We had the good fortune of connecting with Julie Gray and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Julie, how does your business help the community?
Building an interactive creative gallery for Houstonians.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I am most proud of how far I’ve come along despite the hardships I’ve endured in life. I was in a really dark place a few years ago and art really helped me find myself and became a gateway to happiness for me.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
We would definitely hit up the galleria for some shopping, eat at my good friend Ryan’s restaurant Riel, have a drink or two le colonial, obviously hang out at my business, PLAYHAUS, and go for coffee at Tony’s No. 5!

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I’d like to dedicate my shout out to all the women out there who are striving to make a difference in the world today!
