About Tyrone Green

Tyrone Green, who left Wall Street to start the "Dark Side of the Moo" food truck, said that many of the lessons he learned in finance he had to learn all over again as his own boss in the high-paced, win-or-lose food industry. Before starting his business, Green traded precious metals for six years and then worked at a hedge fund until he decided he was burned out. "I need to stop doing this," Green said he told himself at the time. After Hurricane Sandy devastated his neighborhood in Hoboken, New Jersey, Green was inspired by food trucks' efforts to feed people in the area and got on the road with his own. Green said entrepreneurship has brought volatility along with freedom.
