Outside hobbies & interests: I enjoy Science Fiction and Fantasy books, TV shows, and movies. Yes, I like Star Trek, Dr. Who, and Game of Thrones. I also enjoy reading comic books and playing games; in fact, we own Tribe Comics and Games in South Austin.
What you think makes UT or Austin unique, cool, or "weird": The people! I love the fact that strangers will strike up a conversation with me while I'm getting my caffeine fix at Epoch. I totally dig all the small, locally owned businesses and all the delicious trailers hidden throughout the city.
