I'm a lifelong writer who's lived in Austin since 1978. I was a freelance business and marketing writer for more than a decade prior to the high-tech bust of the early 2000s and have written for various local publications. Currently I'm employed as a technical editor and writer at IBM. I like to think I know Austin and its quirks, and am fairly up to date on late-breaking developments. My neighborhood is one of the most sought-after close-in 'hoods in the city. I belong to an accomplished writing group (working on an novel) and enjoy going to galleries & museums. I am a movie afficianado from way back. Will enjoy helping my guests determine how best to explore this great city.
