The art of finessing with DJ Luna

A few weeks ago, I hung out with budding DJ and big-time Wale fan and friend, DJ Luna, also known as Mikaela Sorina. I asked her a few questions and hung out with her at “The Art of Finessing” event at Footsoldiers Wynwood as she disc jockeyed for the first time. Here’s what I learned and saw.

Cycle 305 – Episode 1: The Bike

Hello everyone! I’m starting a new series called Cycle 305 where I’m going to take you with me on a bunch of bicycle rides that I do regularly – everything from going to work to hanging out with friends – as well as talk to you about the subtleties of the bicycle lifestyle and how they’ve impacted my life.
