Rita is the heart of the machine behind the art. If you ring our phone, there’s a good chance she’ll be the one to answer. She comes from over 30 years experience owning, managing, and directing the finances for salons. She parlayed that experience into a successful consulting firm, providing services to salons, hairdressing associations and chain accounts to improve technical and business performance.
Adrian Taverner is an award-winning independent cinematographer and screenwriter with a background in creative writing and design, photography, and DJing. Adrian worked in the film industry in Vancouver, migrating from post audio to loc audio to locations to grip to practical effects and back to post on what feels like half the shows to come out of BC in the last fifteen years. In 2009 he moved to New York so he could wear all of those hats at the same time, adding a few more like camera and steadicam op. As part of the team, he shoots, gaffs, grips, mixes, writes, web-admins, and creates most of the brand imagery. He and producing partner Lee Baran have won some Telly awards. He loves it all, which is a good thing if he’s going to continue supporting his writing habit.

Except where noted otherwise, the List Price displayed for products on our website represents the full retail price listed on the product itself.

With respect to items sold by Fuel, we cannot confirm the price of an item until you order; however, we do NOT charge your credit card until after your order has entered the shipping process. Despite our best efforts, an item in our catalog may be priced incorrectly. If an item’s correct price is higher than our stated price, we will, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before shipping or cancel your order and notify you of such cancellation.
Please note that this policy applies only to products sold and shipped by Fuel. Your purchases from a partner through our site are charged at the time you place your order, and our partners may follow different policies in the event of an incorrectly priced item.
