Nelson Wells is a music industry publicist. In addition he is an inventor, a CEO and business founder, an advisor, and a people & idea connector. He's also a devoted dad to identical twin girls.

"I was first a music Publicist, now the Founder & CEO of an International Music PR Firm. I am a believer in business, technology, design & the arts and the people who advance those endeavors. I seek people who disrupt common thought processes & startups who solve real world problems or seek to change entire industries."

About Nelson: In the late 90's Nelson founded the boutique music industry Public Relations Firm, Team Clermont where he remains CEO. Since selling shares in the firm Wells focuses on advising, investing in, and mentoring technology startups, as well as being an inventor himself.

Previous to founding Team Clermont, Nelson honed his entrepreneurial & PR skills and took his first music PR company from an initial investment of $800 from a band whose name includes 'Blowfish' to a half million in revenues in 30 months. That PR Firm is now Team Clermont.

Nelson attended the University of Georgia where he pursued a degree in marketing and international business. He was also a member of the varsity diving team; since college, he's moved his athletic pursuits out of the pool and to both the road & the water currently training for one more triathlon, & one more half marathon.

"In addition to my passion for races and surfing, I pursue my passion for technology and business through advising and mentoring young tech start-up companies by way of the newest technology incubator, Four Athens. I express my creative side and #entrepreneurial spirit by #designing and #prototyping my own #inventions." (instagram)

A proud single dad Nelson says, "I am also co-founder of the world's most amazing identical twins."
