I’ve known LA for years from running in similar circles and she’s always been an eloquent Queen. That’s why it was incredible to find her ‘waxing poetic’ on IG lives. In these spaces we get a front row seat to her intelligence and beauty. She guides interviews with ease, her skills on full display. I’m a fan.
