What kind of hobbies and interests do you have? Why do you want to attend this event? What are you looking for in attending?

Political humor - conflict resolution (volunteer as a mediator for the Dispute Resolution Center) - playing in the kitchen and garden - foreign languages/travel (used to be a linguist) - singing (used to be in a drinking group with a singing problem)

If you were were an animal, what kind of animal would you be? AND WHY??!!

I'd be a cat - friendly but independent, and unapologetic about it!

Describe what you do for a living or describe your occupation.

I own Detour Travel,, where I design and lead "small group tours with a twist." If the motto weren't "small group tours with a twist," it would probably be: --Adventures in Latin America for tourists who hate tourists --Queer eye for the str8 or LGBT traveler --Eating there is half the fun What makes my tours distinctive is, I make them personal. I only go places I know well, where I can give people an unconventional experience they wouldn't get on their own, or with a generic tour. For example, in Tequila, the standard touristy thing to do is take Jose Cuervo's hourly factory tour. Instead, my group does a private session at a little distillery owned by the boyfriend of a friend of a friend. It's in the same spirit as Keep Austin Weird.

What's your Sign? If you don't know it, you can go here to calculate it.


Please enter your Meyers Briggs 4 Letter Personality Type. We will be doing some fun things at Speed Friending with Personality Types to meet your match. Take the test here.

I'm hoping to find a bunch of friendly people and take it from there.


I'm a 12-year Austinite, originally from Ohio. Work from home, so I'm always making an effort not to turn into a hermit.
