Alright, so I've been in Austin a little over 2.5 years. I'm originally from the PNW and I'm one of those weird people who likes the rain. But I have also grown to love the fact that it's 80 degrees in January. The 100 summers I'm still getting use to.
For the "9-5" I'm a product designer at USAA. And thus far I really like it (new job as of 2017). But being a designer, when I'm not at the office I'm working on some side project, something for a client or scheming about some crazy idea.
But in the few hours I'm not in front of a computer, I'm out and about. Trying to navigate the downtown area for good places for a beer and food. Seeing what Austin has to offer and getting immersed in the community as best I can. But there's still a lot to explore, and I'm always up for a buddy!
I'm a fairly open book, and consider myself fairly easy to talk to. So let's start a discussion and see where things go!
Movies: Waterboy, Happy Gilmore, Billy Madison, 50 First Dates, Gone in 60 Seconds, Lost in Translation, National Treasure are a few movies I enjoy.
TV: Dexter, Big Bang Theory, Bones, Rookie Blue, Leverage, White Collar, Burn Notice to name a few.
Music: I listen mostly to Pandora, and open to anything from cello music to heavy metal. Recently I have been listening to Blackmill, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis and Christian hip-hop.
Food: Mexican / Italian / Middle Eastern are favorites. However I am not a fish person.
Complex answer, life in general.
