Austin, TX

Member since:

November 7, 2013

Please tell us a little about yourself.

I was born and grew up in South and Central Texas. I have lived in Austin since 1992, when I started attending UT. I have degrees in architecture and English, love traveling around looking at buildings, and have worked at the Texas Historical Commission since 1997. I have two kids, my husband works at UT, and I currently hold a very bureaucratic job but love it because I get to know about resources all around the state (and try to protect the most important ones). There's a constant undercurrent in my psyche searching for a creative, expressive outlet, though, and I would love to explore a full-time life of writing books and music and performing. My tastes are broad but I most enjoy writing folk music...and silly musicals.

What attracted you to this group?

I am interested in opportunities to connect with others who are enthusiastic, supportive, and more experienced with casual performance.

What is your musical background?

From an early age, I was interested in a variety of instruments. I started with piano in grade school, added French Horn in middle school, dabbled in cello and guitar, but mostly consider myself a singer and have been involved in choirs off and on my whole life. I am also a prolific writer of fiction, poetry, and song lyrics and melodies. I currently take classical guitar with my kids through UT String Project and am in a parent guitar ensemble there.


I am an architectural historian, but I've always been drawn to writing, singing, and performing. Parenthood and life in general have kept me from pursuing much musically, but I am trying to amend that!
