What is your favorite thing about working for Tiny Tails to You?
I love being able to educate future animal and wildlife lovers by showing kids how to love and respect animals. Businesses like Tiny Tails are what got me into wildlife at an early age.
Where are you from? How long have you lived in Austin?
I’m originally from Grand Rapids, Michigan, and I moved to Austin in October 2018.
Where is your favorite place in Austin, and why?
Either Austin Vintage Guitars off Red River Road or Balcones Wildlife Sanctuary just outside of Cedar Park. I'm a big vintage guitar nerd and Austin Vintage has probably the best collection and staff around. Balcones is one of my favorite places to hike here, especially Warbler Vista and Doeskin Ranch.
What is something you are really passionate about right now?
I'm really passionate about music and wildlife conservation.
What do you do outside of working at Tiny Tails to You (hobbies, other work, etc…)?
I'm a music teacher and musician outside of Tiny Tails. I play in a Rush tribute band and also a couple of my own side projects throughout the week. I'm also a wildlife biologist so any free time I have I'm usually out hiking looking for snakes and lizards :).
