It's no secret San Diego has the best weather. Each month we ask one of our favorite San Diegans:

What else makes this city great?

If you’re not from here, when did you move here and why?

I moved here 9 years ago in pursuit of sunshine and a college degree. Like any confused teenager who hasn’t found themselves yet, I was looking for the perfect place far from home to do just that. I’d never been to San Diego before the day I moved here, but in my mind it was heaven on Earth and, it turns out, it is.

Why do you continue to call San Diego home (Besides the Weather)?

Since launching Elle Communications a few years ago, this city has also proven to be incredibly supportive of young entrepreneurs and, for that, I am eternally appreciative. I opened a second office in LA last summer and spend three days a week in the hustle and bustle of that great big city, but every Saturday morning I fall in love with San Diego all over again as I head back down South on the Surfliner. I’m quite sure that there is no better way to spend a weekend than Coronado Dog Beach, garden projects in my yard, Urban Solace or Farmhouse dinners and Sunday morning at the Hillcrest Farmer’s Market topped with a Joe’s on the Nose Aloha Latte.
