Micah is not only a great on-camera talent, he is an amazing person to work with! He is always fun while being professional and supportive of the whole team. I canโ€™t wait to work with him some more!
— Lauren Leeds, Executive Producer
Micah is a pleasure to work with. His positive spirit and high energy makes him one of the easiest bloggers to work with. His content is always fresh and fun, and he keeps his finger to the pulse.
— Bryce Gruber, CEO, TheLuxurySpot.com
Micah displays a rare combination of determined will to succeed with a genuine and caring spirit toward others. On top of this Micah is a pro at his craft. I have seen him work a room and he collects long-term friends with each step. In an industry where people often step on others to move up, Micah channels his Southern manners and never forgets when someone has helped him, no matter how small the favor. He is talented, funny, smart and charming. He is a fabulous and inviting presence from the blogosphere to the red carpet.
— Kathleen Williams, Principal, PopLab Marketing
Micah exhibits an unbridled enthusiasm, personality, drive, and passion for entertainment. He has proven to be an asset to every brand that has been privileged enough to work with him.
— Leya Edelstein, Digital Media Manager, Hermes

Organizations I Care About


Here's a sampling of the projects I have worked on over the years.

maven by general motors, INFLUENCER MARKETING

When Maven, the seamless peer-to-peer car sharing app from General Motors, launched in New York, they engaged me to raise awareness through my social media channels and my lifestyle and tech-focused media friendlies. Since 2017, we have hosted media and influencer drives including: a weekend away in The Berkshires, a private viewing of โ€œThe Heavenly Bodies Exhibitโ€ at The Met Cloisters, a private lunch and tour at Blue Hill Stone Barns, a day of relaxation at Buttermilk Falls Inn & Spa in the Hudson Valley, and an epic food tour of Williamsburg, Brooklyn. We engaged influencers including radio and television host Taylor Strecker, food critic Jake Cohen, Josh Beckerman (The Foodie Magician), fashion blogger Thania Peck (Catcher in the Style), model Elliott Sailors and comedian Michelle Collins.

BETSEY JOHNSON, NATIONAL host/emcee

Since 2012, iconic womenswear designer Betsey Johnson has called on Micah to emcee her nationwide in-store appearances. Together they are absolutely unstoppable and have visited almost every major city across the United States, from Los Angeles to Louisville. Department stores we have worked with include Macy's, Lord & Taylor, Nordstrom, Belk, Dillard's and Von Maur.
