Javier Laval, founder of FutureStream, is the ultimate creative director and entrepreneur. If you have attended one of his infamous JL Events in Hollywood entertaining top celebrities, athletes, and trendsetters then you will realize quickly that he is connected to the key influencers in music, fashion, sports, and entertainment. Truestar Media, his marketing company, has worked on major creative campaigns for companies such as Nike, Boost Mobile, Pony, Nooka, and many more. 

Javier’s background is in creative brand marketing. His migration into fashion was a move that he chose to make after helping numerous companies build their own brands and products that were specifically geared towards the young influencer market. In 2008 he decided it was time to take the leap and founded his own brand Android Homme. Self financed, and a tightly run operation has led to global distribution and respect from many of his fashion peers as well as the laundry list of celebrity clients and supporters of the brand.

His inspirations range from modern architecture to sacred geometry. His belief that the human mind is similar to a computer and therefore can be programmed or “Re-Programmed” is what serves as his ongoing inspiration to try new things. Locking Javier in a construct is a mistake, he is a unapologetic jack of all trades. Javier is a proud and loving father of two children, is fluent in spanish, a dedicated Yoga practitioner, meditation master, and biohacker that is focused on health and wellness through his LOVEMORE Labs.
