Meet Team Toto
Founder & CEO
Dean Elliott is the larger than life Founder & CEO of Mad Toto, and other ventures. Dean is what might be considered a serial entrepreneur, having been a part of what seems to be every industry imaginable since earning his liberal arts degree from NYU. Starting in the late 90′s, Dean was coordinating location logistics, including security, medic & transportation, for the booming reality TV industry. He worked on just about every reality show you can name, on location all over the world. At the same time, Dean was building a reputation as a successful voiceover artist, voicing spots for many of the coolest brands, including Volvo & the WWF. Everything Dean does, he does wholeheartedly, and with a passion for excellence… not to mention, his birthday happens to be 4-20.
