WHO WE ARE
INSPIRE is an art and entertainment company based in FXBG Virginia.
Created in 2021 during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, Inspire strives to effect change in our local community using the power & strategic influence of art, fashion, music, and digital media.
We want to help empower individuals within our community to live more meaningful, happier, and sustainable lifestyles!
HERITAGE & LEGACY
Inspire is based in Virginia which is part of the ‘DMV’, or the DC / Maryland/ Virginia region.
The DMV is rich in Native history, just like most of America.
Everywhere you look in the DMV you will see the legacy of native indigenous culture in the names of local places, rivers, and towns.
Honoring this legacy and embracing it as part of our modern identity, Inspire strives to remind people about where we are at and where we came from!
ABOUT THE CREATOR
Zach is 30 years old and lives in Fredericksburg Virginia.
He has former experience working with fashion as a former team member of HOODIE GOODIES. He also has worked in professional roles with companies such as WASHINGTON DIGITAL MEDIA, SMOKING GEEKS, iSMOKESHOP, and others.
Zach also has a previous background in conservation and forestry and was a former AmeriCorps backcountry trail crew member serving in various positions and programs aiding in work with National Parks, National Forests, State Parks, and more! 💪
Zach left HOODIE GOODIES due to differences of opinion on the artistic vision of the brand.
"I CREATED INSPIRE TO HAVE A VEHICLE FOR PURSUING MY INTEREST IN CULTIVATING CULTURE THROUGH FASHION, MUSIC, FOOD, AND RECREATION. I LIKE BEING A TOUR GUIDE FOR PEOPLE, ESPECIALLY WHEN THEY ARE VISITING MY CITY FOR THE FIRST TIME. I WANTED TO CREATE CONTENT THAT ALLOWS PEOPLE TO EXPLORE, HAVE FUN, AND CREATE MEMORABLE EXPERIENCES IN AREAS THAT I FELT WERE IMPORTANT AND SPECIAL."
HOODIE GOODIES is another DMV based fashion, lifestyle, and culture company created by Zach's former college fraternity upperclassman Steve Gonzalez.
Steve Gonzalez is a graduate of Norwich University and lives in Washington D.C where he works as the Chief Operations Officer for WASHINGTON DIGITAL MEDIA.
While working with Steve at HOODIE GOODIES / WASHINGTON DIGITAL MEDIA Zach learned invaluable skills related to fashion, cultivating culture through music production and supporting local small business and artists, among other unique experiences in the DC area.
"Ever since Zach has joined our team, we have been on a non-stop journey of growth.
With Zach's expertise and skills, we have been able to embrace new projects to grow our brand and reach audiences.
Zach is a creative and driven individual who brings results to the table. We are grateful for his help and would definitely recommend Zach to any business owner looking for help in growing their business to the next level."
