The Castle Hill 5, or The Same Five Questions We Ask Everyone: 

 

How long have you been in Austin and where were you before? 

I have lived in Austin for over 10 years. I have worked in Austin for 17 years. Before I moved here, I lived in Fredericksburg, Texas.

Austin is known as the Live Music Capital of the World, what’s the best live music show you have ever seen? 

Bruce Springsteen’s Born in the USA tour.

What food would you eat 5 times a day if you could? 

The Tex Mex food group.

If you were stranded on a desert island, what 3 exercises would you do to stay healthy?

  1. Pilates, of course!
  2. Running in the sand…my feet love it.
  3. Intense napping and meditation…why burn too many calories?
