Join me in supporting local small business owners, designers, foodies, and the historians who celebrate the best of local Las Vegas.

I spent two years living and working in Las Vegas.  I’m obsessed with exploring places off the beaten path and what I learn from the people I meet along the way. I made friends for a lifetime in Las Vegas and it has a permanent place in my heart.

When I moved back to San Francisco I realized how many people knew nothing about Las Vegas beyond what they knew from the Strip. There are a lot of misperceptions about Las Vegas and Hello! real people live here. There is a lot to see and love about Las Vegas without ever going to the Strip.
