I’m a writer/editor living in Silicon Valley. California is a fantastic place to live. The diversity, the food, and the natural beauty make NorCal a unique microcosm of the best the world has to offer. However, my heart yearns for home: Texas. The diversity, food, natural beauty, and my amazing friends and family make Texas my forever home. I return to Texas when life gets the best of me. For me, Texas is like that moment when you’re at a concert and the band finally plays your favorite song. Arms in the air, throat open, and for a moment, a brief moment, all is right in the world and the pain skips a beat.
