The story only gets told, once you use your voice…
…so, here’s mine: I was born in Heidelberg, Germany to two Panamanian immigrants-turned-citizens, as they served in the U.S. Army. Raised in Brooklyn, NY, I chose to attend Morehouse College in Atlanta, GA and it’s there that I managed to stumble upon “my voice.”
After being invited to Atlanta University Center’s student radio station, as a guest on a friend’s show, I knew I belonged in front of the microphone. There was something intoxicating about how comfortable being in a recording booth made me feel, how effortless it was for me to tell stories and how exciting it was to express specific ideas in a way that would grab the attention of those listening.
During my tenure, my passion eventually led me to become the station’s morning show host for three years and, eventually, the station’s production and program director. By this point, I was in love…so, I continued to broaden my audio production knowledge by branching into freelance voiceover work, working part-time as a news reporter for Jazz 91.9 FM WCLK and briefly reporting traffic for Clear Channel Communications.
Since then, I’ve went on to start my own freelance digital media production company, rumorBoy LLC, under which I continue do voiceover work as well as produce creative content for both myself and other digital brands. These brands have included AOL Black Voices, BBOX Radio, NewsOne, TheLoop21, MUSED Magazine Online and more.
And that’s just where the story begins.
