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.

What is happening to England?!

Knife culture is killing the youth!

I've generally felt safer in LA than anywhere else I've lived. Does that sound weird considering with all the guns, gangs and skidrow? It's petty crime and casual violence in the UK that makes me say this.

In the run up to Christmas the news coming out of the UK continues to shock and sadden me: "A 16-year-old boy stabbed to death in a mass brawl has been named by police"! This happened a few miles from Holloway, north London where I lived?! Here, in my LA neighborhood I don't even worry about someone stealing my eBay packages from my doorstep! Seriously.

What's England going to be like when I return?
