Tell us about yourself. Where are you from? How did you hear about YBB? Feel free to include links to your Twitter, Facebook, blog, etc. to help us learn about you!

Originally from Inglewood, CA. I am looking for some Young Black professionals to hang out with and voila there was YBB Twitter: Facebook-!/shelbyr.austin

In general, what kinds of activities do you like? What, if any, are your favorite local venues?

I love to dance ( chicago stepping) I also like history and art events. I recently enjoyed an Oakland history walk and an Oakland Art Murmur open studio event. Favorite venues are Cotton Mill Lofts, Linen Life Gallery, Ozumo's, Kincaid's and Yoshi's

Why did you join YBB?

finding a consistent group of young black professionals is challenging. Im looking for a little help expanding my circle

For fun: If you were to write a book what would it be about?

The funny thoughts that no one shares... or some sci-fi detective mystery whose lead character has a soft spot for exposed clothing tags and a shoe problem =)


Hey YBB, I'm a So cal native, but after I moved to the bay for school, I was hooked. The bay is home now, dunno if I'll ever make it back down south =) Looking for some like minded fun individuals with whom to explore more of my home away from home
