About Lex McMahon
Born in San Francisco, California to a free spirited, but really cool hippie mother, it was far from destined that Lex would become a warrior. In fact, betting odds had it that Lex would end up living on a commune, bathing in petuli oil, and marrying a bare-foot woman named Moonbeam.
Desperate to avoid life as a fragrant and flabby longhaired hippie, Lex shaved his head and joined the Marines in January 1991. From the start, the DI’s questioned Lex’s manhood on more than one occasion – something to do with the earring holes in his left ear and a given name of Alexis. Despite the best efforts of the DI’s, Lex managed to earn the title Marine. Upon joining the Fleet Marine Force, Lex was deployed to the battleground streets of Mogadishu, Somalia from 1992 – 1994 where he was consistently amazed to see Somali’s run to a fire fight in shower shoes – who does that?
After leaving the Marines and not quite ready to get a traditional job, Lex migrated to the University of California at Santa Barbara (AKA U Can Study Buzzed), where he earned a B.A. in English – all he really did was read and drink beer at the beach. Still not ready to get a job and not wanting the party to end, Lex went to law school in San Diego where he earned a juris doctorate from California Western School of Law and gained an appreciation for fish tacos and margaritas. After several years in the work force, Lex returned to school and earned an MBA from Pepperdine University. Upon graduating from business school and realizing that it was time to grow up, Lex turned his attention to how best utilize his many degrees (other than as wall paper for his new house).
Despite his love of a good time and through a bit of luck and a lot of hard work, Lex has served as a senior executive of numerous ventures in diverse industries including: entertainment, consumer goods, technology, venture capital, and defense.
