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 heard about YBB on FaceBook many moons ago. I'm off Facebook on a detox that may become permanent. So I thought it would be a good idea to re-link up via Meetup.

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

I prefer activities where I can actually talk to people and get to know them while sharing an interesting experience. It could be chilling at a coffee shop, art gallery, art party, volunteer service, board games or doing the food trucks at Off the Grid. I am not a big fan of clubs, bars or disco-type scenes. There's no judgement intended for those that do enjoy these activities... just saying my piece.

Why did you join YBB?

See my introduction.

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

It would be a collection of short speculative fiction stories.


I'm a Berkeley grad student and professional nerd who wants my social media to be more social. So here I am! My hope is to meet like-minded conscious, active, black folks who love our community and living lives of adventure at the same time.
