Had a long day at the office? Exhausted from working on back to back on projects, been on trips for so long that you come back completely burnt out? Need a day just to yourself and your significant other? Sure, you can go to dinner and/or head to the beach for some fun in the sun, but if you're really looking for the best way to unwind, I suggest spending the day at the Montage in Beverly Hills.Read More
The majority of my favorite moments in my life are undocumented, and while I sometimes regret not capturing those times, it's probably best that it lives in my head versus on the Internet.

30 years later and I finally get the birthday party I've always wanted! Growing up, my birthday celebrations were small and only included family members - all 5 of them.

Anyone else's parents like to scare the shit out of you before you travel?Read More
Growing up, I've dealt with a lot of bullying and depression. Many of my friends also dealt with suicide, I know people who have tried to commit it, and I know of a few people who committed. I, myself, have contemplated suicide many times and have dealt with depression on and off. There isn't a real way to explain what you go through, what you're thinking at the time, but I remember the pain you feel. You zone out, nothing around you matters anymore, and you feel empty inside.
