Erica Vain

CEO/ Editor-in-Chief

Born and raised in Baltimore, built in Detroit and educated in New Orleans, Erica Vain has always been a girl on the go.

From the age three she started to fly solo in order to spend summers with her dad in Detroit, MI. In first grade she started playing basketball and activated her innate competitive edge. In high school she went on to play Volleyball, Tennis, compete in Track & Field in addition to her first athletic love Basketball. All of her athletic and scholastic hard work paid off as she was rewarded a full athletic scholarship (playing both basketball and volleyball) at division one school Xavier University. Post graduation she matriculated into Morgan State University’s graduate school studying immunohistochemistry and earning a Master’s of Science in Biology.

The year of her graduate school graduation Erica Vain decided that she wanted to do more and needed a life outside of the lab. She (for as long as she could remember) was always interested in celebrity entertainment, music and fashion but was never sure of how to blend her love of entertainment with her love of science. Then the idea for EricaVain.com came to her. EricaVain.com was the first step that led to the expansion that now is VAIN LLC. Shortly after starting EricaVain.com (after seeing almost immediate success and notoriety) she decided to learn and build the business behind the blog and the rest is VAIN history. Today ERICA VAIN has parlayed her popularity into other VAIN brand such as VainLife.com, ChicVain.com, FitVain.com and more. Always busy and seeking a evolution she is currently further expanding the VAIN Brand with the focus on “Helping People Curate Their Life to Be What They WANT! What they truly WANT!”

Terrell

Creative Director (EricaVain.com)

“Terrell Anderson is one of the most creative and talented young men I have EVER met” – EricaVain

Terrell and Erica Vain met via the web in 2009 at the very beginning of their blogging careers. They initially gravitated to each other due to impressive content and similar names (at the time Terrell went by Terrell Vanity). Early on Erica recognized Terrell’s immense raw talent and potential and the rest is creative collaboration history. Terrell is the designer behind the critically acclaimed (current theme) look of EricaVain.com entitled EricaVain 2.0. The redesign was a follow up to his initial completely custom design of EricaVain in 2012. With a purely creative mind, passionate heart and free spirit Terrell spearheaded the 2013 BET Takeover of EricaVain.com; allowed for the curation of up to the minute BET Awards 2013 coverage.

In addition to his works with VAIN, Terrell has a ton of celebrity and entertainment works under his belt. He single-handedly transformed the experience of readers and fans for Kelly Rowland, Michelle Williams, Tiffany Evans and major bloggers alike! Not just a designer, Terrell has created numerous blogs (Terrell Vanity.com, Celebloid.com, TV-Cafe.com and more) and contributes to the amazing field of entertainment journalism.
