"I created LOUD 87 to help others in the music and entertainment industry whether the client is an artist, songwriter, producer, dancer, presenter, photographer, cameraman, musician, DJ or an actor. Each project is catered specifically to that client.
LOUD 87 is a boutique style company that acts as an agency where we take each talent and consult with them to find out exactly what their goals and aspirations are and then build a marketing and development plan that is best suited for that client to get them to the next level. The main goal is to execute the plan and aim to make their dreams come true.
I formed LOUD 87 as a company because it enables me to use the networking links in the media that I already have and to continue to build an empire by linking different talents, companies, services and people. It allows me to give back to others what was not available to me when I was younger.
Destination is Greatness!"
