Be Fearless Summit Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/befearlesssummit/

About Alexa

Born and raised in small-town Mansfield, Connecticut, Alexa Curtis knew she was different. She didn’t fit into the “normal social mold.” When she entered middle school, all the bullying she endured led her to need an outlet to escape. In 2011, at just 12 years old, she started a fashion blog; A Life in the Fashion Lane. It became a platform for her to express her feelings around everything relating to teens, body image, and mental health.

As Curtis evolved as a person, her blog naturally shifted from fashion to discussing sensitive topics that teens and young adults face every day.  A Life in the Fashion Lane was changed to Life Unfiltered with Alexa Curtis and became a lifestyle website and podcast for teens & parents discussing topics such as social media and mental health. Not only did Curtis turn her little fashion blog into a full-time lifestyle platform for teens, through cold-pitching, but she also managed to get sponsored by brands like British Airways, T-Mobile, Lands’ End, and more.

In 2018, Alexa founded the Be Fearless Summit, which is a pop-up summit that appeared at Drexel University on March 15th, 2020. The next summit was slated for April 1, 2020, at UC Berkeley. Sponsors include Headspace, Shake Shack, and Morphe. 

Curtis has spoken at numerous colleges; Northeastern, UConn, Eastern Connecticut, Rutgers along with high schools – discussing how to be fearless as well as mental health and social media. In October 2018, Curtis spoke alongside Amal Clooney and Serena Williams at Penn Women and in Sept 2018, Curtis added ‘host’ to her arsenal as she launched her own radio show on Radio Disney called “Fearless Every Day” with Alexa Curtis. “Fearless Every Day” was the first of its kind and broke new ground for the Radio Disney brand. Alexa interviewed various guests who shared their journey of overcoming obstacles/challenges and chasing after their dreams. 

When Curtis is not hard at work, she meditates frequently and makes time for hobbies like cooking and exercising to keep herself grounded. Although she is based in Los Angeles, she spends part of her time on the east coast.

In addition to being one of The Cousins on HGTV, John Colaneri stands out as a dynamic business maven in his own right. You’ve already seen the New Jersey native beef up and bolster homes across the U.S. with his cousin and best bud Anthony Carrino on their multiple hit shows on HGTV. Now their latest endeavors are with the Ellen DeGeneres Digital team in launching original shows. John’s journey has seen him build an extraordinary professional acumen along the way.

Graduating from Penn State in 2003, he immediately entered the corporate world at Fortune 500 company Fisher Scientific. Within a year, he joined international entity Faital S.P.A. as the United States Operation Manager. From spearheading organization to accounting, he proved instrumental to this OEM speaker manufacturer. John worked for his family construction business starting in 2007 as a senior project manager managing projects that would range from $2 million-$7 million.

HGTV came calling in 2011 and offered The Cousins their first show. Over the course of Kitchen Cousins, Cousins On Call, and Cousins Undercover, this powerful and precise pair saved countless homes with John remaining instrumental to the vision. They moved into the online realm with the funny and fiery cooking show Chill & Grill and a guide to being a guy—MANuscript. In 2015 the duo debuted their much-anticipated show, America’s Most Desperate Kitchens. Along the way, they became regular special guests on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and The Rachael Ray Show. This led to their first original project with the Ellen Digital team, Grand Design where they surprised viewers by re-creating a room for 1,000 dollars! With the success of their first show the Ellen digital team came calling again and this time it was for an even larger show called The Build Up! The first season debut was in Jan 2019 and the show was a success from the start and has currently over 35 million views across the Ellen digital platforms to become one of their most successful shows of 2019!

In 2019 John launched is own development company Lilyshea Development LLC that will focus on high-end residential design and custom spec homes that he is developing and designing in the New Jersey area.

The Cousins launched their first children’s book What Can You Do With A Toolbox in September 2018 and from the start it was a #1 seller for Amazon! The book is published by Simon and Schuster and illustrated by Maple Lam. The Cousins are depicted as themselves in the book and hope this will be the first of the series to follow.

Beyond these endeavors, John is a highly devoted family man. He and his wife Jennifer have two daughters and live in North Jersey. A lifelong fitness enthusiast, he also hosts his own exercise and wellness channel on YouTube, Colaneri Extreme Fitness.
