Local Experts: Austin, Sarah Beckman

I'm a writer and editor who loves the friendliness and creativity (not to mention all the great food) of Austin, Texas. Good thing, since I’ve lived in the Texas town since 1999. I was the travel editor for the Austin American-Statesman newspaper, where I covered local events, fitness, and tech scenes, and led coverage of the South by Southwest.
