What's your favorite taco?
Shrimp Tacos Dorados by far my favorite! I'm Always on the hunt for the west coast staple... With the goal to find the serious authentic "truth"! Trucks & hidden joints I've been to are in Norwalk & Boyle heights... Ummmm with perfectly spiced/seasoned shrimp & herbs & avocado & cream... All about that sauce!

Do you have a favorite unknown/obscure part of LA?
I consider Griffith Park to be a obscure place because I've discovered so many hidden spots in this urban park from training all 6 marathons I've completed in. That's my meditation place... Where I'd like my ashes scattered when I leave my physical body. It's a never ending beauty-- LA should take advantage of! Up to you to find it!

Do you have a favorite club or party to play?
Favorite party? Funkmosphere.

Roy Ayers or Herbie Hancock?
At first I thought Herbie Hancock but I changed my mind. Roy Ayers.. On so many levels... "programmed for love" made me feel like the sexiest woman alive.

What's your "go to" record to rock a party right now?
My favorite " go to " record will always be One Way's "lets get together" 12". It'll never get old for me. But then again I When I DJ, I play whatever I want to hear... But always thinking about the poppers, funksters, gangsters, 2 steppers...

Who's your favorite (visual) artist?
Estevan Oriol. I especially dig graf but so many artists to name!!!

Do you have a lucky number?
Lucky number 27 - cause growing up in class I was always on roll call sheet #27
