Can you sum up Houston? Houston is the fourth largest city in the U.S. and is 600 square miles of flat land. Although it isn’t one of my favorite places to be, it’s where I call home. It has its perks though, really great food and a big art community.

If someone was visiting, what must they do? When in Houston something you need to do is visit the art and science museums, and eat at some of the local food joints.

Best meal in Houston? This is the hardest question to answer, because I love food! My favorite would have to be tacos though; Torchy’s Tacos or any street taco really.

How long have you been using Instagram? A little over 2 years now.

What phone camera do you use to shoot? Around 2 months ago I upgraded to the iPhone 5, everything before was iPhone 4s.

What apps do you use, if any to edit your photos? Lately I’ve really been into VSCO cam, but I have two folders of editing apps on my phone. Sometimes I’ll use apps like Art Studio and Photoforge to manipulate scenes and add in objects like, hot air balloons, or cars.

Do you create images outside of Instagram? My sister and I have shot photos for a band and I’ve taken a few photos here and there, but not much. Other than a few film cameras, my iPhone is my only camera! Whatever I create usually ends up on Instagram.

Who are your three favorite Instagrammers? This is really is a tough one! There are so many great Instagrammers, but the top three would have to be: @jimmymarble, @ddent & @andygrellmann.
