We started Innovation Spark 5 Years ago, with the idea of bringing the Maker Faire to Houston. Our first 2 events were at the Stafford Center, and as we outgrew the facility we moved into the George R Brown Center. The last 2 Maker Faires have grown and we are now officially a Feature Faire on our 5th Anniversary. Read more>>

Years ago, when I picked up a camera I wasn’t a “soccer mom with a camera” instead I was a father of two boys, that loved baseball and soccer, and the point-n-shoot cameras just wasn’t getting the photographs I wanted.
