Gold Coast is a conversation between the two of us about our experiences growing up, and living on the West Coast as adults, and specifically in California.

It’s a place where many people come to turn their dreams into reality, to become superstars, rock stars, tech stars, etc. etc.  But it also has a vibe of eternal sunshine, pot smoking hippies, yoga, board shorts, hipsters, and lazy vacation style living.
