Hi! I'm Gabby. I live in West Hollywood, CA. I am passionate about community, education, civil rights, art, writing, crafting, and yoga. I am the Director of Partnerships for a community connections/ neighborhood networking app called Bailiwik. Bailiwik helps people turn places into communities. We believe that unconditonal membership in the human community is a basic requirement of life, and that the people around us are a key part of that community. Our app enables local connectors to create a warm, welcoming real-world community by putting them into a central role as creator and host. They define their community on the map, they name it, they design its color scheme, and they play a leading host role in the shared community chat room. Community members chat with each other, share events, enjoy deals from local merchants -- and live richer and more fun lives as a result, connecting online -- and off. See Less
