We organized a farmers market in 2009 at the Firewheel Town Center in Garland, TX. Over 65 vendors were brought together every Saturday in order to create what became one of the largest farmers market in North Texas. Since then, we have organized over 40 public and private Markets. Recognizing a deviation from traditional brick and mortar entrepreneurship and a growing appetite for local, small-batched goods, we set out to identify the best quality artisanal products and connect buyers and sellers. Read more>>

Several years ago, I started a little hobby-business restoring and repurposing old furniture and found items. I started reselling in a local shop, then eventually at the many vintage shows and trunk shows in the area. It makes my heart happy to save some of those amazing old pieces from the landfill and give them a new life. And its very gratifying when things get snatched up as fast I as could bring them to the shows. It was a lot of fun! Junkin’ around to look for pieces to relove, meeting other vendors, doing the shows and making a little bit of money in the process. Read more>>

My first encounter with letterpress printing was in 2001 at an exhibition of monoprints and concert posters by Hatch Show Print.

I’ve always loved organizing. At a young age, whenever I would visit my dad at work, I’d start straightening up all the papers on his desk and asking him, “Do you need this?” and if not, encouraging him to throw it away. I quickly discovered the rest of my family was also prone to clutter, so I developed a passion for organization early on and gained lots of practice through the years. Read more>>

My journey started 12 years back when I entered the education industry. I opened up a franchise for teaching kids Math and Reading, called Kumon.

As a former student-athlete, natural leader, and follower of Christ, I had been blessed with multiple opportunities in life.
