I grew up in the Montclair District of Oakland, CA. I attended Thornhill Elementary School, Montera Junior High, Skyline High School and spent some time at Merritt College. I lived in Montclair until I was a young adult and since then I have lived by Lake Merritt, the Fruitvale District, Piedmont Ave, the King Estates Area and now the Laurel District.

I hope you will enjoy the history as much as I do.
