Who Is Sam Byrd?

I am a local Houstonian and raging loudmouth who loves Mexican food, Britney Spears, and a good show at the theatre.

As a graduate from Houston Baptist University (double major in marketing and business administration) and an alum of University of Houston (MBA), I’ve spent more than a decade working in public relations before joining a marketing team at a local university as their copy writer.

Over the years, I’ve developed a passion for journalism, entertainment, and media. So, I decided to do what any person would do with those three passions – I rolled them all into one and began my journey as a journalist who helps explore the unique sights and sounds of Houston’s cultural scene – including drag!
