The heart of our mission at VoyageATL is to find the amazing souls that breathe life into our city.

My dream career was in the fashion industry. I started working in boutiques when I was 16, interned in NYC at Harper’s Bazaar and constantly dreamt of living in NYC or LA. When it came time to actually graduate and move somewhere, my heart couldn’t leave the South. Atlanta is such a big city and has so much, but it just didn’t have the creative appeal that the other cities had. Read more>>

As a young girl, I was fascinated with my parent’s camera and would mess with it every opportunity I could. I would shoot on automatic thinking I was the best photographer in the world.
