Tell us a little about yourself
I am the DC Community Manager for Yelp.com. In my spare time...wait a minute, I have no spare time! If I had spare time, I would spend it blowing bubbles, hula hooping, thumbing through pop up books, sucking the icing out of Twinkies and having West Side Story inspired dance offs in the streets of DC.
