I am work in the Texas Capitol and like to read, run, and cook in my spare time. I've lived in Austin for five years, but grew up in Upstate New York and went to college in Louisiana.
Whether it be a weekend trip to a nearby rural town or a two week trip to Europe I love to spend any extra money and time that I have on exploring a new place. I am also a commuter cyclist and HATE to drive, unless its on a road trip.
I am a pretty low maintenance house guest and I typically use my hotel or accommodations as merely a place to sleep. I like to enjoy a fancy dinner and a glass of wine or two.
My travel companion is my boyfriend of eight years. He currently teaches high school in Austin and is avid basketball player.
