I'm from the Dallas/Ft. Worth area in North Texas, but have lived in Austin for 4 years now. I am a recent graduate of St. Edward's University -- a small public University in south Austin -- and have a degree in Graphic Design. I currently work at a Steakhouse and at Anthropologie, both jobs of which I love because they involve 2 of my favorite things -- food and shopping :) I enjoy being outdoors, taking my pup, basil, on hikes to the greenbelt and traveling in the US and Europe! I studied abroad in Florence, Italy 2 years ago and caught the travel bug :) So any chance I get, I explore a new place. Here in Austin, I love trying new restaurants and going out with friends in our beautiful downtown area!
