Name SOLO
About The ability to create and execute the perfect event, to be the center of attention while making sure everyone around you has the time of their lives, to use the success of one event as the foundation for your next great social offering all of this is an art, mastered only through talent and dedication. For the true master of ceremonies, that talent is innate. But beyond this talent, the natural born entertainer must also learn and understand every aspect of organizing, promoting and hosting the perfect party. By those guidelines, Solo is every bit the master of ceremonies and more.
His professional career started during his days as a Political Science/Biology student at Clark-Atlanta University. While running and producing his own morning radio show, WSTU 98.1FM is when Solo discovered that he could make a career of what he had been doing since middle school: being the life of the party while ensuring that everyone in attendance walked away from the party with an unforgettable experience. Before long, Solo was the go-to host for Atlanta University Center functions and private events alike. While continuing to hone his skills, Solo began learning the ins and outs of events promotions and the nightlife industry. Starting as a bathroom attendant at the infamous Gold Club, Solo worked his way up the ranks at Atlantas most prestigious nightclubs, from 112 to The Bounce, before joining the operational team behind Studio 72, which was frequented by Atlantas own Jermaine Dupri. By this time he graduated Summa Cum Laude from Clark Atlanta, Solo had started gaining recognition on the local social scene for the same skills, charisma and creativity that had made him the AUC host of choice. He also established his own brand, Solo Entertainment & Marketing, which specializes in presenting brands to urban audiences through collaborative partnerships. To date, he has created and hosted events for the likes of Jay-Z, Janet Jackson, Mariah Carey, Ludacris, Rick Ross, Floyd Mayweather and Usher, working alongside such brands as Billboard Magazine and MTV. Solo also hosts one of the largest events recognizing and celebrating Hip-Hop culture, the Southern Entertainment Awards, which he hosted for the ninth consecutive year in 2012.
Now, with his reputation and relationships firmly established, in addition to credits on his resume as a host, on-air talent, DJ and voice over artist, Solo is ready to brand himself as an internationally renowned personality. But his vision exceeds his own success. His desire is to become the voice of his generation while inspiring the next.
A full grasp and understanding of his arena. An unmatched ability to create experiences. A 360-view and awareness of his path. Solo is THAT guy: the next great one-man brand.

Additional Notes
   I am college educated with 2 degrees and now that I have finished up my education/training for radio/tv broadcasting I am a one stop shop. I am very known in the ATLANTA market for being a nightclub manager/owner and promoter in the city. I have done numerous things in the entertainment business for the last 12 plus years but I am not posting this to discuss those things. I am posting this to discuss the opportunity of me working as on-air personality and producer.

Yes, I am fully capable of doing everything in radio plus I have the training and certificates to prove it. I am energetic, creative and yearning for an opportunity to be a benefit to your team. I am a great addition to your program not simply because I am popular in the city and is a great asset but I can edit and produce radio commercials and I can edit and produce videos in 3 different software programs. I am not the typical applicant/intern/colleague that you see every day. I am very versatile and can blend in anywhere for any demographic. Let me be apart of the team and I can show you better than I can tell you. My work ethic is unmatched on all levels. I hope you are able to find an opportunity for my talents in this field. Thank you for your time and patience in advance.
