Drake Alexander Piscione is an actor + model, the founder of the streetwear brand, Faith vs. Fury, an athlete, and an advocate.

 

Drake was identified as athletically gifted at the age of three after riding a two-wheel bike at his Montessori preschool at the age of two, was accepted as a Davidson Young Scholar at the age of six.  Also a gifted tennis player at six years old, Drake was featured on “Our America with Lisa Ling” on OWN.  He was discovered by a Pottery Barn photographer at the age of five, which led to consistent work as a model and actor, booking print jobs and roles on Disney, HBO, Discovery, OWN, Lifetime and DreamworksTV.  


At the age of 10, Drake played competitive tennis, and his coaches told his parents that he has all the abilities and work ethic to go pro in tennis.  

At 12 years old, he landed a hosting role called “Nailed it!.” 

In 2020, Drake raised $12K+ from a Kickstarter campaign for Faith vs. Fury, a streetwear brand with a mission to support micro-startup funding for African American founders of Gen Z. 

In the summer of 2021, Drake led research to create a pipeline and inclusive culture for historically underrepresented groups in finance and asset management.  The primary research goal is to gain a better understanding and appreciation for how young people, ages 15-25, think about finance or asset management as a potential career path, since this course work is not taught in high school.  Drake collaborated with leadership at the Carlson School of Management and received methodology support from Harvard Professor Josh Lerner. Collectively, they created a blueprint for change in the field of asset management.
 

At 16, he transferred to the Menlo School to play water polo and garnered friends of the children of Silicon Valley billionaires 


Drake has been privileged to travel internationally since the age of seven, including countries such as Cuba, Vietnam, Cambodia, S. Korea, Costa Rica, Brazil and UAE.  Some of the countries Drake has visited and experiences he has had are chronicled in The Happiness Lab.
