Core Team


PNDORAS BOX is led by Founder and Creative Director Ricky Shepherd II who has significant tech experience leaving behind a job at Hewlett Packard to build ownership and the home of the future for gamers and creators. I've always had an affinity for games and often used them as an outlet to escape reality growing up.

The metaverse isn’t just a passion project. I felt it was my job as a creator to help contribute to the world while inspiring and connecting people. I saw the negative press and feedback about the metaverse and wanted to right the ship.

PNDORAS BOX is inspired by 80’s and 90’s pop culture from novels such as Ready Player One to the book Snow Crash. As a surge of web 3 companies emerge, it's only a matter of time before players, creators, and companies' values as a community will have to align.
