My friends like to describe me as being full of life – I am
spontaneous, curious and passionate. I love meeting new people,
making new friends and spending time with my family. And I promised
my friend Sabrina that I would include this next part, since it’s
something I normally wouldn’t say. “Cassie has a huge heart, and is
perhaps the most sincere person you’ll ever meet. She’s a loyal
friend, and is a girl that I call when I want a laugh, or when I
need to talk. She is so fun and easy going. I think the world of
her, and think you will too if you’re lucky enough to meet
I grew up a military brat, moving all over the place. I think
that's made me very adaptable and outgoing. I moved back to Austin
in November 2012 after 2 years in New York City and then 4 years in
Chicago. My family is in San Antonio, and I'm so happy to be living
closer to them again. I'm smart, friendly and pretty easy going
most of the time. At this point in my life, I'm striving for a
better work life balance. Family and quality of life are more
important to me than climbing the corporate ladder. I like to be
social with friends, but can be just as happy staying in and
watching a movie.
I'd like to meet someone who is kind, funny, family oriented and
also somewhat adventurous, meaning they like to go out and try new
things, travel and have fun!
What I’m doing with my life
I have been in the marketing and advertising world for the past 10
years. Currently I work at Superior HealthPlan as a Senior
I’m really good at
Writing and photography. They are both just hobbies, but I love to
tap into my creative side. I've also been told I'm a really good
friend and listener.
The first things people usually notice about me
My smile or my laugh! I tend to find humor in the small things, so
find myself laughing often. I'm also usually smiling. :)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I moved back to Austin because I missed the live music scene, good
Tex-Mex and margaritas! I am also a huge movie buff and somewhat of

The six things I could never do without
Family, friends, music, travel, movies and laughter
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I try to live in the present as often as I can, but I do spend a
good amount of time thinking about the future. I think about
wanting to meet the right person to spend my life with and to raise
a family with. Since moving back to Austin, I also think about all
the cool places I need to check out!
On a typical Friday night I am
Depends on the Friday night! This Friday night my girlfriends and I
are going to a painting class (one of the bring your own wine
classes). Other Friday nights I’ll get together with friends for
dinner, movie, drinks, etc. At this time of year if you ask me
about a Saturday, it’s likely going to involve a football game at
Texas State (my alma mater).
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Once at Baby Acapulco's in Austin many years ago, an over abundance
of liquid courage led to an embarrassing conversation with Matthew
McConaughey. You’ll have to have gone on a couple dates with me AND
meet my friend Sabrina before you hear that story (because she
loves to tell it)!
You should message me if
You are a fun spirit, a loyal friend, an honest man and a kind
person overall. Oh – and please make me laugh!
