I moved from Indiana to Austin 6 years ago and feel I've found my home. I'm a professor of English as a Second Language at a local university and very active in the local urban agriculture movement-- I helped start up and we're now maintaining a big new community garden in downtown/east Austin.
I love urban life and enjoy walking or riding bikes along the city's hike-and-bike trail which is a few blocks from our house. I also value knowing my neighbors and meeting travelers from around the country and the world. I lived in Holland for five years and have traveled extensively throughout Europe, the Middle East, Mexico, and Argentina. I speak a little Spanish and I'm still proficient in Dutch.
