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'm originally from VA, and I recently relocated to the Bay Area. A few people I've met told me to check out Meet Up, so I'm doing just that.

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

I enjoy spoken word and poetry slams. I also appreciate a good happy hour. No favorite places yet.

Why did you join YBB?

YBB seems like a good starting point for me to branch out and get to know more people and the area a bit better.

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

A book of leisure would probably be centered on poetry. An academic book would be focused on some aspect of the representations of African American identity.


I'm new to the area and would love to meet some new people
