Katherine Feser covers a variety of subjects for the Houston Chronicle Business section. She coordinates some of the paper’s most popular special sections, including the Chronicle 100, Home Price Survey, and Top Workplaces. She compiles many of the staples of the section, including the daily markets page, People in Business, event listings and real estate transactions.
In just about every look back at Chronicle photos from 30 years ago, you can expect to find photos from a concert somewhere. This time around, there seem to be an above-average number of photos.
