About me

Location Austin, TX
Introduction I have a BA in History with a Minor in Anthropology - both of which are thoroughly useless except for kicking ass in Trivial Pursuit. . .;) In spite of that, I still earn a great living as a systems analyst/technical writer. I’m a Christian and a liberal, intelligent, generous, infinitely curious, & passionate. But, I’m also impatient, stubborn, opinionated, spoiled, & more than a little OCD. I’m addicted to Starbuck’s chai lattes, pedicures, & my Kindle. If I didn't have to work, I'd sit on a Caribbean beach and have all three every day for the rest of my life. . .;)
Interests I love shopping, socializing, yoga, traveling, learning, experience, reading, stamping, and time with my family. I hate bigotry, religion in politics, selfishness, TV, and slow drivers.
Favorite Movies I'd rather watch a documentary.
Favorite Music My favorite music is by U2, Frank Sinatra, Lyle Lovett, David Bowie, Dramarama, and the Gipsy Kings. Right now I’m listening to a lot of Chingon, H.I.M, Shakira, Bob Schneider, and Lady Gaga.
Favorite Books My favorite fiction novel is To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee. My favorite non-fiction books are Mediterranean Winter by Robert Kaplan, Bayou Farewell by Mike Tidwell, & Among the Russians by Colin Thubron. Right now I’m reading Rat Scabies & the Holy Grail by Christopher Dawes.
