About Me



to connect


i like the outdoors, travelling, relaxing, music, art, and food! :-) i love bringing people together.

"I am one of the searchers. There are, I believe, millions of us. We are not unhappy, but neither are we really content. We continue to explore life, hoping to uncover its ultimate secret. We continue to explore ourselves, hoping to understand. We like to walk along the beach, we are drawn by the ocean, taken by its power, its unceasing motion, its mystery and unspeakable beauty. We like forests and mountains, deserts and hidden rivers, and the lonely cities as well. Our sadness is as much a part of our lives as is our laughter. To share our sadness with one we love is perhaps as great a joy as we can know -unless it be to share our laughter. We searchers are ambitious only for life itself, for everything beautiful it can provide."

--There Are Men Too Gentle To Live Among Wolves" by James Kavanough


do what makes you happy. live the life you love.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I quit my job, sold my house, moved across the country, and started over. It remains one of the best decisions I have ever made.

Also, super proud of my Austin local CS community!
