Buckhead’s Rising Stars

The heart of our mission at VoyageATL 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 Atlanta’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 Buckhead’s rising stars below.

Silvia Bimblich

I was born in Maracaibo, Venezuela in 1988. Moved to Atlanta, GA in 2011. Since I was a girl, enjoyed to see my grandmother sewing with an old sewing machine. this inspired me to learn about sewing and take up the family’s tradition. Read more>>

Instead of telling you where I was born, I can tell you what my DNA is made of. I am about 50% European, 25% Native American (Navajo), 15% African, and 10% Arabic. I consider myself a human of the world and not of any country in particular. Read more>>

Cara Reid

I often recall my first acting role as a bumble bee in the kindergarten play. While all the other children sang timidly and swayed back and forth emulating the director, I ran off the stage and buzzed my way through the audience. I made sure to buzz down every aisle by every seat in the auditorium. Read more>>

Lorell Frysh

I was born and raised in South Africa and lived there until I was 24 years old. I have lived and have traveled extensively in many parts of the world, and moved to the USA in 1981. Through my experiences of many cultural viewpoints, and from my own inner journey, I have developed a deep awareness of the interconnection of all things. Read more>>

Shaye Strager

My career path certainly has led me to exactly where I want to be today– but it took some windy roads to get here. I graduated college with a dual degree in Visual & Spoken Communications and English, so my first job was at a news station in Roanoke, VA. From there, I became a spokesperson for a wellness company (using my television and public speaking experience) which led me to Washington, DC. Read more>>

Sarah Rhino

The Peach Pit @ Collier Road opened after years of planning and dreaming of what I could do different and better than other studios. I combined everything that I wanted as an athlete, a coach and a mom into one place. Read more>>

Sarah Wisted

It’s funny. Anytime someone asks me how I got started in blogging, I don’t know exactly how to answer the question. The reality is, I’ve been interested in talking about clothing and other design aspects for years now and I think blogging was an easy transition for me. Read more>>

Shane Nelson

Filmmaking was always a passion of mine but more-so a hobby in my younger years. I can remember making our first films while in grade school. Along with my neighbor and best-friend, Brennan, we would rally up the neighborhood kids and go down to the park and film movies. We filmed our own versions of hits like Jurassic Park and Star Wars. Read more>>

Mollye Rhea

I founded For Momentum 15 years ago, having spent the formative years of my career in marketing in agency, corporate and nonprofit sectors. Our agency is focused at the intersection of these 3 cultures. For Momentum establishes and supports partnerships between companies and nonprofits that advance the missions of both partners. Read more>>

Chaise Helaine Tinsley

As a designer turned photographer, I’ve explored many corners of creative. What I’ve found along the way is that I adore photography. It speaks to my heart in the same way a good song can speak to our souls. I’ve always had a fascination with memories and the way they shape our feelings and decisions for years to come. Read more>>
