The 44 year old decorated combat veteran, BE'N ORIGINAL has unequivocally established himself as one of the most versatile multi-talented individuals in the entertainment industry as a whole.
Born in upstate New York, BE'N ORIGINAL's father instilled in him at a very young age, that he could do anything with the sheer power of his will, as long as he believed in himself. This "can do" attitude would shape his life.
Though he has always sought a role in the entertainment industry as a producer, it would be his talent with words that opened the doors.
" My reputation as a spoken word artist and poet led to an editor of an overseas magazine to request a writing sample. He was so impressed, I was given my own column ."
Writing would lead to placement with several leading outlets including The Source, XXL, King, Vibe, and Yahoo!. It would also help establish relationships with a plethora of industry executives and celebrities across the many facets of the entertainment industry.
These relationships would create opportunities for BE'N ORIGINAL to showcase his other talents through his marketing company UMA Marketing and Advertising, as well as, launch the careers of 7X Essence bestselling author/publisher Michele Fletcher and Def Poet/TV personality Amanda "Diva" Seales. He would also launch his own media outlet, Urban Magazine.
Urban Magazine is an urban entertainment media outlet covering culture, music, fashion and sports as they relate to urban consumers.
Despite having worked with a multitude of household brands, there is clearly one project that he is most proud, Levina Lye's Pieces of Me EP. . . with a highly anticipated release date of June 2014.
