Co-founded with his business partner and mentor Quincy D. Jones III, the company is leading a movement to remix health and wellness content into empowering media, products and events -- promoting “health” as the ultimate status symbol. The company owns and operates multi-media platforms and manages a vast network of health influencers and role models, including celebrities, fitness trainers, single mothers and entrepreneurs. These influencers act as change agents in their communities to empower people to make better food choices and lead healthier lifestyles. In the Spring of 2014, Feel Rich will be releasing its first feature-length documentary about the state of health and wellness in the urban and Latino community.

Ullman serves on the board of the Consumer Health and Quality Coordinating Committee for the American Heart Association and was awarded the African American Capital City of Commerce’s “Black Entrepreneur of the Year” in 2013. In 2011, Shawn and Jones were invited to speak at the White House and The World Congress of Healthcare regarding health disparities in the urban community.

Shawn has been an avid vegan for over 4 years and is currently pursuing his yoga teaching certification in Vinyasa yoga. Shawn graduated with a B.A. in Radio-Television-Film from The University of Texas at Austin. Ullman resides in Austin, Texas.
