Introduction

I've traveled the world rather extensively for my years, and seek to find and capture the unifying forces between cultures. We are more alike than we realize, sometimes we just need to see it to believe it.

In short: I like taking pictures.

I love meeting up with photographers. Whether you live in Austin or just happen to be passing through, don't hesitate to send me a message!

Bragging rights
One day I'll have something to brag about...until then I'll just keep taking photos.

I really enjoyed my stay at Hotel Encanto. The lobby was absolutely beautiful and offered plenty of food offerings. The hotel was centrally located near the newer part of town - plenty of bars and restaurants within walking distance as well. Unfortunately I arrived on Christmas Eve so the bar and club area was closed, as were most things in town, but I knew that was likely to be the case going in. The room itself was comfortable, if a little dated. Wifi was a bit slow, but not unbearably so. Overall a positive experience, and for the price, I'd definitely come back again.

I really tried my best to enjoy my stay here, but a few issues kept me from getting full satisfaction - issues that I feel the hotel could have very easily remedied. The biggest issue was the key. Every time I left my room and returned after more than an hour or two, my key would stop working. After the first 2-3 times it happened, I started making preemptive trips to the front desk requesting that my key be checked. They always said the key was working, but it never was. After the 4th day there, they said they would send maintenance to check on my door (something they should have done after the first...6-7 times maybe?) but by that point it was time for me to check out. It didn't help that I was at the end of the hall on the top floor either. Aside from that, the hotel was nice. Breakfast wasn't bad although about half of the plates in the "clean" section still had bits of food caked onto them. The room itself was nice though and the location was convenient. They just need to pay a little closer attention to some easy to fix issues and all will be well.

Unfortunately, my experience at Hacienda Hotel was not very favorable. I was running late for a meeting when I checked in, so I speedily raced to the hotel lobby to get my key. I booked a 2 bed room online, and was asked if I wanted 2 beds or 1, so I requested 2 beds again. The hotel is big, very spread out. I made the 4-5 minute walk across the plaza and up to the 9th floor, opened my room and noticed that there was only 1 bed. So I ran back down, to the front desk, got my new room, and was late to my meeting by this point. When I got back to the hotel a couple hours later, my room key had stopped working. Once again I had to make the walk back to the hotel lobby to get a new key, which finally worked. The room itself smelled very musty and I woke up pretty itchy, so I wouldn't be surprised if the bed was not so clean. I will give them an extra star for proximity to LAX and the free shuttle they offer 24/7. That's the primary reason I booked it and ultimately it all worked out. It was just not a very pleasant experience.

I don't know if I've ever felt as Texan in my life as the moment I walked into The Cosmopolitan last week to check into my room. I mistakenly went in through the wrong entrance, resulting in a 5-6 minute walk through the swanky, uber-chic casino. I, of course, was wearing some big ol' brown boots, brown leather jacket and bag - essentially, I went with the wrong color scheme. All that aside, the experience was great. I ended up conversing with the hotel receptionist for a good 10 minutes, discussing the similarities and differences between Texas and Las Vegas (despite what they say, everyone loves talking about the weather). After checking me in she noticed that my floor was going to have its water shut off from 2-5am. Of course, that's my prime time for showering and she must have realized that, since she ended up giving me a complimentary upgrade to the top floor (okay, one below the top...second to top just sounds awkward). I got the room for a great price, since I was there during off-season on a random Wednesday night. The bed was extremely comfortable and my view of the strip was wonderful. Overall a great experience - I'll definitely stay here again.

I enjoyed my stay at Isleta. The staff was friendly and gave us a room on the top floor, although the view wasn't anything particularly grand. The room itself was comfortable - the bed was soft and the bathroom large. I walked around the casino for a few minutes after I got in and won about a buck, so that always makes the experience better (I'm not hard to please apparently). Overall the hotel was pretty, the room was nice, and the value was good. Nothing that blew me away but nothing to disappoint either.

I was fortunate enough to stay at The Mondrian last week on a business trip (I'm sure paying full price could have changed my opinion a bit). From check in to check out, the experience was great. Staff was friendly, and the beds were extremely comfortable. I stayed for a total of 3 days so I was able to experience most of the hotel accommodations, from the rooftop pool (which really isn't on a rooftop, I don't know why they call it that) to a party in the penthouse. The location is great, I was able to walk to a lot of cool landmarks that were not quite as cool as the hotel, but I couldn't very well stay at the hotel the entire time (as comfy as it was). I must say though, the room service is pricey. We're talking double digit orange juice served in a wine glass. But I won't go into cost/value as much on this review and opt instead for a discussion on the overall experience. The room itself was not huge, but beautifully decorated. The free toiletries were wonderful as well (Malin + Goetz), so they definitely didn't skimp out there. When I first walked into the room I noticed a large column with a double-sided oval mirror attached to it. I tried asking it questions, but apparently it wasn't "the" mirror on the wall. It was actually a TV, cleverly hidden inside. Very cool.

One of my favorite spots in Austin. Amazing service, great menu, and a beautiful, relaxing atmosphere. The wait can get a bit long on some days, but it's well worth the wait.
