Hometown: Detroit, MI
October 25, 2008
I found Meetup when I first moved to DC - best decision ever. Back then, 20s&30s had 2000 people. Now it's the second largest meetup group in the world! It's safe to say that I've met more people in DC through Meetup than any other avenue. All types - close friends, best friends, future co-workers, networking contacts, roommates, ex-girlfriends (yep!). You'll never know who you'll meet until you walk up and say hello...
Born and raised in Detroit, MI. Undergrad at Michigan State University and grad school at Wayne State University. Lived in Japan for a few months and then I ended up in Washington D.C.
I'm pretty much a regular of the charity happy hours and NYE parties. But I also go to the occasional theater show and some of the other great events J.T. and his crew put on.
Been in DC since 2007 and loved every minute of it.
20s & 30s is the gold-standard of meetup groups, not just in D.C., but anywhere. You'll meet friendly, smart people at every event. Some of my closest friends today started out as strangers I met at one of the 20s & 30s events.
