At age 16, I founded PrepReps, a marketing company that connects high school and college influencers with clothing apparel and tech brands. A week after my 17th birthday, I was featured in AdAge in an article titled “Meet the 17-Year-Old Running a profitable agency out of his dorm room.” I was named one of the “Top 5 High School Entrepreneurs to Watch in 2016”, and have given keynotes at marketing conferences for CPG and product companies. When I’m not on the grind or at school, I’m spending time with my friends and family, my dog, Jagger, wake-boarding, skiing, and playing tennis.
