It boggles the mind when you realize how similar and how different people are. Similar in that we all want the same thing, but we go about it in infinitely different ways. One example is that we all want cars to get around in — most of us — but our tastes are as diverse as you can imagine. 

The other week, I was attending the Malibu Cars & Coffee at Bluffs Park, admiring the cool rides like the muscle cars, exotics and customs. And as much as I appreciate them, it’s always nice to see something unique. And what was it that caught my wandering eyes?

As Malibu High School boys swimming head coach Mike Mulligan announced the results of the Frontier League Championships on Thursday, May 8, his swimmers waited.

Third place went to Grace Brethren and second to Nordhoff.

“First place, Malibu,” he said.

Hollis Cadenhead sees interior design from an exterior perspective.

“I approach interior design from an architectural level,” Cadenhead said. “I see the details through the spaces and materials.”

In fact, Cadenhead was gearing up to begin architecture school in 2008 when she landed her first design gig with the Malibu Tennis Club. It was then that she discovered the new path that her passions would take — not in designing the buildings themselves, but in creating their character.

After sending out close to 100 letters and dialing the telephone numbers of dozens of collegiate basketball coaches across the nation, Malibu High School senior and basketball star Justin Holmes picked up the phone one more time to call the head coach at the University of Oregon.

“I started talking to the coach and I accidentally said, ‘so how is San Diego?’” Holmes laughed. “I’d called so many coaches, I forgot who I was talking to. It was pretty embarrassing.”

Lisa Stalvey’s career as a world-renowned chef and creator of Malibu Catering was set in motion with an order of two eggs over-easy.

“When I was 18 I got a waitressing gig at the Good Earth in Westwood — I fell in love with the chef,” Stalvey said. “One slow morning ... I got behind the counter and he said to me, jokingly, ‘Lisa there’s two orders of two eggs over-easy. Fire it.’”

After a Thanksgiving meal six or seven years ago, by Matteo Indelicato’s recollection, his brother was saying his goodbyes and getting ready to depart back to Hawaii, where he lived. 

“No bro, we gotta hit up some more waves before you go,” Indelicato implored to his brother.

The appeal was considered, but ultimately declined as Indelicato’s brother packed up his car and slid a ukulele case into the back seat.
