Life is all about experiences.


First, hello and thank you for finding My Modern Metropolis. Welcome! It's a pleasure having you here. Hope you make yourself comfortable.

Who Am I?
Let's see, I'm a girl who had a dream. I wanted to create an open, friendly environment where we could share our experiences. I wanted it to be a global community where we could learn from each other...where we could connect over our stories.

My Background?
I'm a UCLA alum who worked in advertising sales for MTV. I've always been into spotting trends and seeing them take off. I'm lucky enough to now do that as my full-time job. I'm also an aspiring photographer.

What Do I Write About?
I'm a huge fan of art, design and photography. I think creativity exists in every one of us and I love showing that to the world. Though I'm particularly fond of street art and pop surrealism, I love anything that pushes boundaries. You'll notice that I put together a lot of photo compilations. More than anything, I love uncovering the stories (or the passion) behind them.

Here's my blog on theMET.

Thanks for dropping by. Hope you'll stick around. :)

The Sweet Relationship Between a Farmer and His Pigs

Over the course of ten years, Kagawa-based photographer Toshiteru Yamaji captured the special bond between Japanese pig farmer Otchan and his 1,200 pigs. As you can tell by these photos, he cared for each individual pig in a loving and caring way. In Yamaji's book Pigs and Papa, watch as the cigarette smoking, beer drinking man becomes like their proud papa as he reads…

Awesome website!! I subscribe to a ton of art websites (various mediums) and I have to say that My Modern Met is my favourite of them all. I have recommended this site to all my friends. I am so excited to live in this age of creativity and art, where current artists express their art in ways not imagined before. And your website collates this from different parts of the globe and makes it so accessible. Thank you for doing a great job of providing inspiration and art appreciation.
