My Story

Like my idol, Rod Serling, I’m a tired, nonconformist trying to obtain my freedom from the system, so I can create art and tell stories that move people, on my terms.

People have always told me what I couldn’t do, who I couldn’t be and why my dreams were unrealistic. I’ve never been good at listening so I joined the Marine Corps when I was told I couldn’t hack it. Then, I went to college and completed my undergrad and graduate degrees in 3 years to learn how to become a better communicator and a multifaceted professional.
Ironically, I did not go to school to “find a job.” I went to find myself, and fortunately, that’s what happened.

That isn’t to say there’s anything wrong with wanting to do things the traditional way. I have held several jobs at great places.

It’s not that I dislike the corporations I have worked for, or the people I’ve met.

Despite my time in the Marine Corps, college and business school, I wrestled with two dilemmas:
1. Taming my need to create
2. Managing my overabundance of unbridled passion. 

Like most artists, creating is my divine nectar. Without the opportunity to draw or write, I cease to exist. No amount of money can satisfy my need to create; however, it can help cover the bills while I create until my body withers into the ether of the cosmos.

In case you were wondering about the two websites:

I created Beau Noir first, but then thought about what I want to do 10 years from now. So, to give myself some freedom, I created Beau Noir Media as the creative arm of the Beau Noir brand.

"Media" is attached to it because I want to convey my art through different forms of media. And, I also thought Beau Noir Entertainment sounded gaudy. And... I really like saying BN[R]M; it just sounds cool.
