My Hometown

I currently live in a small suburb of Austin, TX. This has been my single longest place of residence since becoming an adult. I have lived in the Austin area since college graduation, and I will do my best to make this my "home base" even though I plan to do alot of travelling.

Live Music Capital of the World

When you land at the airport, you will immediately understand why we claim to be the live music capital of the World, as the sounds of Austin ring true immediately. From Texas Country, to blues and jazz, to SXSW, you will have more than enough options!

Pick up an Austin Chronicle, and find a band that you want to hear and go!
