As a broke college student, I found a super good deal for tickets to New York City and with half my classes cancelled for the week, I decided to treat myself and visit the Big Apple.      I wandered the streets of Manhattan and the NYU area, got some street shots and some pics of myself but honestly, I kind of...

With the bright winter sun beaming down on us, my models and I made our way out to the ghost town of Bartlett, Texas to take photos at a place with the charm of the wild west.

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to visit Houston as a tourist? Well, with this guide, you can do just that, and pretend that just for one day, you are a wide-eyed visitor hoping to explore everything H-Town has to offer. 9 a.m. It’s breakfast time, and the first stop on your travel list should be...

If you find yourself in a rut, maybe what you really need is to spend some time outdoors, disconnecting from your cellphone reconnecting with all that nature has to offer.

Anthony Romero is many things — an American, concerned citizen, voter and the Executive Director of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), a post he’s held since September, 2001. Seven days before 9/11, to be exact. A group that has argued more suits in the Supreme Court than any non-governmental...

Alley Theatre’s new production of “The Humans” is too funny and too real, but in good ways. This Tony Award-winning play offers a look into the lives of the Blake family, but it feels like looking into a mirror. I could see my family in theirs. The dreams and secrets of each generation and family member are...

Going into the theater on Saturday afternoon, I had absolutely no idea what was in store for me.  I hadn’t seen a single trailer.
