BOARD OF DIRECTORS

Viviana Rosales Olen Co-Founder twitter / instagram Viviana Rosales Olen is from Las Vegas, NV but she’s lived a lot of places and seen a lot of things.

If she were a character on Game of Thrones she would be Varys so she could walk around in her robe and convince people to do things. She enjoys spending time with Matt, taking pictures of her mouth, and flipping her hair all around. She has REALLY pretty hair.
