Meet: Camden Douthwright

Camden Douthwright

Another young entrepreneur I met at the IDEA Centre Moncton pop-up market in Riverview last night was Camden Douthwright. He’s a bit of a TikTok sensation (@camdenonhisroof – nearly 200,000 followers, 2.7 million likes and a number of of videos with 1 million + views each!) and Instagram (@camdendouthwright).

Camden sells unique custom-painted jeans! Really cool stuff! I’m seriously impressed with his TikTok channel. Camden also edited a book entitled Project Unimaginable about teens’ experiences during the pandemic.

Clothing designer, book editor, TikTok star… I think he’s well on his way!
