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.

Earth Day earthlings! April 21-25th

I did my bit for the earth this month. Buying some Ikea long-life bulbs (10x the life of regular bulbs), making a donation to TreePeople (organized tree planting and environmental education) and finally, buying my TerraPass carbon offset (to fund carbon reduction projects) for my Audi TT (9,000 lbs of CO2 per year for my urban driving.)

Tax man Why the enthusiasm? Hmmm, well it was tax return time this month and my software told me I was below average when it came to charitable donations in my wage may be 3-4x. So, if I want to be a good citizen and part of the 'two-percent club' I need to give away some money? Something for the environment definitely makes sense. So there...

Cupcakes and trees On the weekend there's usually a line at a store in Beverly Hills. Nope, it's not LV, Gucci or Manolo Blahnik. It's a cupcake store called Sprinkles. I hate hype so I've ignored the reviews and increasing lines, but this week I might have to buckle as TreePeople and Sprinkles have collaborated. Each tree cupcake sold gives cash to the environmental cause. So now you can be Saintly as you stuff your face!

Hope you had a good Earth Day (week.)
