Inspiring Stories from Central Dallas

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 the rising stars of Central Dallas below.

Billy Wilson and Paul Davey

eCig Distributors (ECD) was started as a result of a friendship I had with my business partner Paul Davey. Paul had recently quit smoking traditional cigarettes and moved to electronic e-cigarettes (ecigs) as a method of harm reduction. Paul was so impressed with the life changing results that he started telling all of his friends and family about it. Read more>>

The Admin Awards was inspired by my Mother, a career Executive Secretary.

An old friend recently remarked, “You’ve always been a healer – way before any school or certifications,” and this is true.

How many people can trace their brewing roots back to their mom? Well, Michael Peticolas’s mom, Jacque Peticolas, started brewing a Mexican styled beer at her El Paso home in the mid-1990s.

James Wallace

Well, I loved movies as long as I can remember! That’s all I ever wanted to do – be a part of movies somehow. But I was always more fascinated with the behind-the-scenes stuff.

A few years ago I had a “come to Jesus moment” where I realized that I was at a crossroads in my life.
