About

Thrive In .LA is a wild look at Los Angeles through the eyes’ of four, best friends. Skai, Henry, J, and Raphe have all grown up on the harsh, streets of Los Angeles. The twist and turns of these young men make for an epic journey for the reader.

Scott Beaver was born and raised in Louisville, Ky. After his 3rd year of college, he dropped out, packed up his car, and moved to Los Angeles, CA. His creative passion, inspired him to write some of Looking out the Window, now Thrive In .LA in 1999. A wonderful friend, Meredith Harper now Meredith Harper Pickens, an Entertainment Lawyer had majored in English and edited the book in 1999.

However, Scott’s unique, creativity following a severe closed head injury took him in other directions. What followed, were multiple screenplays, Screens Actors Guild membership, selling in several online businesses, djembe drumming and volunteering to share the expression of art with under privileged children through the 501(c)3 nonprofit, SDB1 for the Arts (thank you Arlene Dayoan for your help founding this organization) better known as OneLov and Art Plays A Part.

The following episodes of Thrive In .LA will be released every 4th month in 2020.
