Who I Am  

A Little About Me

I help brands understand and reach Gen Z, with our Gen Z Ad Agency, Trndsttrs. As the founder & CEO of Trndsttrs, I guide our 24 person team of 20-somethings across campaigns with brands like McDonald's, UnitedHealthCare, The North Face, Denny's, and more... I host the Trndsttrs Podcast featuring CMO guests from the likes of Coca Cola, IBM, Facebook, Amazon,... and 50 more episodes with marketing executives from your favorite brands. My purpose in founding Trndsttrs is to align brands with the desires of a generation that demands more from today's corporations - in doing so, we move corporations to do better for the world and profit for doing so. My confidence is loud, and only derived from the only real ability I have: surrounding myself with incredibly talented people.

Interesting Factoid

I spoke to the same entrepreneurship accelerator that denied me 3 years prior.
