Other stuff.

In addition to development, you can often find me in my kitchen in Austin, baking bread using my very own sourdough starter or fresh croissants using one of Tartine's recipes. I also enjoy hanging out with my friends drinking, some spectacular craft beers , or collecting hard to find bourbons.
