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 “The Heavenly Bodies Exhibit” 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.

We are orlando - Pulse nightclub fundraiser
Not even a week after the horrific terrorist attack on Pulse Nightclub in Orlando, I gathered notable New Yorkers to raise money for the victims and families via Equality Florida LLC and with the generous support of fundraising platform, Crowdrise. Together, we raised over $25,000. Notable attendees at the event included The Blonds, Noah Neiman of Rumble Boxing, Vicky Jeudy of "Orange Is The New Black," journalist Alicia Quarles, DJ Hannah Rad of Revolt TV and many more. Sponsors of the fundraiser included World Yacht, Stella Artois, ABSOLUT Vodka, WTRMLN WTR, Balloon Kings New York, Popchips Ridges, and Baked By Melissa.
pintrill x micah jesse collaboration
In 2015, Micah embarked on his first foray into fashion design with a pin collaboration: PINTRILL x Micah Jesse. Together with the creative team at PINTRILL, they designed three pins: a passport (that reads "Yaaassport"), a peach (an homage to Micah's home state), and a Love Wins pin that benefited Equality Florida's Pulse Orlando fund.
