A DC Native, people say I'm rude and abrasive; I say I'm passionate. I've been working in marketing since 2005. My brothers and I paid Geppi's rent through the 80s and 90s. My relief at an indoor wavepool never materializing in Silver Spring is balanced by my disappointment that City Place has dozens of shuttered storefronts. I love what you've done with your hair.

    Thank you Silver Spring I;m looking forward to the New Library Opening…I”m hope it will be a great event for our community. This community has very little place to go and read and just do learning things…Border Book Store was some of our only outlet for reading enjoyment….Well see you at the opening.

    Thank you
