I'm a "native Texan" that spent about 5 years in the San Francisco Bay Area, and in 2012 returned home to Austin, Texas. I work in education technology and am married to Ross, who is a fill time PhD student.
We enjoy going to the movies and playing board games on the weekends. We have a small dog, but she rarely travels with us (I'll contact you directly if she would be joining us).
As for interests, I typically keep up with the current events via The New York Times. I enjoy reading Harry Potter (twice!), books and essays by Malcom Gladwell, current social and economic issue books, and historical fiction. In the car, I listen to NPR podcasts such as Planet Money and This American Life.
