Just as every person has a story, every town in Texas has countless stories that recount it’s heritage, personality and appeal. “City Stories” is a project which began in 2018 seeking to preserve the people, places and events that have shaped the Lone Star State. Through both images and words, “City Stories” endeavors to capture the essence of each town in a positive, uplifting and memorable form. To explore the pictures and prose commemorating these city stories, visit the project thumbnails below.
In 2023, St. Joseph Catholic Church in Bryan, Texas celebrates its 150th anniversary.

"Celebrating Navasota" is an art exhibition designed to capture both the vibrance and nostalgia which exist within the confines of the historic town. The exhibit and companion book are intended to also raise donations and awareness for a yet-to-be-determined Navasota-area nonprofit organization. (Coming late summer 2021.)

Although steeped in the rich history of Texas A&M University, College Station is a vibrant and fascinating place unto itself.
