I’m an entrepreneur, writer, and entertainment superfan. I co-founded ZinePak in 2011 to help brands and entertainers connect with their fans in more exciting and authentic ways. ZinePak has partnered with hundreds of celebrities—including Katy Perry, KISS, Luke Bryan, and Taylor Swift—to create original content for millions of fans across the planet. In 2015, inspired by my appearance on the TV show Shark Tank, I co-founded Per Diems Against Poverty, a 501(c)(3) that reallocates donated per diems from athletes, entertainers, and executives to Americans suffering from food insecurity. Prior to launching ZinePak, I spent almost four years as a Director of Marketing at Sony Music. Next, as an Account Supervisor at a DDB-owned activation agency, I negotiated seven-figure entertainment partnership deals for brands including LG, Johnson & Johnson, and A&E Television Networks. I love writing about music (especially country artists and songwriters), television, and pop culture. I’m proud to have been named to Advertising Age’s 40 Under 40 list, Inc.’s 35 Under 35 list, and Billboard’s 30 Under 30 list, among other entrepreneurship and marketing honors.
