About Me

Warda 2007

Athlete, architect, creature of the Earth.

I try to live by the Caveman pact. Hunt with courage, live wisely, live simply, give thanks for you sustenance. Most folks think the Caveman is an outdated, unsophisticated, dumb creature. They couldn’t be more far from the truth. In fact, Cavemen were very tough, strong, intelligent, emotional beings. Not only did they have to ward off predators, harsh environmental conditions, and sometimes scarce food availability, they were very in touch with nature and with themselves,  qualities many a modern man has lost. I am very proud to emulate the Caveman way of living as much as I can, and I encourage you to try the same. If you’re wondering why they call me Caveman, click here.

I am an athlete by nature. I have killer thighs that were designed for battle against the mightiest of beast and foe, and the most grueling of farm and carpentry work. However, since the world has become industrialized, I have no need for either. Thus I put my thighs to work by kicking tail.  Mountain biking is my favorite way to do so, but I would be weak,  unskilled, and boring if I limited myself to a single event, so I throw in some running, swimming, cyclocross, and yes, even road racing to mix things up. Competition keeps me sharp, but truly, being outside and enjoying God’s great earth is what it’s all about.  Snow skiing, water skiing, canoeing, sailing, backpacking, spelunking, bouldering, hiking, camping, and festival-going are all activities that I  enjoy.

I was born and raised in the North Texas town of Terrell, but after coming down to Austin for a bachelor degree at the greatest educational institution in the Lone Star state, let alone the nation, I saw no reason to leave!

I have a real day job as an architect. It’s a very difficult 5 year degree, and at least another 3 years of internship and stringent testing (some say harder than the equivalent Bar exam for lawyers) before licensure. The pay isn’t great, but I love what I do.  It’s really kind of hard to imagine what else I would do for a living If I weren’t drawing and designing buildings, the things that you, as an average American, will spend about 90% of your life in (scary, isn’t it?) Check out the firm I work for here.

I am a God-fearing man and give Him all the glory, when there is glory to be had. Sometimes my bike breaks and the glory goes to another guy. I am at least still honored to have the opportunity to achieve glory. I can do all things through Him who strengthens me.

The crow flies straight. I’m not really sure what this means, because a crow doesn’t always fly straight, but it’s an interesting lyric from a song I like.

If you wish to contact me directly with questions, info, sponsorship info, or anything else, shoot me an email.

    Hey Aardvark, I would like to see you post some sort of Table or chart that just shows the race data (type, length, etc) and results. Or is it here somewhere and I am missing it?
