WHEN I'M NOT DOING MARKETING...
Some of my very favorite things in the world are bikes, boarding, and BBQ! In my downtime I ride my motorcycle as much as I can exploring the natural beauty around me and feeling the wind on my bald head. I have been snowboarding since I was in high-school and love carving on fresh pow. And last but not least, BBQ is my absolute favorite food! Since moving to Austin, the capital of Texas and of American BBQ, I have been eating to my heart’s content.
