What do you hope to get out of this group?

I think my profile says it all...:) I don't have that much time in my schedule for Meetups these days, but would love to meet new people and explore new places.

How long have you been in the North Atlanta area?

I've lived in the area for two years. Prior to that, I lived in Midtown Atlanta, and also in Vinings.

What do you do for a living?

I'm a freelance writer and artist, trying to turn creativity into a paycheck. My degree is in opera and musical theatre, and I've also been singing and acting professionally since the age of 6. Since coming to ATL, I've given that up, sadly. :(

What do you like to do for fun?

In addition to organizing a Meetup and helping out with two others, I love meeting new people, restaurants, theatre, concerts, movies, and anything artistic. I also play on a trivia league once or twice every week, love poker, reality TV, and books.

What other placesW have you lived other than North Atlanta?

I grew up in Philadelphia, and attended university in NYC. I've also lived in London, Los Angeles, Miami, and aboard a cruise ship. Atlanta is quite literally the smallest place I've ever lived. :)


Hey everyone! I'm Alayna, the organizer of the Atlanta New In Town Meetup. I live in Sandy Springs, and being a non-driver from the Northeast, suburban life is a challenge! Would love to make new friends in my age group who also live in the area.

What Alayna-Renee is saying about this Meetup Group

Ashley and her crew run a great, laid-back group with a variety of events and interesting people. I'd definitely recommend!
