Hi There Preston Hollow, I’m William James

Today is my first day on staff at People Newspapers, and I am pleased to introduce myself as the new Preston Hollow People reporter. Despite the weather taking a turn for the worst, it has been a great first day.

You will be seeing my stories appear in the upcoming issue of Preston Hollow People, but before they are published I want you to know who I am.

I consider myself somewhat of a Texas authority. I grew up in Houston, went to high school in San Antonio, college in Austin and now work in Dallas. I’m happy to report the city of big hair and bling is my favorite.

I recently graduated from the University of Texas with a government and journalism degree. At UT, I worked for The Daily Texan as the senior political reporter, senior fashion writer and associate news editor. Before starting with the Texan, I worked at KVRX and TSTV, UT’ s radio and television station. Once I started with the paper I learned that print was my passion, which is why I’m here today.

In town, you’ll find me volunteering at the Dallas Museum of Art, writing or sketching at a coffee shop on Knox/ Henderson, or grabbing a drink in my neighborhood, uptown. Of course, I will be loitering in Preston Hollow everyday, getting the scoop on everything the beautiful community has to offer.

For story ideas or suggestions, email me at William.gerlich@peoplenewspapers.com. I look forward to getting well acquainted with you, your family and community.
