Javier Gonzalez
Founder & Creative Lead

Hey y’all! I go by Javi and I’m the founder of IGAustinTexas. I created the account in an effort to create community with local photographers and creatives in Austin, the place I've called home for over a decade now. In my free time I enjoy exploring Austin and checking out new spots with my partner. If you like cats I think we will get along.

Dahlia Dandashi
Marketing Lead

Hey guys, it's Dahlia: the girl who's here to make a sarcastic comment or drink all your cold brew. Though I'm a proud University of Texas alum, I grew up in Dubai and the Middle East. My family is Lebanese and Syrian, and a lot of my creative work has to do with travel, culture, food and the people I meet. I use my free time to write, read, eat and force my friends to be models for my obnoxiously colorful photoshoots.

Lover of music
Stand in Model
I've lived in Austin most my life and in the past few years I've gotten more into photography than ever. I enjoy walking around random neighborhoods, searching for new things to take photos of.
