New Jersey resident and teen entrepreneur, Misha “Mega Meesh” launched his STAY MEGA streetwear business last year and recently held his first in-store pop-up in Englewood, NJ. Misha has always been an enterprising young person - he started his first business selling fingerboards (mini-skateboards) to his friends at school, but after running afoul of the “no commerce” rules on campus, he decided to expand his horizons into a streetwear brand for the general public. An avid BMX biker, triathlete, and musician, Misha combined the aesthetics of sports and streetwear to create his brand “Stay Mega” clothing. He got the idea when he found the popular luxury streetwear brands he liked were out of his price range. “I decided to create my own brand with designs I like at a price my friends and I can afford,” explains Misha.
When not in school or working on his business, Misha trains for and competes in triathlons on the BCM Tri team and plays conga drums for the Bowery Jazz Messengers, a NYC based non-profit group that performs for the clients of NYC's Bowery Mission Shelter.
