From his early New England beginnings to his explosive success in Los Angeles, Blake Ricciardi has strategically built a new-age empire from scratch. The Boston native has achieved great success as an entrepreneur, social influencer and market leader by unapologetically going against the grain.

Since then, he has directly impacted the success of multi-million-dollar companies by pushing the conventional boundaries of marketing, creative, design and business.Armed with diverse experiences with music artists, professional athletes and established and upcoming clothing brands, Blake was exceptionally well prepared for his move to Los Angeles years ago.
He launched Popular Demand with a mere four t-shirt designs, zero fanfare and no financial backing. The brand has since sold millions of dollars of product annually and has been worn by celebrities ranging from Diddy to Cardi B to Kevin Durant to DJ Khaled. In just under six years, Popular Demand has partnered on creative projects with companies ranging from Budweiser to XBOX to Def Jam Records and has been featured on HBO, Fox, ESPN, USA
Today, Viceland and MTV.A respected leader, Blake has been featured as a guest speaker and panelist at numerous marketing, social media and entrepreneurship-related events, as well as on TV and radio. Blake founded his newest company, Brand Wolves, as a means of establishing a unique and effective platform to build new businesses and brands for today's ever-changing world. With so many exciting potential opportunities ahead of him, Blake continues to push the boundaries of entrepreneurship and contemporary business.
