Early Life

Chris has been an entrepreneur since before he could talk. When growing up in Washington Heights, New York. Things were difficult for his teenage parents and immigrant household. He saw his dad and uncle open up a barbershop before he was walking and grew up in the hustlers environment that is a NYC barbershop. Everyday hustlers would come in to sell DVDs, gloves, glasses, iPods and so much more.


Through the years he would watch his uncle negotiate these people to a quarter of their asking price and watch as his father grew from one barbershop to multiple truck routes and real estate investing. Taking Chris and his family out of the rough inner city streets to one of the wealthiest zip codes in the world. That was when he realized he would follow his dad and uncle in entrepreneurship.


In high school Chris was captain of the wrestling team, a varsity baseball player, high school musical actor, and part of the Future Business leaders of America. As he graduated from high school he started his first business with his cousin who wanted to make music. After graduating his god brother and close friend passed away due to depression and suicide which left Chris wondering what was next for him.

Shaking the media production industry to its core allowing everyone to get wholesale pricing for top quality media production work. Using our gym style membership program. Similar to a major gym membership you pay monthly for access to the machines and facility and depending on your efforts, determine your results. 


We applied this business model to the creative world and made the worlds first creative gym for the mind. Allowing members to get 2 hours per month for $100 to create high quality content about their business, goals or dreams to help them move forward. 



Business Career

In 2012 Kenny V his partner and cousin wanted to make music but at the time Kenny had little business experience, and was just a quiet heavy set kid with a Dream. Chris saw this as an opportunity to support Kenny the way he could not support his god brother. He saw the skills Kenny had with written words and flow and pushed him to continue and think deeper on his business as an artist. So Chris came up with a business strategy to differentiate them from the market. 


On December 2012 they released their first branded products and the (DayDream Bundle) was born. Which included Kenny V's Debut album titled "DayDream", a "DayDream Jersey" Tank Top and a sticker of the logo all for only $15. They launched the bundle and used social media to share photos of friends who supported the Dreamers movement. Soon they sold over 150 bundles in their first month in the music business. 


In 2013 they started to do shows and host their own events showcasing local artist and selling out venues in their local towns. This lead them to learn more about media production and boot strap their merchandising business. They began to learn fashion manufacturing in their parents basement.  

Kenny focused his energy on media production skills such as audio engineering to record his music, graphic design to make logos and

t-shirt designs and video directing and editing. while Chris studied websites, marketing, advertising, sales and handled putting together the LLC and funding opportunities.

Their need to market and promote their own products lead them to learn skills that not only did they need, but all businesses no matter the size need. The ability to market and promote themselves at the same level as the top brands in the world is crucial to small business today.


Chris has sold everything from merchandise bundles and production services, to used cars, gym memberships, and real estate. His experience in marketing and communications comes from years of trial and error as an entrepreneur, hundreds of thousands of dollars spent testing methods and tactics to finally have enough hours put in to see results. He also has corporate marketing training from a fortune 500 company as well as institutional training as a UCONN Communications Alumni.

The limitations and frustrations Kenny and Chris encountered with the media production industry was disappointing to say the least.

"We would have problems getting records we paid for back and edited properly or videos half done. " - Kenny V


This lead to the birthplace of the idea, for the Dreamers to come together and create a safe NO JUDGEMENT ZONE creative hub where artist, directors, actors, writers, musicians, and entrepreneurs can come together and create freely. Now in 2020 they have officially launched their iDayDream Studios facility in Danbury CT where they are working on some incredible content for local businesses and independent brands. They have amazing projects in the pipe line including augmented reality, franchising their space, launching a partnered software and of course a lot more music and digital media content.
