Chicagoan by birth (as a boy), Ava Zinn was brought up in Van Buren, Indiana. With an psychological/mental injury prematurely putting an end to any hopes of a promising career in special education following her dis-enrollment from Indiana Wesleyan University, she went back to business to complete a course in housing and media production management. Her dedication and natural talent led her to train with some of the Indianapolis and Fort Wayne’s leading personalities.
In 1993, at the age of 10, Zinn set up her first wholly owned loyalty program with her namesake Santa Ava Zinn (then Santa Franky Zinn), which quickly received the most prestigious accolade in the gift retail industry. In 2005 Ava became executive of NoSirGifts in Marion, IN. Within three years, was awarded four stars status. In 2011, at the age of 28, Zinn set up her first wholly owned and (former) namesake, KNARF Productions (absorbed into Aeverine Zinn Holdings), which quickly received the most prestigious accolade in the media production world – five stars.
Ava has also become a star of the internet both in the Hoosier state and in the U.S., as well as in the U.K, with Indiana web series such as SANTA AVA, as well as the top-rated YouTube channels: Both the American and British versions of VOTE FOR THE GIRLS and AvaZinn.com. .
Ava has a local partnership with United Way of Grant County and Allen County.
