Dhani Jones began his career as an NFL linebacker, playing with the New York Giants, Philadelphia Eagles, and Cincinnati Bengals. For most football players the NFL is a career, but for Dhani it was just a jumping off point for his other pursuits: entrepreneur, philanthropist, author, host, and explorer.
In 2010, he launched his philanthropic endeavor, BowTie Cause, designing signature bow ties for organizations around the country. He has also since become partner of two advertising agencies, PROCLAMATION based in Cincinnati, and VMG-Creative in New York. His entrepreneurial spirit has continued to push him in new directions, adding Qey Capital and Hyur Staffing Services to his roster. The well-spoken Jones is also the author of a travelogue/memoir, The Sportsman: Unexpected Lessons from an Around the World Sports Odyssey. It recaps his rise to NFL fame, as well as his experiences as host of the Travel Channel’s original series “Dhani Tackles the Globe”, which allowed him to discover that sports have the universal ability to open windows into culture, define a destination, and unlock common passions in people that are as different as they are familiar. He is currently the host of “Playbook 360” and “GT Academy,” both on Spike TV.
