People for the Planet 

Outerknown at The Point has a greater purpose of furthering the movement of eco-conscious clothing through responsible and transparent materials, sourcing and supply chain. Outerknown walks the walk. Plus, the clothes look great. The fabrics are high quality, fashionable and it just feels good to support their brand.


Let’s Get Moving

Lululemon at The Point is my favorite place to shop for athletic clothes. Technical, comfortable and tasteful. I mostly shop for workout shorts here. 

Quality Seafood

UMI by Hamasaku is fantastic! Chef Takahashi is an LA sushi legend who has been operating Hamasaku in West LA for years. If you’re local, you know all about Hamasaku; and if you don’t, you should! I order the Deluxe Sushi Mori. Fish is fresh, cuts are clean and they keep the ginger flowing!


For the Little Ones

Rabbit Ladders is a hidden gem at The Point. The owners and staff know how to create an engaging retail experience and make you feel like part of the family.


Choose Your Flavor

I’m excited for Van Leeuwen Ice Cream to open at The Point—who doesn’t love ice cream? They have classic and vegan ice creams, cookies, sundaes and milkshakes.

Face to Face: I get to interact with people who have a wide range of interests and skills. It keeps it interesting and there’s always lots to learn. I really appreciate the human interaction. Call me old fashioned, but there’s nothing like it! 

Partner in Crime: My wife is my secret weapon. She has incredible instincts, understands retail and gives me fantastic advice.
