STORY & BACKGROUND

Understanding that we live in an increasingly dangerous world, Andi Atteberry’s father came home with pepper spray for her and her mother — as any concerned and protective father and husband would. The problem? These clunky, masculine-looking keychain pepper sprays often got stashed in a junk drawer or glove box to be forgotten, rather than relied upon in the event of an emergency.

FOUNDER BIOS

Andi Atteberry

Founder & Spokesperson

Always eager for a challenge, Andi Atteberry jumped at the chance to turn a novel idea into a multi-million dollar company. Her unique blend of work experience in tv journalism and corporate sales built a solid foundation to cultivate and execute a consumer brand from the ground up. She oversees product design and development as well as the overall brand direction and voice for Blingsting. In a nutshell, her job is to just ‘make things cute’, with a functional sting. Andi serves as company spokesperson for TV and print, and has presented the brand on broadcasts including Home Shopping Network, NRA TV, and Dallas local news. Andi can be reached at andi@blingsting.com.

Gabe Mazzone

Co-Founder & CEO

Collegiate rugby player-turned "the hardest working man in sparkly pepper spray", Gabe Mazzone has been the backbone of the company since day one. Recognizing the need for the products Andi had concepted, he got to work making the samples with zero manufacturing or sourcing experience. He relied on his sales background to knock on doors to secure their initial customers. He continues to run all aspects of the day-to-day, including operations, sourcing, production, sales & team management. Email Gabe at
