Theresa Hull, or, as she's known on Vocal, Reese Marie, is a driven writer, entrepreneur, and appreciator of literature from Illinois. As a long time Vocal+ Creator, her growth in terms of cultivating an online presence and her abilities in writing and storytelling is evident—it's been a pleasure witnessing her develop!
Creator Spotlight: Sophia Carey
Sophia Carey is a rising star in the world of photography and graphic design. Something unique about this UK-based visual arts maven is her eye for what makes a person themselves and her ability to suspend that persona in a still image. From personal projects to event photography, portrait photography, commercial photography, videography, and design, there's virtually nothing in the realm of visual arts that's out of her wheelhouse.
Creator Spotlight: Hannah Barrett
Hannah Barrett is a charismatic, hilarious, and gifted writer from Alberta, Canada. Far greater than her skill in syntax and storytelling is her inviting worldview—or the x-factor we hypothesize leads others to fall in love with her. Through years of honing her craft, Hannah's developed a voice that makes you feel like you've known her for years. Between her personal touch and lighthearted candor, time flies when we're reading her work! To our relief, she's got plenty of material.
Creator Spotlight: Zach Doehler
Vocal Creators! Get ready for something special, because this #VocalSpotlight features the talents of landscape and nature photographer, Zach Doehler. In all honesty, we could probably just leave it at that and let his photos speak for themselves, but there's something really special about Zach's presence on Vocal that goes beyond his talents in photography.
Creator Spotlight: Malin Evita
Malin Evita, or simply, Evita, has lived an incredibly interesting 18 years. From being raised on a Christian commune in Denmark to becoming an activist for human rights, there's really no one deciding Evita's life path other than herself. Through a balance of confronting issues head-on and understanding how to avoid the "echo-chamber" that polarizing ideals seem to drown in, Evita found a voice of her own that readers can easily subscribe to.
Creator Spotlight: Christian Johnson
Christian Johnson is an incredibly talented photographer and cinematographer based out of Brooklyn, NY. His work embodies such raw emotion and detail that any given spectator might view the same picture in 2 different ways, depending on the day and how they feel. In that mysterious phenomenon lies the true art in his creations: the power he grants to the viewer. You might ask, "how can a still image be subjective?," and to that, we don't pretend to know or understand. All we know is that Christian's photos are very satisfying to look at, and that they seem to evolve over time.
Creator Spotlight: Arlee Maxwell
Arlee Maxwell has been a writer for as long as she can remember, but has only recently found her true voice. That newfound voice is one of honesty--no matter how brutal the truth is, ambition--no matter how high the obstacles in front of her may seem, and fearlessness--both in the endeavors she explores and the life she creates.
Creator Spotlight: Kat King
Hmm... How exactly can we describe Kat King? Well, she's a fantastic writer for starters; but, beyond that, Kat is thoughtful, open-minded and driven to make a difference. Whether that be through her unique style of storytelling, her years of service in the United States Military, or her humanitarian outlook on the world, we just consider ourselves lucky that Kat found a safe place to explore and document her work on Vocal.
Creator Spotlight: Dr. Megan Babb
Dr. Babb is about as selfless as they come. As a mother of 4, devoted wife, active community member, and primary care physician, we often wonder how she has enough time to churn out such thoughtful, deep content. Whatever her secret is, we sure hope she keeps it coming. Megan's dedication as a primary care physician transfers beautifully to text. She invites her readers under her wing as she confronts the hard-hitting injustices found in America's health care system. She's earnest, fact-driven, and personable—it's almost as if you can hear her voice as you read her stories.
Creator Spotlight: Nathalia Ramos

Her stories reflect her vibrant personality and charisma, which have made us big fans of her stories over the past few months. Nathalia is one our most passionate creators so we wanted to learn more about what inspires and shapes who she is. Here's her #VocalSpotlight.

Daisy has been a creator on Vocal for quite some time now and every time, her stories have inspired us to be more adventurous and brave in unexpected ways.

We wanted to learn some more about what inspires her travels and mindset so we got to chat with her and ask her some questions. Read below for her Creator Spotlight.
