Discover Austin: Natural Bridge Wildlife Ranch (Episode 80)
Natural Bridge Wildlife Ranch is not only a giraffe and rhino conservation facility, it offers visitors the opportunity to get up-close to animals from around the world. Join me as I feed native, exotic, & endangered animals right from my car as I drive-thru the safari.
Discover Austin: Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center (Episode 77)
Lady Bird Johnson was an advocate for the beautification of our nation and highways, so it should come as no surprise that the botanical garden of Texas bears her name. I visit the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center in this episode of Discover Austin.
Discover Austin: The Alamo - Extended Version
This road trip episode of Discover Austin is different than most. Usually I narrate as the video shows our subject. When I went to the Alamo, the director of Education, Sherri Driscoll, was a gracious host and has a huge depth of knowledge. After she shared the history of the Alamo, I decided to scrap the original script I had and just have the Alamo history be the narration for this episode. As it turns out, though, Sherri shared a lot of history with me so we created an extended length version for you

Discover Austin: The Domain (Episode 46)

Discover Austin: Din Ho Chinese BBQ (Episode 45)
While Chinese food and barbecue don't seem like they should be paired together, Din Ho Chinese BBQ is here to prove that they should! Local food blogger, Michael Zook and I went to enjoy their specialty dishes for this episode of Discover Austin Eats.
