Arlington’s Rising Stars

The heart of our mission at VoyageDallas is to find the amazing souls that breathe life into our city. In the recent weeks we’ve had the privilege to connect with some of the Dallas-Fort Worth area’s finest artists, creatives, entrepreneurs and rabble rousers and we can’t begin to express how impressed we are with our city’s incredibly deep talent pool. Check out Arlington’s rising stars below.

Then while at a family reunion, Karen, Rick’s wife, noticed his sister, Laura, wearing a copper locket she made at a jewelry making workshop and brought it to Rick’s attention. Read more>>

Jacob Johnson

During my college years, I began to take notice of the issue of sex trafficking. It did not take long for me to come to the conclusion that I’ve got to do something about the problem. Lives and souls are being destroyed by grotesque physical abuse. Something must be done about it! Read more>>
