I enjoy music, photography, travel, cactus/succulents, fishing/boating, the Oaxacan Pacific coast and meeting interesting people. I have followed Austin's music scene since the 70's Armadillo World Headquarters days. I especially enjoy all the Texas singer/songwriters who put Austin on the musical map. Also, I love New Orleans music which has a deep, rich history and a sound that transcends me in time. My interests cover from Buddy Holly to Buddy Bolden, from Townes to Dr John, and Shinyribs to Trombone Shorty. My musical tastes cover rock, country, R & B, reggae, blues, jazz, conjunto/Tex Mex, Mexican, African, Cuban, Latin, Big Band, and classical. I own and operate the South First Food Court which is in a unique area peppered with many mostly local Austin independent businesses, coffee shops,restaurants,and music stories. Torchy's Tacos, Summermoon coffee shop, are just a short walk down the hill to S. 1st from my home. I am very close to SoCo, S. Lamar, Zilker Park, and Downtown.
I have had very satisfied airbnb guests from all over the world, all ages, different backgrounds and cultures who enjoy a clean, moderately priced, private stay in a very beautiful and peaceful backyard in a quiet neighborhood which is close to many of Austin's choice spots.
I enjoy working with plants......cactus, succulents,bromeliads especially. I have been creating cactus bowls that pass on a humorous, satirical, political, poke in the eye. I use found objects, kid's unwanted, broken, exhausted or abandoned toys, Mexican chotzkies, etc. My backyard reflects many of my passions about plants .
