Michael Medrano is an angler and author who recently published a book on the Stilt Houses of Texas. Together with the photographer, Tim Romano, they traveled the entire Intracoastal waterway in Texas by boat, knocking on the doors of the homes found along that path—over 400 doors to be exact.

Nowhere else in the country does a community exist where homes are constructed on stilts and placed in the water. Stilt Houses of Texas takes you on a photographic adventure to explore the State-run program in the breathtaking bays along the Texas coast.

Tom and Michael were first acquainted on the remote flats of Christmas Island as they were both taking their boys of similar ages on a graduation trip. They fished together the entire week and became fast friends.
