Tied up high

Jaden Switalski was responsible for editing footage programmed by Jovan Slaughter after being captured by Jaiden Hogan. Switalski has specialized in skills such as video production, editing, storyboarding, graphic design, audio engineering, and Google and YouTube SEO (search engine optimization) since his start in content creation in 2013. .

Jonathan McKay, the founder of Keeping Tabs, began a partnership in February with Jaden Switalski, to develop digital assets and launch High Tied Productions into the Web 3 digital space. High Tied Production is owned and operated by Jaden Switalski. By studying the inner workings of social media marketing at its peak, he became aware of the gaps in the industry that needed to be filled. High Tied Production was founded to fill these gaps in content creation.

Keeping Tabs has since created the first High Tied augmented reality filter with technologies provided by the Meta Suite and Spark AR and has begun development of the first model for the High Tied Metaverse, “High Tied Island”. Switalski believes Web 3 and Blockchain technologies will impact the future of art and creation without taking away the raw beauty and spirit of traditional art forms.

Van der Plas

Jonathan McKay was contacted by Van Der Plas Gallery’s online curatorial service for the ‘Flight of the Butterfly’ exhibition, which organizes tours of the virtual gallery after the show. Van Der Plas is an integral part of the contemporary and underground art scene in New York.

Linnea Moritz is an artist specializing in cubism; an art style that specializes in capturing the essence and energy of an object, scene, or person, rather than focusing on physical representation as we see it. This summer, she was twice selected to exhibit at the Van Der Plas Gallery in the “Rays of Light” and “Flight of the Butterfly” art exhibitions on Manhattan’s Lower East Side in New York City.

Linnea Moritz also collaborated directly with model Jonathan McKay to create a multimedia artwork for the “Art Groove” exhibit at the Bowery Art Room. The artwork was created as a testament to highlight McKay’s significant role as an influence; his travels and partnerships through Flint Innovative Solutions have allowed him to positively impact his local community.


After a long history in global philanthropy and fundraising, Keeping Tabs and Moritz seek to merge in presenting a new sports-based art collection in partnership with the influence of the female basketball player from Webster University, Jenna Gregory.

McKay also sends a special mention to Reece Mathews, Madisson Gordon, Jerin Sage and Luke Benson in their legacies.
