long bio

Naja Hall was born and raised in Memphis, TN and has called Harlem, New York City home since 2007. She is the founder of the largest blended family community for millennials, Blended and Black. She also runs, a community for stepmothers. As a means to stay close to her comedy writing-roots, Naja produces her passion project Dating Debacles.

She earned an undergraduate degree from The University of Tennessee in Family and Consumer Sciences and went on to attend The University of North Texas where she worked on an MBA in International Business. While in Dallas, TX she began her career as a corporate Buyer. One day while gazing out of her cushy office window, she noticed her colleagues, seemingly in a single filed lined, in the same dark suit, walking into a workday of monotony. It was then that she hopped on her glittery broomstick, flew away, and never looked back!

If Naja could have one super-power, she would love to be able to teleport. That way, she could have cheese eggs, bacon, and grits with her Grandma in Memphis every morning, go for a mid-day swim in Antigua, have lunch in Rome with perfect strangers and be home in time for dinner with her Husband in Manhattan.
