Kayte Deioma is an internationally published travel photographer and writer based in the Los Angeles area. She enjoys sharing the best of LA with friends and family and other visitors almost as much as she enjoys exploring the rest of the world. When she's not on the road, she's publishing the online travel magazine www.RainyDayTraveler.com. You can also see more of her travel photos at www.KayteDeioma.com.
Kayte grew up in Ohio, then lived and worked in Spain, Mexico and Germany before settling in Southern CA. She also continues to travel extensively to other countries and US cities, so she knows what visitors need to know when they are traveling away from home. She has lived all over the Los Angeles area and plays tour guide to a constant stream of visiting friends and family from around the world.
Kayte has a BA in Communications with a minor in Journalism from the University of Cincinnati and a Master's degree from the University of Southern California.
Although most visitors come to LA for Hollywood and Disneyland, I hope to introduce you to so much more, while showing you how to make the most of your time in La La Land. Whether you're looking for fast-paced glitz, or a laid-back beach vacation, I can point you in the right direction.
Like all the experts at About.com, I'm a real person. I do my best to read all my email and I enjoy hearing from visitors to my site, especially hearing what a great time you had in LA based on info you found on my site! I try to answer them all, but some slip by due to the sheer volume. If you're asking a time-sensitive question, be sure to say so in the subject line. You can email me here.
