I grew up in western Kansas among the wheat fields and baseball fields. My parents instilled a love a travel at a young age. So far I have visited 35 states and have gone overseas. My personal belief is that Kansas is the prettiest of all 50 states, many will disagree. I have a B.F.A. in photography and an emphasis in psychology and painting. I love art and quirky neighborhoods, Austin TX has both in abundance. These days I would consider myself a Texan as I use y'all rather frequently and have even slipped a fixin' in a time or two.
