Corey is no stranger to hard work and what it means to go after your dreams. He had a successful career in the financial industry as a senior corporate trainer, however, with the downturn in the economy he had to switch gears. He turned being laid off from his position into an opportunity to create his own job and pursue one of his passions, fashion.
In June of 2007 Corey co-founded BlackOutEndeavors LLC with his business partner, John S. Myers. Their first project was a t-shirt line called Flirtatious-T, t-shirts which were seen on national television on Kendra Wilkinson and Whoopi Goldberg. As a compliment to the Flirtatious-T t-shirts, Corey developed “All About Dating,” a blog devoted to discussing dating and relationships. In February 2010, “All About Dating” was rated #5 by DatingSite.org on their Top 20 Relationship Advice Blogs. Corey leaded BlackOutEndeavors’ past projects that include Mu Gamma Mu, the FLRT Collection, and ULM NYC. He is currently working with Fresh from Earth, Kinkster Mag and in the early stages of developing an underwear line.
Born and raised in New York City, Corey is fascinated by pop culture. He loves living in the urban environment and regularly draws inspiration from all that urban living has to offer. He is a passionate businessman with a strong work ethic and creative flair. His determination and resilience are key elements in what makes his endeavors successful.
