  • The Social Lights


Your fav #MN brands, small businesses & entrepreneurs who get social the right way.

Social Media. You’re on it. Your feed is fire. But as a brand, understanding how to use social media as a advertising tool is far different than posting another face-swap of you & your cat.

We’ll sit down for a personal AMA with some of the most creative and social media-savvy small businesses and entrepreneurs in the Twin Cities inside The Social Lights new HQ. Then we’ll mix & mingle, shop & schmooze your favorite local purveyors. You’ll like it IRL. Bring your #squad.

  • Minneapolis Institute of Art

I am going WAY out of my comfort zone and modeling in the I AM MPLS show on November 17th at Mia! Check out my bio and more event info here.

A city isn’t just the land it inhabits. Or the water that flows through it. Or the buildings that tower over it.

It’s the people.

The dreamers. The doers. The historians. The iconoclasts. The scavengers. The creators. The tacticians. The generators.

It’s a vibrant gallery with hundreds of thousands of hearts and souls finding their own unique rhythms, gathering in groups of those that share the same beat.

Each year, we bring these collections together to celebrate the creative ties that bind us all in the creative hub of the north. For one night, we set a spark that creates new collaborations, new ideas, and new friendships.

The land, the water, and the buildings may bring us here, but it’s the people that truly allow us to say with pride and without hesitation – I AM MPLS!

Doors open at 6pm, Fashion Show starts at 7:15pm 


After party at Icehouse, get tickets here!
