Alvin Parker Wells II
Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Monster Pixel
After growing up in Louisiana, Alvin Parker Wells II attended Louisiana Tech University on a full music scholarship after having been offered full ride scholarships from several colleges and universities across the United States. He then started a sales career with MCI where he rapidly became one of the top salespeople in the company, winning the President’s Club and outperforming quota by 200% each period. MCI promoted him to sales supervisor, making him one of the youngest managers in the company’s history. Al then moved to the Denver, Colorado area and began a career in business-to-business sales selling copy machines. Upon achieving record sales for the company he worked for, nearly ten times quota, and for securing a contract with one of the largest law firms in Denver that soon thereafter had an attorney appointed to the US Justice Department by President Bill Clinton, Al secured a front page write up for the fledgling company he worked for in the Denver Business Journal Strategies section. That resulted in the company offering him an ownership position in the firm. However, he went on to start his first technology company, Trensic Corporation, with his brother, Steve Wells. Selling information technology services such as Citrix, Microsoft solutions, electronic document management and workflow systems, installing networks, and providing custom software development solutions, the company grew from bootstrap to millions of dollars in annual revenues within a few years, securing major accounts with international and multi-billion dollar companies such as Great West Life and Annuity. Al then founded a company, Revity, that helped streamline business to business payments and invoicing processes. He then served as VP of Sales for Gravity Investments, a portfolio analytics software company that helped retail investment advisors and intuitions balance investment portfolios to be as diversified as possible as measured, graphically, by the correlation among all the instruments in the portfolio. Al then worked as Director of Sales for PayByPartner which was a monetization solution that helped Facebook publishers and independent game and website publishers to monetize through alternative payment solutions. He went on to provide similar services as CEO of his own company founded with multiple partners under the AVN brand. Having learned to write software through reading books, Al entered a Roku software development contest and won top prize for creating a Roku channel that allowed users to watch Facebook video on television prior to other methods that would soon be development by Google and Apple. He then launched Monster Pixel with a facial recognition game he wrote for Android and iOS devices that used a Java server he wrote that tracked players using a great circle calculator and used facial recognition services from Face.com to verify player image capture of each other before Face.com was purchased by Facebook and removed from the market. Monster Pixel continued to grow, adding clients such as CBS Films for whom the company made a game to market the release of the film, ‘The Seven Psychopaths’. The company went on to create sports analytics solutions that powered over $70 Million in annual golf lessons around the world and the company built the Piano Marvel music education platform which today is the world’s most advanced piano education platform teaching adults and children to play piano all over the world. Monster Pixel has headquarters in the United States and development offices in Vietnam with clients in Singapore, the Philippines, Myanmar, Hong Kong, the United States and continuing to expand their software solutions services offerings around the world.
