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.

The Jameson Fog started as a musical project in 1994, under the name Marigold. After many years, The Jameson Fog was officially formed in spring 2015 with Jason Korman and Nicolas Chirinos. Jason Korman, the most talented bass guitarist in DFW, met up with Nicolas in Arlington, and after a 15 hour jam session, the two began to build what’s known as, “The Foggy Family Sound”. Read more>>

I’ve always been a fan of photography. My love for it progressed when I signed up for Instagram about 4 years ago. I started posting mostly landscapes and city pictures. From there, I grew a local following and then the inquiries started to come in. My first session I ever did was a maternity session on Turtle Creek in Dallas TX. Read more>>
