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

Michael Ulman

I am a found object, mixed media, sculptor from Boston. I share a studio with my father and we both sculpt using objects from the past repurposing them into art. I grew up helping my father in our old basement workshop construct his sculptures. Surrounded by hundreds of rusty metal objects learning to see their future life. Read more>>

Amanda Healy

I’m Amanda Healy and I’m a double agent: By “day” I run global marketing campaigns for a tech company based in Silicon Valley; by “night” I’m a national public speaker on the topic of personal branding + social media. Read more>>

Billie Weiss

In high school, I developed a casual interest in photography when my dad gave me his old Pentax film camera to fool around with. What started as a hobby turned into a passion in college, when I joined the student newspaper and started shooting on campus every day. Read more>>

Randy Susan Meyers

After years of working in jobs as disparate as bartending and being the assistant director for a batterer intervention program, in 2010, at the age of 57, St. Martin’s Press published my first novel. Many questions arise when people hear this–many of which boil down to “how?” Read more>>

Silvina Mizrahi

I was born and raised in the small town of Tucuman, Argentina. As a child, I made sculptures out of boxes and what I like to call “junk” found around the house. I received my degree in Fine Arts at the University of Tucuman. After earning that degree, I moved to Buenos Aires and I trained in sculpture under the supervision of different artists. Read more>>

Here, I organize community outreach events, such as workshops, film screenings, and panels, that support the physical, mental, and social health of LGBTQ+ people of color. Read more>>

Nicole Parks

I started playing violin in 6th grade in the public middle school. We were forced to choose an instrument or voice and I knew I didn’t want to sing. I really wanted to be a percussionist, but my parents very firmly said no, even though I had a year of piano lessons, which was the requirement to be a percussionist. Read more>>

Kaitlyn Burke

I am a musician, actress, arts manager, and composer who was born and raised in the Boston area. No one in my family had an interest in the arts, but music managed to draw me in at an early age!I went on to earn a B.A. in vocal performance from New York University, and perform with the Players Theatre, The York Theatre Company, and the Hudson Guild Theatre. Read more>>

Leah Palone

My love affair with bringing people together started long before I even gave it much consideration as a career (think high prom planning committee). I started on a path to law school while in college and (in between planning celebrations and coordinating buses to hockey games so we could have “fans” in the stands) quickly diverted from this path with the help and direction of an incredible mentor. Read more>>

Ashley Ellis

I started RubiaWear in the summer of 2014. I am a principal dancer for the Boston Ballet and, as is typical of most ballet companies, we have a layoff in each summer which can offer time to do other things. I’ve always enjoyed making things and I had played around with making some of my own dance wear in the past. Read more>>

Erin McCarthy

I am a texture freak. Rusty signs, seashells, tree bark, you name it. When I was very little, I remember being given chalk to play with outside on the sidewalk. The young rebellion artist in me immediately deemed the concrete canvas not good enough. Read more>>
