I started Bouldin Creek Café in a 700 square foot shack in the summer of 2000. We were basically a coffee bar with a small menu of vegetarian food prepared in a tiny kitchen. We employed the artists, musicians, queers that had always had my heart. Over the years we gained a loyal following and our menu grew with the demand. By 2005 we were a full blown restaurant with lines out of the door on weekends.

I’m a professor of statistics and data science at UT, where I teach both in the McCombs School of Business and in the Department of Statistics and Data Sciences. I grew up in Katy, Texas and went to college here at UT, just like my mom before me. After graduating in 2004, I lived in England for two years to study math at Cambridge. Then I did my PhD in statistics at Duke University, and finally I got back to Texas as fast as I could.

RECIPE + PLAYLIST EPISODE #009 MAYOR STEVE ADLER

Mayor Steve Adler  was sworn into office in January 2015 and has focused primarily on Austin’s growing affordability crisis and worsening traffic.

Mayor Adler has received recognition for his innovative ideas and leadership. In Jun. 2017, his fellow mayors elected Mayor Adler a Trustee of the United States Conference of Mayors after putting him on the Advisory Board the previous year. In August 2016, Mayor Adler was voted by mayors surveyed by POLITICO Magazine as the co-winner of the Rookie of the Year award. In September 2016, Living Cities included Mayor Adler on the list of 25 Disruptive Leaders (along with Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg, author Ta-Nehihi Coates, and actor Jesse Williams) to mark that organization’s 25th anniversary. Also that month, his office’s application for a crowdsourced minibond campaign to save Austin’s iconic music venues was picked as one of five winners of the Neighborly Bonds Challenge.
