Stevio...LA LA Lovin' It?

I'm British-born Chinese from Bristol, UK. I’m LA-based. I’m a hip hop aficionado. After 15 years in London I moved to LA to pursue a new career and outlook on life.

Back in the 80s I was a DJ. In the 90s I contributed to the world's first street style exhibition at London's Victoria & Albert Museum. In 2011, I had my first interviews published. Today, I’m keeping busy with music, art, photos and writing.

The best of Bristol

This city has changed a lot since I was here briefly last Christmas. Look at the development going on around Bond St./Old Market...on one side is the student housing; on the other is the new shopping complex that will house House of Fraser, Mum says. I think I would've got lost a bit without the Hertz GPS! Unrecognisable!

I was heading to see Nick in Bedminister via my first trip to Workshop, a new street fashion store on Perry Rd from the 50/50 skate shop folks. I had my T-shirt put back after spotting it's a tribute to Beat Street. It's fresh! The guys there are very relaxed and Danny has good contacts in the art world...I mean I hear Shepard 'Obey' Fairey passed through! They support local talent like Apish Angel, so I wish'em well.

Bedminister has changed too...that large housing development on York Road and North St. is finished. And believe it or not, the pub on Windmill Hill is like a gastropub now with a kiddy-friendly area (yes kids hang out in the pub in England). No racists in sight...well, not publicly anyhow!
