Cody Lovaas

I first picked up a guitar when I was seven years old. By the age of twelve, I was writing songs, singing, and performing at coffee shops and open mics all around San Diego (my home town). I went to one of my open mic spots on a random Tuesday night and Jason Mraz happened to be there. Read more>>

Betty Fraser, Denise DeCarlo

Denise and I were waitresses together at a well known pizza joint, and we weren’t loving it. We knew we had a passion for cooking but without much capital we didn’t know how we would get from point A to point B and get out of these waitress clothes and into a chef jacket. Read more>>

Allyson Alberto

My unforeseen call to education and then eventually to leadership began as a child. Who would have known that this little girl who didn’t speak a wink of English from the inner-city Bay Area would be called to social justice leadership? My first day of Kindergarten was miserable! Read more>>

Elizabeth Belkind

I began my career as a prep cook at Campanile Restaurant. I had the distinct honor of working alongside Roxana Jullapat (now Chef/owner of Friends and Family in Los Feliz) who was then a pastry line cook at Campanile. While I labored at the stoves, stinking of veal bones and lobster stock, I would watch her plating Nancy Silverton’s gorgeous desserts. Read more>>

Barbara Howlin

Thinking back on it now, it would have been so easy not to start! I had a lot of fear. The first audition that came up in middle school was a day full of tests and homework. I was such a perfectionist that I told myself I had no time to memorize or do the audition. Read more>>

James Barren

Not sure how brief I can make my story, which began 24 years ago in 1995 as a junior in high school at Harvard-Westlake; where and when I had my first taste of event planning and party promotions. To give you some background, this is also around the time when I bloomed in the “cool kid” popular scene (LOL). Read more>>

Lauren Bertoni

I started performing when I was a child. Putting together performances for my parents dinner parties or an evening street show with my beach friends during the summer. One of our most famouse beach performances was to the song foot loose where we used blow up musical instruments along with stellar choreography to entertain the beach patrons walking home from a long day playing in the surf and sand.

Angel Lin

I got contacted on MySpace by a student photographer who wanted me to model for one of his projects. I had no experience with modeling and never really thought of pursuing it at all. I thought, why not? I had so much fun at the shoot that I decided to keep going with it. Read more>>
