So I have officially made the move to San Antonio. I got here in July and have been settling in ever since. I have started a tenure track job at the University of Incarnate Word where I am in charge of a new Convergent Media program in the Communication Arts department.
My life is flying by pretty fast. My turbo MGM has been in the shop since May as I am having a fully built motor put in. I bought a daily driver as well… a BMW 3.35 coupe, it is a pretty sweet car to say the least. I never thought I would buy a BMW but alas after driving almost every car I could think of it is what I ended up with.
My students at UIW are awesome and we are having a great time building up the program. It is really a ground up process and I am learning a lot from them. My boss Hank is awesome and a great mentor so far. I have had the fortune to have Austin geeks and musicians make their way down to campus and put on some shows and lectures for my students and it has been a killer way to infect them with creativity and also give some of my UT graduates/students some perspective on what a small school is like.
As some of you may guess I have received some flack for the way I look and dress but what can I say it is part of who I am 🙂 I guess a Holmes graduate like me was never fully curated to be a fixture of San Antonio’s higher society… 🙂 I am still dealing with it almost daily here in San Antonio.
I went on my first post-school vacation this weekend with my Family and had a great time. It was a trip to the coast and it turned out pretty well, lots of fishing and swimming.
As for the near future I am working on many projects and attending a few conferences. If you have any suggestions please clue me in as I am new to this town in a weird way.
I will be attending the Texas Mile this month and I will have a full report on ctxcarscene.com, so be ready for that. As soon as my MGM is done I will take it to the track along with some other radical cars I hope to do a profile on.
So stay tuned!
