Tyler Anthony

I grew up south of the metroplex in Mansfield, Texas where my love for art began, and I have been involved in the creative world in some way ever since then. I can’t recall a time in my life that I wasn’t creating something or thinking of creating something. As a kid, I was always using my imagination, whether it was playing with G. I. Joes or drawing an elaborate self portrait or something hockey related. That creative spirit has always been part of me. Read more>>

I have been doing makeup for nine years. When I first started, I never saw it as a career, but only a fun hobby. When I worked for MAC cosmetics, I encouraged a lady that would change how I look at beauty forever. She was a middle-aged Hispanic woman. She came in to get color matched. I told her, of course! I wiped her and told her to take any remaining makeup off so we can color match her. Read more>>

Sarah Terkla

My boutique journey started like most, I think, I was sitting in a cubicle feeling unfulfilled. I was feeling like my time sitting there wasn’t worth the time I was spending away from my daughter and husband. My first step to where I am now was definitely a detour. I went back to school after already having a BS in Health Education. I started to take more science courses to apply to Physician Assistant School. Read more>>

Rusty Holloway

I’ve always been into art and music, but my most recent venture has been starting my podcast, “Rusty’s Escape Pod.” I released my first episode in June of 2019 and am currently editing my next two releases, which will be episodes 24 and 25. I originally gained interest in podcasting after I started listening to Sam Harris’ podcast. It was originally called “Waking Up” back then, but he changed the name in 2019 to “Making Sense” after launching his meditation app. Read more>>

Albert Rodriguez

I first put on a pair of boxing gloves at the age of ten and two weeks later, I was competing in my first amateur tournament. I can honestly say that since that time, my life and career have always involved boxing. For me, boxing and family were completely connected as my dad was my coach and my brothers all competed as well. I boxed as an amateur for much of my childhood and went pro at the age of 19. Read more>>

Patty Delcambre Said

You could say education is in my blood. Now retired, my mother taught Special Education. Her hometown’s first school, Delcambre College, was founded by her ancestors. My godfather was Principal of Delcambre High School and my cousin was principal of Delcambre Elementary School. Education is highly valued in our family. Read more>>

Imagine an eight year old girl, who as soon as December 26th hit (the day after Christmas) she starts planning her birthday party… That’s in July – that girl was me! I have loved planning and styling my own parties since I was a child! Fast forward to my adult years and now I have turned the love that I had as a child into a reality. Read more>>

Michael Zavala

I love to talk. I’ve enjoyed talking for as long as I can remember. I used to record myself for hours on my little Bugs Bunny cassette recorder when I was a kid. That would later turn into a journey of voice overs, audio production, and radio. In 2006, I started an online radio show with some friends that became pretty successful and later spun into syndication. Read more>>

Ryan Sword

We originally started the band in 2016. In 2018 we decided to relocate to Denton. Due to this decision, it was just a former member and I. Since then, we have released two singles and 1 EP. We have faced many obstacles but continue to push through. Read more>>

Naomi Peterson

I grew up in a teensy town in Illinois (no, definitely not Chicago) and naturally, like any antsy little Midwestern budding artist, I wanted to get out as fast as I could. After getting my Associates at a community college, I decided to move out west to big sky country, aka Wyoming. Read more>
