I am a full-time University Professor of Athletic Training and Sports Medicine. I also teach tennis part-time and own a company that promotes live music events. I was born and raised in Opelousas, Louisiana but I have been living in Lafayette most of my life and enjoy giving suggestions about what to do and where to go in the area.
I also enjoy cooking, running, lifting weights, yoga, Tae Kwon Do, and most of all attending live music events.
One of my latest goals is to travel as much as possible. I have backpacked 10 countries in Europe staying mostly in hostels and I most recently traveled for 2 months across the Western United States staying in over a dozen airbnb homes including an RV, a tepee, and a completely solar-powered dome shelter in the Texas desert!
My latest adventure took place this Christmas Break as I toured 3 countries in South America, including Uruguay, Argentina, and Brazil.
I also enjoy talking about and showing off the area where I live ... Acadiana.
