More about Cybertoad...

The Basics:I love Texas wildflowers! (April 2002)

It's Cybertoad!I was born and raised in Houston, Texas and love it! It's a great city with a lot of hidden spots to check out. And did you realize that it's the 4th largest city in the United States? If you ever want to visit, I can tell you where to go. Check out these impressive facts about Houston or read our local newspaper, the Houston Chronicle.

My background is Cuban-American. My parents left Cuba in 1968 and finally settled in Houston in 1971 with my sister - I came around a couple of years later to complete the family. As a result, my first language was Spanish and I have continued to stay fluent. I also studied 4 years of French and am able to read it and understand it spoken (but only if it's spoken slowly)! Click here to see a few pictures of me and my family.

Academic Building at Texas A&MI went to college at Texas A&M University in little old College Station where after 3 degree changes and 5 years I graduated with a B.A. in International Studies, Latin American Option in 1996. Several of my trips were made while at A&M through university sponsored programs - one of the best ways to get some traveling done at low costs while earning university credits.

Me & my hubby in London (09/2003).I also married a computer engineer whom I met here in Houston in October 1998. His name is Kenny and happens to be an Aggie as well. We spent our honeymoon in Europe.

Most Recent News:

Me & my hubby in Boston (10/24/2003)More recently we bought our 1st home (April 2002), traveled to London (09/03) and celebrated our 5th wedding anniversary in Boston (10/03). Also, after 3 job losses in only two years, I hope that I can finally settle down in my current position as an assistant to a professor/department director at a local university. I also intend to go back to school since I am working right there on campus and pursue a graduate degree (probably an MBA). I hope to start this in the Fall of 2004.



Other Interests:

I enjoy blogging, photography (especially black and white), traveling, surfing the internet, basic web-design, reading, spending time with friends, going out to dinner, exercising my Spanish, maintaining my 30-gal. tropical fish tank, organizing social events, listening to music (all kinds), spending time with my husband and napping with my miniature dachshund, Ginger and our recent addition, Heidi, a cockapoo (part Cocker Spaniel, part poodle).

Our dogs Ginger & Heidi.
