Darius A. Monsef IV, known by his friends as Bubs, knows every person has an awesome creative talent and wants to help them find it and share it with the world.

He created COLOURlovers while playing with the idea that all of us see and experience color differently and he wanted to create a place for people to share those unique perspectives.

He’s also a co-founder of the disaster relief non-profit All Hands Volunteers and has spent more than one year living in disaster zones around the world.

His greatest achievement is getting his 2nd grade crush to eventually marry him.

Colin focuses on developing great partnerships for our community. His background came from a few years at MySpace where he learned exactly how to drown the user experience in ads – and has vowed to never subject fellow COLOURlovers to the same fate!

Colin lives in Los Angeles, walks pound puppies when he needs a break, has never finished watching Star Wars, and cooks a different recipe for dinner each night.
