No smoking in the studio.
Born in the U.K., I moved to Italy when I was in my teens and spent a lot of my adult life there. As many, I moved to Austin for a spell and ended up staying. Difficult to move away from that southern warmth...and now that I am married to a girl from New Orleans, I am here for good..
Photographer, sailor, rower and sometime runner, I love the Austin outdoors and life in the hill country. I am a passionate cook, and a South Austin type of guy when it comes to eating out. The choice and creativity in food, south of the river, is really a match for any town and one of the reasons I bought my house in the Bouldin Creek neighborhood. I have just started listing both Studio and Guest House on AirBnB so come check them out!
