Constantly reinventing and trying to make the most of our human experience.
ABOUT ME/ PHILOSOPHY
I believe that everyone is smart in their own way and there is a lot to learn by listening to each other. Aside from words, we can learn from other's energy, attitude, and actions if we take the time. I enjoy spending time with great people and being a part of all the great things going on.

Live Music Capitol:
Austin is full of live music in almost every genre, but it is really well known for blues, acoustic singer song-writers, rockabilly, rock/jam bands, and jazz. I like going to live events and can show guests lots of great shows in town.
Non-fiction and sci-fi.
Algo increíble que he hecho
I went from Miami to Tampa for a weekend to go to a concert. Instead of going back home I decided to drive north and go for a road trip across the U.S. with the few things I had. During that trip I found my new home in Austin and it has been a great change. I guess I'm technically still on that trip :)
