I was born in San Antonio, and, after 17 years, I started my way up I-35 - San Marcos, by way of Texas State University [B.A., Mass Communication - emphasis: Electronic Media | minor in Business Administration]. Whilest in college, I stumbled my way into the radio industry, and made my move to the "Live Music Capitol of the World," Austin.

I spent the next 14 years of my life in Austin, and enjoyed watching that fair city grow - while playing a minor part in some of it. Let's get a little business-y, shall we...

I'm a creative marketing professional, with leadership and brand marketing experience, a decade-plus experience in the radio industry as Marketing Associate & Sr. Promotions Director for a suite of stations under the Emmis Austin Radio brand. I played in the startup sector for a little bit, Jellifi.com, an online event marketplace, then with ID.CREATIVE, a Digital Marketing & PR agency. Though not as successful as I would've liked, every path is a part of the plan, right? I moved on to multi-use venue management, sports marketing and event sales experience at the Frank Erwin Center.

Then I started reading...well, I was always a reader - I just stopped for a while in my attempts to run the world. I started to explore internally, to silence some of the noise. Yoga for back pain became yoga for clarity and balance. Blogging more via http://thisisusnotme.com to get thoughts expressed. Reading for the chance to understand that we all share the same experiences. Trying to live while I still have life to do so.
