Initially, we started as a beach picnic company. Fast forward a year and a. half later, we have done events for over five hundred guest. We have worked with some of our favorite brands such as Miami Swim Week, Pretty Little Thing, Bravo TV, Ritz Carlton, Model Beach Volleyball, Southern Glazer’s, and more. Read more>>

All I knew was that I wanted to become an entrepreneur and work for myself. At first, I made many mistakes. I didn’t know how to build a business. It took me a while to figure it out.  Read more>>

My story mirrors that of many from Miami. Born and raised west of the city (Kendall – shoutout to ARod), I grew up loving where I was from and embracing the identity Miami helped mold. It was interesting going away for college at the University of Central Florida (UCF) and having people question where I was from because of how thick the accent I never knew existed was. Had to limit the “supers” and “bros” to a minimum. In college, I was always the person that had answers to questions like: Who are we talking to? What does it look like? How are people going to engage with it? What do we put on the t-shirt? It was clear that I had to switch to advertising. Read more>>
