Entrepreneur . Educator . Public Speaker
I'm best known for being the Founder and CEO of Pulp Riot, a professional hair color line that is sold in 33 countries. The company took off like a rocket ship and in May 2018, L'Oreal acquired Pulp Riot. I continued to serve as the CEO for 3 more years, until I left in June 2021.
I just created a new brand called Danger Jones. I'll have more to write about it soon.
I'm often invited to give keynote presentations at events. My lectures typically aim to teach and inspire leaders using broadly applicable lessons I've learned on my journey to success, including lessons related to branding, social media, disruption, risk taking, entrepreneurship, and the digital revolution. My presentations can be tailor made to any industry.
Sometimes, I enjoy consulting other entrepreneurs and I occasionally invest in talented entrepreneurs with interesting business ideas. And, from time-to-time I enjoy the opportunity to be a guest on a podcast. If you would like to have me speak at your event, be a guest on your podcast, or have an interesting business idea you want to collaborate on, send me a message.
I received an Economics degree from UCLA. I live in Los Angeles with my wife and business partner Alexis Thurston, and my two daughters, Bowie and Finley.
