Nash Grier & Friends
The 19-year-old from North Carolina digital influencer started his journey to worldwide notoriety by creating videos on the popular social media network Vine. From there, he has amassed a huge following on additional social media channels including YouTube, Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, and Snapchat.
After moving to LA he found himself educating even major brands on the benefits of digital/Internet marketing versus traditional TV commercials or print ads. Soon he was bombarded with endorsements and began doing content deals with companies including Tommy Hilfiger, Old Spice, Neutrogena, Mudd, Nordstrom, Virgin Mobile, MTV, M&Ms, Aquafina, and many more. He started a clothing brand aside from his fan merch called UnitedXXVI, which did millions in retail sales for Aeropostale.
Since Nash has become mainstream, he has been a guest on Good Morning America and The View multiple times and has been named one of TIME Magazine’s 30 Most Influential People on the Internet in 2014 & 2015. He was also named one of TIME Magazine’s most influential teens. Grier was then invited to the White House Correspondents Dinner by Arianna Huffington after being named and featured in HuffPost as the most popular kid in the world.
In spring of 2016 he wrapped filming on the thriller film You Get Me starring opposite Bella Thorne, then in fall of 2016 the provocative series The Deleted, which he stars, was released. Nash is drawn to the innovative story telling of video and film, as evidenced by the fact that he writes, directs, and edits every video he makes on social media.
What makes Nash different from any other young talent? – his drive to succeed, his knowledge of this unique space, and the closec relationship he has with his fans. Nash understands and appreciates that his fans helped create him, so his supporters see his journey as their journey. He is accessible to his fans and only promotes brands/companies he believes in, which builds trust with his fan base.
