I live in a house in East Austin. I have a wonderful organic garden in my backyard which I invest a lot of time in. I also own a few delightful pet chickens (with names!). They just started laying and have completely overwhelmed me with eggs. I always get excited when it is time to go buy chicken feed at Callahan's, and I spend way too much time and money at The Natural Gardener.
Being active is very important to me. I play tennis at least 5 times a week. I run in the mornings when it isn't 1000F outside. Sailing is also a sport I'm deeply involved in. I crew on a racing sailboat at Lake Travis and we compete around the state throughout the year.
I travel as much as I can. I just went on an amazing trip to India for a friend's wedding. I'm headed to Greece/Turkey this summer. Domestically, I like to go visit my friends on the east/west coast or go skiing in Colorado.
There is so much that is interesting about our world. I'm a huge devourer of any reading on: science, history, economics, finance, technology, geopolitics, etc. Though my favorite book of the year was on gardening.
I love to learn and I'm never afraid to try something new.
