I was born and reared in Austin, Texas, where I attended three elementary schools, three middle schools, one high school, and one university. I've backpacked through Europe, gone on an archeological dig in the Belizean rainforest, scuba dived through the Atlantic reefs, and skydived over San Marcos. And, while hang-gliding turned out not to be for me, I did give it a shot.

Now, in my spare time, I enjoy spending time with friends and family, reading, watching movies, and kayaking at Zilker Park Boats. And, of course, I write… a lot.
