Inspiring Stories from Fenway, Symphony & Jamaica Plain

The heart of our mission at the BostonVoyager 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 Boston’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 the rising stars from Fenway, Symphony, Jamaica Plain and surrounding areas below.

The Video Underground first opened in 2002 in Jamaica Plain’s Hyde Square. Initially seeking to cater to those with non-mainstream tastes in film and television, The Video Underground quickly carved out a place in Jamaica Plain as a social and cultural hub. Read more>>

My background is in elder care. It was a labor of love. I was devoted but broke. To supplement my income I developed a passion for thrifting into a small scale resale business. I sold the items I sourced at thrift stores and those my clients no longer used for cash we both dearly needed. Read more>>

Photography has been my hobby since I received my first “real” camera in high school in the 1980s, a Canon AE-1. I was photography editor of my high school yearbook and learned to develop my own black and white prints. Read more>>

I bake out of my home in Hyde Park. I started back in 2010 I believe, just because I was bored and wanted something sweet. I didn’t have any box cake mix so I decided to try and make some cupcakes from scratch. That’s when I fell in love with cupcakes and baking. I mostly did it for fun but occasionally had someone order. Read more>>

Nothing brings a room together like putting the audience members on a stage. Its a world where anything can happen, and it will. That’s why I started going to comedy open mics, and now I run one. It’s so much fun, a lot of people just come to watch. Read more>>

My father is an artist and designer, and my mother and stepfather worked as printers at the Detroit Free Press. So from my teens, I wanted to work as a journalist, and photojournalism came quickly after. In college, I took some classes in J-school, but became interested in politics and earned my degree in Political Science. Read more>>

David Elliott

We purchased Taylor House in 1995 after an afternoon of cycling in the neighborhood. It was named after George Taylor, an International Merchant who lived on Beacon Hill, who built it as a summer home in 1853. When we purchased the house, each of us was seeking a career change—Daryl Bichel was an assistant director at the Harvard School of Public Health and Dave Elliott worked in computer training for banks. Read more>>

The origin of HealthChannels dates back to 2004 with the founding of ScribeAmerica. When we began, ScribeAmerica was the nation’s only professional medical scribe company. Today we remain the largest and most frequently used scribe company, helping providers achieve better health outcomes for their patients. Read more>>

Manipura Body & Mind began as a hobby. I work in the food industry and first began creating my lip balms and bath bombs while I was General Manager of Squeeze Juice Company. I was growing frustrated with being unable to find high-quality vegan bath and skin care products that were free of chemicals and didn’t test on animals. Read more>>
