Daniel loves exploring Dallas' growing food scene and hitting the Katy Trail as often as he can. An avid soccer fan, you'll find him kicking it on the soccer fields all across town throughout the year. Give him a shout if you have the inside scoop at any new foodie spots in town.

Although she wasn't born in Dallas, Marina got here as fast as she could. An amateur artist herself, Marina loves the Dallas Arts District and she's a big fan of the Late Nights at the Dallas Museum of Art (and all the food trucks!)

Diana has lived in Dallas for the past six years and quickly got to know the city. A former resident of the Bishop Arts District, Diana now resides in the Oak Lawn neighborhood of Uptown and loves the convenience of tons of great places to eat nearby. Diana's your go-to person for the coolest spin studios in the city and she's always down for a Happy Hour outing to Chuy's on Knox (the salsa there is amazing!)
