I live in a beautiful town outside of Austin, the so called gateway to the Texas hill country. I grew up in Texas and I love it here, I study the local flora and fauna to be more in touch with my home and it's history. I am into reading about local folklore, local herbal folk remedies and the like. I throw hatchets and knives, build huge bonfires, and love riding my bicycle around to go for a cruise or to camp. I value health and living an active lifestyle. I grow food, herbs, flowers and am always learning with that. I am a laid back dude, I like to brew beer and enjoy good food and company.
I started studying German in high school and have tried to stay in touch with it. Since graduating college it's become increasingly more difficult to maintain any level of German language skills. I am hoping to become a teacher (not particularly German) this upcoming year and would love to use this program as some kind of practice for holding education based dialogue.
