on to see if you would be interested in covering. HoodieBuddie (hoodies w/ machine washable earbuds built into the drawsrings and an Ipod input jack in the pocket) is hosting a kick-off party for their HoodieCollab™ partnership with Juxtapoz Magazine on Friday 11/4 at the AK1511 space on Abbot Kinney.

    Five featured artists- Hannah Stouffer, Skinner, Sterling Bartlett, Cat Cult, and SPRFKR – will create custom HoodieBuddie designs depicting their “hood,” which will be auctioned off for the Save The Music Foundation. What’s more, this launch also kicks off the Re[Cycle] Your Hoodie program, wherein every hoodie donated to the Goodwill silo (via stationary bike conveyor belt – see below) will earn a discount on a new HoodieBuddie.

    I’d absolutely love to have you at the event. I’ve attached the invite here; hopefully your schedule permits and you are able to make it!
