Simply to complete the WHO, WHAT, WHERE, WHEN, WHY cycle, Tess’s big WHY is due to the fact that since she was a young girl growing up in Des Moines IA she has always had a big heart for helping those in need.

Volunteering from an early age for children and elders in need fueled her vision to do good in the world. The adversities that Tess has faced has been used as inspiration to keep her on track to keep her mission in life at the center of her inspiration.

Her theatrical, dance, and music education with a desire to work in the entertainment industry brought her to New York after graduating from Stephens College (Columbia MO) to pursue her career dreams.

Living in New York, San Francisco, and Los Angeles, Tess has been able to “define the why” through the delicate balance of entertainment, technology, and philanthropy.
