I encourage guests that have an itinerary in mind for their visit such as SXSW, and the majority of the requests that I receive are in March for the music festival. A Texas resident since 2000, I attended Texas A&M University - Corpus Christi where I completed graduate studies in English in 2002. Most recently I attended 4 semesters at The University of Texas - Austin as a non-degree-seeking graduate student in kinesiology. I like to be outside and enjoy bicycling, swimming and running the trails. Since moving to Texas I've earned a master scuba license and visited The Texas Flower Gardens in the Gulf of Mexico. At night I usually play at Austin area open mic's. I'm working toward a CD collection of piano hits from the 70's for audiences and also play electric and acoustic guitar. I prefer Mexican, Asian and American restaurants. I have a collection of reading material including fiction, American writers, sports, comedy and historical documentaries. I don't go to the movies as much as watch Netflix or wait for the DVD. I visited Toronto, Canada in 2014.
