About Me

I'm a Michigan native who moved to Texas 4 years ago mainly for the warm and sunny clime. I'm a musician, teacher, and outdoor enthusiast. As a student I mainly studied classical violin, but since moving to Austin, the city that touts itself as the "Live Music Capital" I've been branching out and playing with a couple local bands. I like taking meandering walks in natural areas, with my camera in hand, attempting to discover what's growing and living in the area. I'm an adventurous eater and enjoy trying new cuisines, another benefit of living in my current "foodie" city.
