As many know, local businesses are important to the culture of Los Angeles. I especially love hearing stories about mom and pop owned businesses (any gender – of course)…whether it be a local restaurant, retail store, design firm, or pet sitting service. Believe me, I know just how hard you have to work when you run your own business. I started back in 2010 and the work just keeps coming…it’s a good thing that I LOVE what I do, plus I have an amazing team. If you have a story and think it’s worthy of an article. Email me at

I also write for many local newspapers, The Argonaut Newspaper, Westside Today, Downtown News, LA Weekly,…plus many online pubs as well.

We are currently accepting info on any couples who own their own business…even if it is outside of Los Angeles. We are also open to hearing from couples, artists or photographers who love to travel. The LAArtParty team is interested in interviewing you and telling your story. We may even use your photos – send us info with INTERVIEW ME in the subject line.
