Will Milne Will transported his taco-eating to Denton in the summer of 2005. He is a lifestyle/portrait photographer, Adobe expert and teaches photography for Denton ISD. He likes to argue about superheroes with his eight year old son and force his interests with the unfortunate people that choose to hang out near him. He will take credit for whatever he can, tell dumb jokes at the drop of a hat, and hates the Oxford commas.
Alyssa Stevenson Alyssa has chosen Denton life ever since the fall of 2004. She is a history teacher at Calhoun Middle School in the heart of the city. Inside the classroom she is passionate about politics - outside of the classroom she is passionate about food. When she isn't trying out a new recipe or scouting out a new restaurant, you can find her laughing loudly with friends on any patio that includes both cocktails and sunshine.
Glen Farris Glen has made Denton his home for longer than he'd like to admit. He makes a mean Old Fashioned, drinks insane amounts of coffee and is always on the hunt for rare recordings of pre-war blues. He can often be found feeding his very strange, but very real meeting addiction by sitting in on meetings all over town - though he prefers the meetings where Royal's famous cinnamon rolls are present.
WE DENTON DO IT CONTRIBUTORS
Sarah Odum has been a Dentonite for 6 years and counting. She loves scoping out the local art, music and food scene that fuels her love for this town, and then chatting about it with others over as much coffee as humanly possible. While most of her time is spent hanging with her two year old daughter, she also works in film photography and Spanish tutoring. She has a deep love for museums and for camping, and if an ideal day can’t include one of those things, it had better involve some Turner Classic Movies and the aforementioned cup of coffee.
Shaun Treat is a former professor at the University of North Texas and founder of the Denton Haunts historical ghost tour. Doc has written about numerous local places and personalities at his Denton Haunts blog, and is forever indebted to the great work of our local keepers of history like Mike Cochran and Laura Douglas at the Emily Fowler Library for their tireless work in helping preserve Denton’s intriguing past.
