Hyped to share my first video for @Spotify in which I was on set for. I wrote the interview questions highlighting @flexgoddaps, who's Quality Control (@Migos) video "Too Hotty" was featured on #RapCaviar's Sight & Sound. I also had the great privilege of interviewing DAPS for this stylized doc, learning more about his creative process and what it is like working with one of my favorite rap groups.

This is @erinzulie—one of my best friends and one of the smartest women in Los Angeles. She's also co-curating the Made in LA Biennial at @hammer_museum. We met 2.5 years ago and haven't stopped laughing, clowning, and wylin since. If you could only hear the stuff we say! I have thousands of photos of us in my phone and not enough on my Instagram. Last night Erin invited me to the @regenprojects opening for Gary Simmons and I met @Ricky_Martin (on my #instagramstories), making a Latinx childhood dream of mine come true. Everything we do together is a fucking blast and I cannot even imagine what I'd do without this woman. Consider yourself blessed if you have a friendship like ours.

On this trip to Arizona I made it a priority to return to @fnbrestaurant so that I could try their Winter 2017 Menu, in which I enjoyed some delicious butternut squash and Middle Eastern eggplant. On my last trip in Scottsdale I was blown away by FnB's Spring dinner menu (photographed here), particularly the plant based options which are gathered from local farms. Although it was too dark to capture the Winter dishes, this spread exemplifies exactly what's popping off here in Arizona—don't sleep on this Southwest state!

I made it a personal goal to see every #JamesTurrell art work, both publicly & privately owned. His Skyspaces are some of my favorite architectural manifestations to experience; this installation, entitled Air Apparent, is open 24/7 to the public, free, and is located next to the Science and Technology Building 4 on the campus of @arizonastateuniversity.

Arcosanti is one of the coolest places I have ever had the pleasure of experiencing. This experimental space & architectural masterpiece was built in the 1970s just an hour North of Phoenix, #Arizona and if you appreciate genius design like I do, add @arcosantiarizona to your travel list. #WHPfindthelight

Back in the states and reflecting on what an amazing trip I had in Guadalajara, Mexico. I made some amazing friends (@martypreciado @erecervera @aleks_martinez), ate nothing but incredible food (this salmon from @restaurante_casa_luna) and enjoyed every moment sipping @donjuliotequila. I am already planning on returning! #NJinGDL

During my stay at @demetriahotel I attended the opening for the hotel's art fair like I was part of the Guadalajara scene. One of the things I love most about this city is the amount of art I see in public spaces, which I believe is critical to culture. Painting by Andreas Díaz Andersson.

The most beautiful artwork I've ever seen, painted by the genius José Clemente Orozco. Named a World Heritage Site, this is a must see for anyone who appreciates fine art. I was moved to tears standing under "The Man of Fire" frescoe.

I love to travel not only to experience beautiful places & spaces, but to expand my creative references and processes. I want to experience as much as I can so that I may create things most people haven't seen before. Unique, smart, and fresh—that's all I'm interested in these days.

Did you know a fine tequila is best sipped from a Champagne flute or Cognac glass? The rare moments in which I drink alcohol, it has to be a quality experience. I sat down for a proper tequila tasting with @donjuliotequila at the home of #DonJulio to learn the language of my favorite spirit after mezcal, and it delights me to say they schooled my ass. I learned about quality, distillation, aging, drinking techniques & many other fascinating things. Now pour me some 1942 to show that you really love me.

Award winning Hueso is one of the best designed restaurants in the world and also one of my top meals of the year. Grateful that @donjuliotequila put me on—it's interior is covered by bones, inspired by Darwin and the texture of huesos (bones). If I lived in Guadalajara, I would be at @hueso_restaurante often.

Always looking for the most beautiful spaces and faces while traveling the world. & @casafayette in Guadalajara, Mexico is now one of my favorite hotels for its impeccable design. Another gem by @grupphabita, designed by Estudio 5.

Spending Día de los Muertos in Tlaquepaque, Mexico is something I won't ever forget. Marigolds everywhere and an incredible @donjuliotequila lunch at Casa Luna.

Started my day with @donjuliotequila in the blue agave hills of Atotonilco, Mexico learning about the history of tequila y it's cultivation. This is Benjamín Chavéz who works in the field with his father Pedro.
