This is what summer sounds like.

It didn’t take long for me to fall in love with Flood Coats, a new indietronic project from San Diego’s Joel P West and Darla Hawn. Both are absolutely brilliant and their sound is as infectious as they are musicians. Their new video, Parch My Heart sure tastes like summer with endless palm trees, slick rollerblading moves and sun-kissed shorts.  I can’t help but smile and hit repeat.

My neighborhood guide to San Francisco

After nearly 3 years of living in San Francisco, I’ve learned that the tech scene is only a small part of what makes this city special. To me, it is and always will be about the beautiful scenery, diversity of people and local independent businesses that build community and make me feel alive. It was tough to choose just 15 places and these might not be on anyone else’s best of lists, but here’s a neighborhood guide to some of my favorite spots in the city.
