Entrepreneur + Founder of TEZZA
Tezza has been a fine art and commercial photographer for over 10 years and has expanded into creative direction and production for brands such as TRESemmé, BHLDN, Anthropologie, Retrofê, and Tommy Hilfiger. Tezza has also blended her musical talents and fashion knowledge to launch a lifestyle and fashion brand under her name. With a focus on “the Art of Life”, Tezza’s goal is to provide creative tools for others with products such as the Tezza Collage Kit, a decorative collection of high-quality art prints that have sold thousands, as well as her fully stocked photo and video editing app - Tezza App, which has over 10 million downloads and 3 million monthly active users. The app is frequently in the top 10 photo/video apps in the world. In the summer of 2020, she launched her much anticipated second sunglass collection featuring three retro-inspired styles in multiple colorways.
Tezza has become known for her bold use of color in her personal style and photography, leading brands to flock to her to tell a beautifully daring and vibrant story. Her aesthetic has garnered admiration from some of the world’s most coveted brands, resulting in numerous collaborations including Revlon, Mango, Marc Jacobs, Free People, Fujifilm, and Isabel Marant. In March of 2020, she launched a co-branded collaboration with Aldo Shoes that sold out in the United States within a week. She was put on the 2021 Forbes 30 under 30 list.
