I love living in Austin with my wife, Katie, and my sons, Carson and Cooper, as well as listening to my favorite Austin band, Li’l Cap’n Travis.
But, let’s say you were to pin me down and ask me where else I’d choose to live if I weren’t living here. It’d probably be Stanley, Idaho.
There you’d find me doing my favorite things: cycling, running, eating, and traveling to go saltwater fishing.
In fact, if I couldn’t practice orthodontics, I’d probably be a fishing guide.
What else is on my list of favorites? Chicken fried steak.
Dislikes? Beets and weak coffee. Now for the serious stuff…
