I’m a 21 year old college student living in Norman, OK. Upon graduation, I plan on going to graduate school at UT in Austin.
I’m an English major (with a focus on writing) and a French minor.
I’m a laid back guy, kind of reserved in my own little circle of like-minded people. I don’t like messes. If you’re a messy person, I won’t have much to do with you if anything at all. The next few years of my life will be heavily education oriented, tiring, but it’s all good. I graduated from high school in 2005, the school no longer exists, sad, lol. I graduated from UHD, majoring in English in May 2009. I plan to attend Theological Seminary, hopefully in Atlanta at the Candler School of Theology at Emory, but it’s starting to look more like Houston Baptist University will be my choice.

I am a new recruit to New York City from the great state of Texas who fancies herself a writer and a reader. My cat and I sit in our Brooklyn desk chair and drink iced coffee. I am also a fan of nationalized healthcare, queer politics, gender deviance, whiskey, and cheap beer.
I’m a NYC native living in Houston as a creative marketing writer. Houston is my last stop in a series of relocations over the past 7 years. I’ve lived in Berkeley, CA and Chicago, IL before settling down and starting a family here in H-town. I love the people in this town–the diversity, the southern charm. I thrive on this stuff! Houston has provided an awesome opportunity for me to write, interact, eat, work and experience something new. Although I’m fully sold on the Rodeo thing (Gimme a break here. I’m a New York-a!), Houston has been wonderful. Who knows. I might let my daughter try mutton busting one day…maybe.
