Having lived in LA for over 25 years, Leila knows (almost) every hidden gem and secret spot in the City of Angels. She was the Senior LA Marketing Manager for Eventbrite for nearly 5 years and naturally, became an avid ticket collector. She quickly discovered her passion for live experiences -- both attending and producing them.

As the face of Eventbrite LA and the trusted source for the local scene, Leila curated and produced local content and was part of the team that launched the digital publication, Rally. Her work has also been featured in LA Confidential Magazine, Focus Magazine, The LA Fashion magazine and she's currently the City Editor, LA at Gogobot and a contributing writer at AXS.com and Time Out Los Angeles.

Leila graduated UCLA with a Bachelors of Science in Anthropology in 2005 and later earned her MBA with an emphasis in marketing from Loyola Marymount University. When she's not out and about, you can find Leila on a bike at SoulCycle, in the kitchen testing out a new Barefoot Contessa recipe or front row at a concert.
