How Lloyd got into the Entertainment Business:

Lloyd spent his early years in Burbank, California, where he was surrounded by entertainment and entertainers. He started by producing back yard puppet shows when he 5 years old: “I never performed, I just organized the neighbor kids and collected the money.” Later, the kids revolted due to a labor dispute regarding their back end participation deal. Early on, Lloyd learned that he needed more legal training.

When he was a little older, his family moved to Laguna Beach, California, and that’s where his love for entertainment met action sports. Adams had a dedicated commitment to action sports and the lifestyle from his earliest memories. Lloyd’s commitment can be summed up by this one simple account of his mother, she stated:

“I remember having to chastise Lloyd after reading my water bill only to learn that Lloyd emptied our pool of 23,000 gallons of water. He said he was bored and wanted to skate with his friends.” As a teenager, his passion for Surf, Skate, Snow and Dirt Jumping left him brushed, broken and battered. His mother accounts, “He would come in the house after a day of skateboarding and just leave trails of blood – with a smile on his face, he would head to the medicine cabinet for some Bactine and band aids, patch himself up and shoot another hill or skate a pool; there are lot of hills and pools in Laguna; I think he has tried every hill.”

Lloyd’s father, Glenn Molander, and youngest brother Leif, lived in Hawaii, another playground for Lloyd’s action sports imagination: giant surf, cliff jumping, etc. – it was all fair game.

Even now, with decades of experience as a veteran television and film producer and entertainment executive, Lloyd still has the heart, imagination and enthusiasm of the bruised and battered 14-year-old, staring wide-eyed at the top of a steep Laguna hill; but the focus now is centered on balancing work and play. “You have to do what you love, and I’ve been extremely fortunate and blessed to parlay my academic and real life experiences into my ventures; I am passionate and tenacious about life,” says Lloyd. “Let the timid stay home” is his mantra. “You can’t be afraid to fail, you need to try and try again to succeed and surround yourself with great people; I have great people around me; the best friends and colleagues you could ask for and that is what makes it fun, exciting and helps mitigate risk”.

Lloyd has one daughter, Lauren Brooke Adams, who attends SMU, and a Frenchie named Morty, who went to Petco Obediance (most improved).
