Midtown’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 Midtowns’s rising stars below.

Jennifer Crosby

I graduated from The Art Institute of ATL in 1992 in Interior Design and began my own Company in 2000. Today, I have Crosby Design Group a full-service Interior Design firm. We have two locations for our different studios, our Commercial designers are out of our midtown location off of Piedmont Park and Residential designers work in our Roswell Design center. We focus on Multifamily and Builder services however we design for hospitality, student housing and Corporate projects as well. I also started a Furniture Procurement company in 2015 named Crosby Decor Solutions and recently just added a partnership to include all warehousing logistics in house to offer a full turn key service to our clients. Read more>>

It’s a simple philosophy: When your business grows, our business grows. We are in this together.

We have aligned the industry’s best practices with Carceron’s core values – expert-level competency, straight-forward reliability, and unconditional customer satisfaction – to reduce costs, prevent downtime, and increase productivity. Read more>>

Dexter Humphrey

Jasa Leadership Group is an educational resource firm which develops products, strategies, and initiatives for students, parents and academic leaders. Education has always been my purpose and passion. After graduating with my first of three degrees in Electrical Engineering from Louisiana State University, I accepted a full-time position with Delco Electronics. Seeking to pursue my educational passions, I resigned from Delco Electronics to start my educational & business consulting firm. Read more>>

Theresa Childs

In 2013 we opened a small studio to teach kids and adults how to sew. Today we operate a 1600 sq. ft. space with multiple classrooms on Howell Mill Rd. Sewing is still our most popular course offering but we now teach a number of skills-based classes including knitting, hand embroidery, loom weaving, paper crafts and macrame. Some people are naturally crafty but I think the maker movement has helped fuel our growth. While technology is amazing, nothing beats creating something with your own two hands and we’re using this opportunity to introduce more people to skills that they can utilize for a lifetime. Read more>>

Tyler Ogburn

I have been taking pictures for as long as I can remember. I worked and saved my money when I was 13 and bought a camera and a computer in the same summer. In 2008, I opened Tyler Ogburn Photography and used that business to sort of supplement my income through college and over the years. In 2016, I was working in my 4th year in retail and I just felt like I wasn’t making a difference in anyone’s life. So I put in my two week notice in July and in August I opened my studio in Roswell, and ultimately ended up in West Atlanta. I haven’t looked back since. Read more>>
