I was born and raised in a semi-rural town in Texas, that is famous for cotton farming and the hometown of the famous musician Buddy Holly. Picture the Texas from the movies and you would be exactly spot-on: rodeos, cowboy hats and tumbleweed rolling over a flat desert landscape, that looks a lot like the desolate roadrunner/coyote landscape from the cartoons.
As a traveller, I've been all over Europe, South East Asia, Japan and Egypt and I hope to see more of the world. I've lived in Australia for the past 5 years. Spent the first four in Adelaide attending medical school and this past year in Fremantle working as a first year doctor. In my past life, prior to setting out on this medicine career, I worked as a computer programmer at a few internet startup companies in the wonderfully quirky and culturally rich city of Austin, Texas. A place near and dear to my heart, my true home.
I'd like to think that I'm a conscientious and neat houseguest who will treat your house with respect. Though I like meeting new people and hearing about their life/stories, I am also fine keeping to myself and making my own way.
