Richard Fox, highly motivated creative developer with an international client portfolio.
I launched my first business at 14 years old - a comic book store - which expanded to three major locations. Since that first foray into the business world as a teenager, I have launched numerous successful businesses covering a range of different industries including health care, IT, retail, and many other service-related industries. I have enjoyed multiple highly successful exits, with many of the businesses I helped to create remaining operational and prosperous decades later.
My passions are innovation, creating new, marketable products and services, and growing startups or expanding already established businesses. I always aim to work towards finding ideas which can help to improve the fast-paced world we live in today. I also thoroughly enjoy learning new skills through reading books from other successful entrepreneurs and ideologists which assist me in continuously improving my abilities to successfully create, deploy and monetize various products and services.
I’m continuously looking for opportunities to expand my portfolio with new, exciting projects and ventures.
My work is my passion and I absolutely love what I do. I take immense pride in every project and when I take on a new venture, I fully immerse myself in it and go all the way.
I utilize the full potential of social media to build brands, generate sales, and establish brand credibility. My social media expertise covers a wide range of platforms including Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest, and Tumblr.
One of my most challenging but rewarding skills is development. I work closely with numerous startups and established businesses to assist them with reaching their full potential. I combine many of my other skills to create a clear path for development to businesses in a wide variety of industries.
My proficiency in a wide range of digital skills and techniques have led to my work as a consultant for many new and small- to medium-sized businesses. I assist business with overcoming hurdles and planning strategies for expansion and growth through both proven and inventive digital methods.
Learning more about myself every day is one of my greatest strengths.
From the age of 14, I knew I had the abilities to achieve anything.

Baghunter is one of the world’s leading ultra-luxury platforms for buying, selling, consigning, and swapping Chanel and Hermes handbags. Our growing reputation for authenticity, customer satisfaction, accessibility, integrity, and quality sets us apart from other similar platforms. We have also implemented unique features for clients including a Bag Bespoke service and Bag Concierge Service.
My passion for exploring and discovering new web-based technology and related ideas led to the establishment of Investio. Our aim is to help unique, innovative, and great ideas take off online including apps, websites, and other information technology related ventures. Our expertise at marketing and scalability has assisted numerous web projects in becoming more than just a great idea and in reaching the next level.
I branched out into real estate to utilize my marketing expertise in a new industry. The rentals, sales, and development focus primarily on iconic luxury properties that have “value-add” potential across the United States. Our latest project is based on the island of Maui in Hawaii and is currently listed for rent and sale.
My interest in the finance industry led to the establishment of EthosPay – a merchant matching service which assists high-risk businesses in matching with over a dozen merchant processing bank solutions. We assess the business type, risk level, chargebacks, and transaction history for each merchant we work with to find them the best possible merchant processing solution for their needs. Our individual analysis for each merchant, customer service level and acceptance of high-risk businesses has helped us acquire numerous notable clients.
We launched Talenthunter in 2007, an online social network dedicated to actors, models, and movie extras. Our innovation at the birth of popular social media led to the idea quickly taking off and within five years the social network had grown to more than eight million members.
The rise of eBay led to the idea for a competitor platform which came in the form of Bidfly. The platform worked in an auction-style similar to eBay but it was free to list your items unlike on eBay which has listing fees. But unfortunately, Bidfly didn’t catch on as planned and this failure taught me extremely important lessons which I would carry into future projects that became successful.
An early project which I am extremely proud of, ARF Development was a pioneer in the adult day health care (ADHC) industry. ADHC Centers provide healthcare, social, and activity services to low income elderly and disabled participants. Our service has been proven to reduce hospital visits and enhance the quality of life for our patients. The project became very successful and within a few years, we were operating eight centers across California. At our peak, we were servicing over one thousand participants per day. We also provided consulting services for dozens of other centers across California and beyond. Many of the ADHC Centers remain open today and still provide services a decade later to thousands of elderly and disabled participants on a daily basis.
I launched Comic King when I was 14 years old! Initially a hobby, I grew the comic store into a chain with three locations in major malls across the greater Los Angeles area. The success of this early business led to features on multiple local news channels including the front page of the Daily News and named “One of the youngest entrepreneurs in America”.
I am lucky to have worked on projects with some incredible people and great minds.
