I grew up in Montclair a district or neighborhood of Oakland, CA.  I attended Thornhill Elementary School, Montera Junior High, Skyline High School and spent sometime 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 I share as much as I do.
