Chris “Drama” Pfaff in an entrepreneur and brand operator who has been “causing drama” since his days in Akron, Ohio, growing up passionately in love with skateboarding. And while his talent didn’t let him go pro, he knew he wanted to be involved in the industry in whatever way possible.
After turning eighteen, he planned to move to Los Angeles (the skateboarding capital of the world), but that was delayed after he survived a catastrophic accident that left him in a coma for four days. Finally, he was able to move to LA to become the assistant to his cousin, pro skater and reality TV star Rob Dyrdek.
In 2009, Chris turned his experiences and opportunity as a reality TV star to create and market his clothing line, Young & Reckless: a stylish streetwear-inspired brand for young people that anyone can get at an affordable price. Young & Reckless is sold in more than 3,000 stores including PacSun, Macy’s, and its own online store.
On this episode we talk about his journey from skateboading to reality TV to entrepreneurship. Check this out.
Continually creating content and executing innovative ideas, in 2016, Chris began creating new platforms for himself and his brand with his podcast, Short Story Long.
