Where are you from?

Ocala, FL

Why did you move to Austin?

Why not?! My best friend and I had recently graduated from undergrad and we didn’t really have anything going on in our lives at the time so we figured why not move somewhere different…have an adventure. I had heard great things about Austin but had never been. And I have never pictured myself living in Texas, of all places.

What is the best part about living in Austin?

I love that it is both the capital city and a college town. I’m still young and I love to go out on the weekends and I think that Austin has the perfect balance of being a young, hip, party city and a professional city. It’s also such a beautiful city! Who would’ve thought Texas was so green…right?

Where do you work?

I work at a local children’s museum where I manage the museum admissions and visitor services. I love it!

What is your favorite restaurant (or food truck) in Austin?

TORCHY’S! Best tacos ever. Or should I say “Damn good tacos.”

What is one thing you would suggest to someone visiting the city?

Come hungry. This city is known to have great food and you don’t want to miss out. If you leave Austin without gaining a few pounds then you have not done yourself justice. So then you’ll have to come back for round two.
