I took this while hiking through the Andes in Spring of 1995, during my year
of teaching at El Camino Academy in
Hi! So you found me. I live in Austin, TX and work at the Texas Primary Care OfficeDepartment of State Health Services.
I originally moved to Austin to go to grad school at The University of Texas at Austin - Hook 'Em
Horns! I love living in Austin, even though I am not a native Texan; I grew up
in south central Kansas (Toto, we are NOT in Kansas anymore). In 1989, I
graduated from Kansas State University - GO
Cats! - the only school I love more than UT. During my summers between school, I
worked at Kanakuk-Kanakomo Kamps, Inc. in
Branson, MO. It was my home away from home for several years.
I am involved in my church here in Austin, The Fellowship at Scofield Farms, leading the Women's Ministry. In my spare time, I like reading, watching movies, listening to music, hanging out with friends and working on genealogy. I'll be adding new links and pictues; so check back from time to time to see if anything has changed.
Family History &
These are pictures & pages that tell you something about parts of my life
and who I am. There are a couple of cool scenery shots and pictures of my
Some of these are real places, and some of them are virtual places. Some of
them are places I've visited and a couple are places I would like to visit.
- Kansas State University, my alma matter!
You can find out anything you want to know about the school or the Alumni Association. You can also visit K-State's sport's page
Flint Hills This is where I grew up - in the Flint Hills of Kansas. I
found this page as part of the K-State Football site
that is maintained by fans (Gotta love those K-State Fans!). See, not all of
Kansas is flat.
- The Fellowship at Scofield Farms, Austin, TX
- Vatican City In September 2009 I took a trip to Italy, and loved visiting the Vatican. We also went to Venice, which really is sinking into the ocean, and Florence. One big lesson is that 'Bed & Breakfast' in Venice, doesn't mean the same thing as it does in the US.
- Israel I was able to do a 2 week study tour in November 2005 through FEFC. It was a wonderful trip. The pics are in my Israel 2005 Yahoo! Photo Album You can also see what's currently going on at the Western (Wailing) Wall Live Cam
- Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) I went there in January 2007 on a missions vision trip to work at the Hospital in Tandala.
- Table Rock Lake.
The view from the church at Kanakuk-Kanakomo
Kamps, #2 is great at sunset.
- Macchu Picchu I've never
been to there, but I thought this was a cool picture with the llama in it. I
fell in love with the Andes when I was teaching at El Camino Academy, a school for the
children of missionaries in Bogota, Colombia, S.A. Bill & Angela Louden who are teachers at
the school also have a page on their site for ECA.
- Amazon.com I've found things here that
I couldn't find anywhere else, and don't travel without taking my Kindle with me.
- Star Trek. OK so I'm a trekkie; not
a bad as some, worse than others. I also like Stargate SG-1.
- Mark Lowry's ReMarkable Site. Mark
is a Christian Comedian/Singer and has some great stuff on his site.
I started working on my genealogy a couple years ago to find out if I was
related to one of my friends. I still haven't proved it; but have found some new
cousins along the way; and am starting to get a better idea of who I am and
where I come from. It's also Addictive! Each of these pages has links to my
other genealogy pages by surname. Some of them are still in Progress.
I really got started on the whole genealogy thing from talking with mom.
She used to tell me all kinds of stories when I was young, mainly about our family.
Sometimes I think I should have listened more than I did. We lost mom in April 2002, and
I miss her a lot. I also miss my brother Danny who we lost in 2007.
I'm hoping to be able to update the pictures from time to time as I get new
pictures of my friends either scanned in or processed on disk. And as I find out
about web pages, I'll add those too; but can't promise to get all of them or to
get them in a timely manner. I'm already having to do some backtracking on
I also have pictures on my Facebook page.
They say you can be known by the company you keep, so the pics and sites
below say a lot about me and who I am.
