Hey! I’m Maxwell Riesberg, a seasoned entrepreneur & producer living in the greatest city in the world – Los Angeles. I enjoy creating loud things. I’m currently building VYBO, the secondary concert ticket market built on the blockchain. We believe that ticket resale is fundamentally broken, fans shouldn’t pay a commission to the platform they transact on, and the power of the web3 provides a new foundation on which to build the future of concert ticketing & fan communities. Previously, I Co-Founded PARADISE CREATIVE, leading it from a two-person upstart in a garage to an industry powerhouse. Paradise creates iconic campaigns for clients including Disney, Paramount, Amazon Studios, HBO, Hulu, Sony, Roadside Attractions, et al, collecting numerous awards in the process (Clio, Golden Trailer Award, Promax). Before that, I Co-Founded LORD DANGER, a commercial production company. I had the privilege of producing for a boutique roster of brilliant Directors, creating music videos for some of biggest acts in music (Major Lazer, J. Cole, Steve Aoki, Big Sean, et al) as well as iconic commercials for brands including 1-800-Contacts & Meow Mix. I also created 8UBBLES, a CG avatar dance music producer & DJ. My team & I set out to create the “Ren & Stimpy of Dance”, bringing unbridled absurdity and world-building / narrativization to an electronic artist. We produced a handful of great records, rocked a iconic live performances, and created some really insane art. Fun Fact: behind the cartoon, I was 8ubbles, doing the ludicrous voice acting & wild motion capture performances & DJ sets myself. Honored with representing the United States at the CANNES LIONS in the Young Lions Competition, I served my country valiantly by producing zany commercial content. In a previous life, I started my career at Endeavor (later WME). Hollywood! Prior to any of this, I grew up in Chicago and studied Finance at the Kelley School of Business at Indiana University.
