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!

I was born and raised in Queens, NY, I've been out here for a little over a year now for work. I found out about YBB through a friend, I'm just trying to take full advantage of what it means to be a black professional in the Bay Area.

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

Anything to stay active more or less. Hanging out with friends, playing basketball, etc. etc., the general stuff. I've caught a bit of a charity bug since I moved out here though, I'm finding myself using my well earned opportunity in life to help others.

Why did you join YBB?

I joined to meet people, network within a niche community that is as rare as it is intriguing. There are many a black professional that feel like they're the only one that's making it in a city like this, and its good to know that groups like YBB allow all of us to meet up for a change.

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

Not sure yet... I gotta make sure its something that somebody else actually wants to read lol
