About Jaded LA

About Jaded LAIn my early teen years, I started ripping out inspirational pictures from magazines and began collecting them, which led to what I thought was a healthy obsession with fashion.

Fast forward to being 18 and graduating from high school in Florida…. My mind was dead set on NYC, so I ended up moving there a week after 9/11. It’s where I truly believe life began for me, which is why NYC will always have a special place in my heart.

I’ve had many chapters in my life, which have now landed me in Downtown LA.  The second I arrived, I fell in LOVE with this ever-changing city!  I’ve been living here almost 6 years and I feel insanely lucky to be part of it.  I live in the Historic Core and I have to say, it’s been truly fascinating to see this city grow from the inside out. There’s always something crazy and unpredictable on the streets of Downtown LA, and it doesn’t get more real than that!

Fast forward to why I started this site….

Welcome to the badass world of Jaded LA! My vision offers a refreshing take on the way we see the future of fashion! Jaded LA is about finding a new way to get inspired by the fact that we’ve pretty much seen it all and done it all.  It’s about taking all the bad shit we know and have learned throughout life and using it as fuel to get inspired! I live on the edge, and I make sure that comes across in every photoshoot I do.

… You may have to jump a few fences, but I hope to see you along for the ride!

With tons of passion for Downtown LA,
