Traversing the Valley by Bike

Traversing the Valley by Bike

Although I’m a proponent of public transportation, I’m not one of its biggest users. Still, I’m grateful for our expansive Metro routes, especially the G Line. Because running parallel to it is a 17.9 mile bike path that offers a great way to get to know the valley.

A Cape Cod with Cachet on Carroll Canal in Venice

A Cape Cod with Cachet on Carroll Canal in Venice

This home does a remarkable job of combining chic, artsy, euro and beach vibes all into one package. And considering its location, you can’t ask for something more aptly designed. If you happen to get bored with the idyllic serenity of its canal setting (some people have it so rough!), you can flip a coin and walk either the few blocks west to the beach, or the few blocks east to Abbot Kinney. And when your friends come to visit, you should probably be prepared for them to stay longer than initially planned because they won’t want to leave.

He’s sharp, engaging, and very passionate about his work – exactly the kind of person that I’d be thrilled to have leading a project for me.
