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 think I covered most of the highlights in the intro, so I'll use this space to talk about my experiences with YBB. I joined YBB a long time ago, but for a variety of reasons chose only to be a fringe member coming only to a handful of events for years. Eventually, I got the itch to connect with new people and share some of the awesome places and things that I've found around the Bay Area with others, so I started going to more and more YBB events. I really dug the folks that I was meeting and wanted to hang out more, so I started suggesting events. The next thing I know, I'm an organizer. Wait, what?

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

Solo activities that I enjoy include taking long drives up and down the coast, looking for remote and picturesque spots to stop and read a book. But you're probably more interested in group activities. Most of my interests here revolve around food and music. Concerts, karaoke, ballroom dancing, and the occasional fit of club dancing fill the music requirements. Bar-hopping and bourbon tasting fill my need for brown liquor.

Why did you join YBB?

Is "YOLO" an acceptable answer? No? Well, that's the story that I'm sticking with.

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

Zombies... no, robots... no, definitely zombies.
