Dana DuTerroil grew up in Houston during the AstroWorld era and returned in 2008 to the nation's most diverse city, where she enjoys hunting for bling on Harwin Drive and pretending the Menil Collection is her second home. She is a writer, lawyer, roller derby retiree, and co-owner of Trip Chandler, a team of two woman who give tours of Houston to visitors and locals. Houston's kolaches, icehouses, and shady live oaks convinced Joni Fincham to adopt the city as her hometown after living in Kansas, New Orleans, North Carolina, France, and Scotland. As co-owner of Trip Chandler, she helps visitors, new arrivals, and locals discover their own favorite pieces in Houston.
