New York City is a pretty big place. But if you run around in certain circles, you’re very likely to come across the same people. That was how I came to know Avery Liburd, formerly known as Avery Li or DarkShonobi on YouTube where we first met. I’m not sure if he remembers or not but when we ran into each other randomly in Midtown Manhattan, where we exchanged pleasantries and introduced ourselves.

“We build together”

When I reached out, here is what he had to say.
