In 2014, I combined my love of travel and passion for helping small businesses grow by founding a travel guide, Taste The Wild Air. TTWA is a travel guide to the United States with a "Keep It Local" promise. The promise ensures that no chain businesses are featured only small and local businesses. With a combined social media following of over 500,000 individuals, the company became the most followed personal travel guide before the website even went live. I learned marketing and branding at a young age. I began print modeling at sixteen. I then made a career of freelance and agency modeling. I also managed promotional models for several agencies. I starred on a number-one rated MTV show and in multiple music videos. I worked to promote several nonprofits and went on the road with Music Saves Lives for Warped Tour in 2013. I encouraged LGBT youth to embrace who they are and accept one another without titles through my work with MTV Acts. Throughout my career in entertainment, I worked behind the scenes promoting small businesses and helping them to develop marketing strategies. I am most proud of connecting a tattoo studio in Northern Michigan with a local health professional to teach artists the warning signs of skin cancer. The studio now screens on average 700 clients a year for skin cancer.
