Welcome home

Are you thinking of moving to Austin, TX?

I was in your shoes in 2004. I’ve lived in some great cities – Paris, LA, San Francisco, Charlotte –  seven cities in all since turning 18. And this is the first place that feels like home. You can do it too. And it will (hopefully) be less scary the more informed you are. Let me help you with the following:


Take a neighborhood quiz to find out where you should live. Or browse my neighborhood descriptions and find your own paradise.


Because sometimes finding a neighborhood isn’t just about the houses. Learn more about schools in Austin, TX here.


Obviously I’m going to talk about tacos. But I’ll also share info on commutes, local swimming holes, listening to live music, and of course food-focused festivals.

People don’t live in Austin to work, they work to live there.
