Have you always lived in Austin?
No, I am originally from Boerne, a really small town in the hills outside of San Antonio and Austin. I spent most of my time in Austin growing up; however, I have been living in El Paso for the past three years before moving back out here a couple of months ago.
How would you describe Austin to someone who has never been to Texas?
Austin is a rather liberal, young, hip town where it seems everyone wants to be these days. The city is quite beautiful as are the people. It is known as the live music capital of the world due to the overwhelming amount of live music venues per capita (more than New York or Los Angeles) and our 'Austin City Limits' and 'South By Southwest' music festivals. Many people come to town for the nightlife on 6th street. I try to avoid that mess and tend to stick to 4th and 5th. If you enjoy the outdoors you'll love it here. I have yet to find someone that doesn't.
What do you think is the best part of Austin?
Hard to say what the best part of Austin is with more than three hundred days of sunshine, beautiful hills, lakes, creeks, parks, hiking and biking trails. I would have to say the outdoors. I am always outside and so is everyone else. We are all pretty active from running the trails around Lady Bird Lake (formerly Town Lake), to kayaking, to biking the hills on 360 or taking a dip in Barton Creek in the greenbelt it is hard not to want to be outdoors.
You study Geography has that always been an interest?
I have always been interested in geography, I just didn't consider studying it until recently. For the past four years or so I have been a studio art major in ceramics. I came to realize that, although I love creating beautiful artwork, I am more interested in focusing my life's work on helping to make an impact on a larger part of society. Right now I am involved in resource and environmental studies as part of urban and regional planning.
You can only watch one of these shows this season. Which show has your loyalty Ugly Betty or Lost?
Ha...well that's a tough one...both great shows and so different. I'm going to have to go with lost though. I have been watching the show since the beginning and I just can't get enough.
What do you think is your best feature? Your worst?
I am often told my eyes are my best feature. I don't really pay much attention to any of that though. I would have to say my best attribute would be my heart and my worst quality...I am overly cautious.
Lily Allen or Kate Nash? Or do they share a voice?
Ha-Ha. I Love Lily, but Kate does have that remarkable ditty 'Dickhead'.
What do you look for in a guy?
Heart, intelligence, humor...I'm not interested in anything real specific. It is the connection between us that really gets me. Sometimes they have it...other times they don't...really sucks when they're cute as Hell.
Tell us about the last date you went on?
Interesting...a guy I had met the day before called me up and said 'hey I've got these tickets to the flaming lips'...we went and waited forever in a line wrapped twice around the block...only to have them turn us away in the end as the venue was filled to capacity. Fun way to get to know somebody though. We went to have some drinks and then dinner. It turned out nice.
Just for kicks what were you wearing when you answered these questions?
I never wear anything when I'm at home.
