Biggest success of 2016: “2016 was such an amazing year for me! I am so grateful I was able to star in The Passion on Fox, Mr. Student Body President on Go90 and finish up the year in Foursome on YouTube Red. But the best part of my year was definitely marrying the love of my life, Jess [Bauer]!”

Goals for 2017: “In 2017 I’m really excited to continue creating content for all my channels but also continue working on more TV/Film projects – stay tuned for details on those. My resolution for the new year is to travel as much as I did in 2016 if not more! I love exploring new places.”

Favorite rising social media star right now: “I don’t really have a favorite rising social media star. I love watching all my friends create content their passionate about and seeing a positive reaction. It’s really cool to watch!”

Best advice for someone looking to succeed in the social media space: “My best advice would be to always stay true to yourself and be honest with your fans. I have a very open and honest relationship with my fans and I cannot thank them enough for all the support they’ve shown for me and all my projects.”

Favorite all-time social media platform: “Instagram would probably be my favorite platform if I had to choose one. I love that you are able to share amazing photos that you have captured but also can share video content that you create.”
