E. Leese

Historian, librarian, lover of community, and major movie nerd are just a few words that sum up what makes E. Leese who she is. From childhood, movies have been a major part of her household growing up. Saturday morning cartoons to mid day Kung Fu marathons, to late night horror flicks, movies and television was a common thread amongst her and her siblings. Introduced to her by her mother, E. Leese was never restricted on what she was allowed to watch or read. Her mother encouraged the imagination to flow and the time to get lost in a great book of visual story.

From the moment she saw The Color Purple, Doctor Who, Poltergeist, and The Omen, she knew she wanted to dig deeper into what made each character tick and how each actor developed their role. This fueled her love for science fiction, mystery, comics, suspense/horrors films. It also brought on the appreciation of great actors and directors and their work.

E. Leese never thought she would have the chance to talk movies and television outside of her circle of family and friends. So when the opportunity came to be a part of a group that shared the same passions that also shared that with the world, she jumped at the chance.

Howard Jerome

 

One of the earliest movies that shaped Jerome's tastes in film would have to be Fight Club. The psychological game that the movie plays on the viewer- a main character with no name & quick flashes of Tyler Durden foreshadowing the narrator's transition to his alter ego- caused him to break away from mold of main stream summer action flicks. Movies such as Clockwork Orange and Donnie Darko suddenly became more appealing with greater appreciation for character and plot development. Content rich movies took Jerome from a glazed eyed, barely-there-viewer, to an actively engaged analyst and critic. This love for character development and plot spilled over to television mysteries and drama, and even to books.

Jarvis Newsom

 

The first movie that really made Jarvis pay attention to the the art of film was The Usual Suspects. Once he reached the credits of the movie, the rewind button was pressed and it was viewed two more times consecutively. Aspects and values were analyzed; such as the script, camera angles, and cuts. He realized that these are the things that made a good story great. The show The Wire did much of the same for him that The Usual Suspects did.  Those two entries of visual storytelling inspired a love and passion for the art. Films such as Silence of the Lambs, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Inception, and more added to the passion. Even lighter fare such as RocknRolla (the boom of the comic book movie industry) and Office Space help show the escape possible with film. Now we're in the age where the tv drama is the top value of the small screen. Quality shows like Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead, Power, Sons of Anarchy, Dexter, and more push what we've known to come from the television drama. It can be a great and sometimes frustrating time to be a fan.

And with every new song, we got a new video and it seemed like they were always fly and strong. I wanted to be that! I still want that four finger LL ring lol"

Yo MTV Raps would change his life because of the hosts Dr. Dre and Ed Lover.

"That show had everything I needed in one shot! A DJ from Long Island, a dope co host, not only videos, but rappers would come through too"

One night he would accidentally find The Strentch & Bobbito underground radio show.

"That was the third strike right there! They were different and had more freedom to be and say what they wanted. Plus they would bring dope emcees up to freestyle all the time.... their show was just pure Hip Hop"

Khaliah Guillory

 

Khaliah’s daily motivation is to “Inspire one person to be BIG in the world.”  She is on a quest to ultimately ignite a global transformation.  Imagine a world filled with people who operate outside of having fear and have the gall to take steps towards pursuing purpose and passion in their life.  Don’t you get goose bumps just thinking about how powerful a world like that could be?

The journey to Entrepreneurship started with a whisper following one of her talks from a senior executive at the Fortune 500 company that Khaliah works for.  The executive leaned in and said, “I have no idea why we pay motivational speakers thousands of dollars to keynote when we have you on payroll.”  When Khaliah leaned back she thought, “You shole right, lady!” and in that moment KOG & Company was born.  KOG & Company’s platform enables Khaliah to share her journey through transformational talks that include story-telling.  As Khaliah navigated small business start-up, she quickly identified a grave need to create a support community for professionals with a passion for their side hustle AKA Corpreneurs.  Hence, Mogul in Training was formed to provide an online franchise-in-a-box blueprint that will provide accountability, mastermind sessions and revolutionize the way we network and embrace "networthing".

Jesse Fezia

 

In late 2017, Jesse was approached with the idea of becoming a podcaster. As an avid music-lover and collector, he couldn’t have been more ecstatic, and jumped at the grand opportunity to share music on such a platform.

Music has always played an instrumental role in Jesse’s life, as he grew up singing in church as youth and young adult. It served as his outlet and escape from the “real world”. Growing up in various parts of the melting pot that is Houston, TX, Jesse was exposed to a myriad of music genres and acquired an appreciation for the majority of them, which has honed his musical ear to be what it is today.  Among the genres in his catalogue of music, you’ll discover Neo-Soul, Alternative, R&B, Gospel, Country, Blue, Old Soul, Modern and Contemporary Jazz, etc.

As one-third of the Soul Food podcast, Jesse’s feels that it’s his personal mission and responsibility to share his passion for music, highlighting the latest and greatest in R&B, Neo-Soul, and Jazz music, that will nourish your soul. It is his wish that the followers will be introduced to music of artists they’ve never heard of and/or renewing interests in artists know and love of the past.

Layla E.

 

Layla E. has had an ongoing, passionate love affair with Hip Hop since the 1990's. Back then, everything was so colorful, fun and played the cool pop sounds of MC Hammer, The Fat Boys and most importantly, they graced the atmosphere with the sounds of one of the coolest trios ever; Run DMC. This early exposure fed her new-found love for the genre and opened the doors for the conscious rap of the 90’s, and the not so conscious rap, that came from the ‘dirty’ south and preached of “backing dat ass up” and having "25 lighters on the dresser (yes sir)".

Hip-Hop, being one of the newest musical genres, as well as quite possibly being the most streamed category, has continually evolved. It is because of this evolution, which is now also spurred on by the global community, that Layla’s desire to be involved with hip-hop, on all levels, is a driving force.

On her free time, Layla E enjoys travelling far and wide. Not only to gain a new perspective on culture, but also hip-hop. She is always discovering new talent and encouraging others to engage with these unique artists. Her goal is to bridge the gap in hip-hop internationally and let the world know who Layla E is.

Marcus Griffin

 

Marcus's love of everything in the world of Movies and TV allowed him to earn the title of Mr. Critic.  Always analyzing and dissecting everything about the components of a film and what them great. At a early age, Marcus realized his love of cinema when he use to spend hours watching various shows and movies with his mother. From after school toonami runs of Dragonball Z, Gundam wing, Naruto and countless shows. To sneaking into more adult films like Blade, The Matrix's and Lord of the Rings just to get a peak at what he was missing out on. The beauty of taking a person's ideas and creating moving art on display for millions to see is the amazing part of cinema.

Over the years, Marcus studied various courses that increased his knowledge about how the movie making process works, but changing his major and graduating from Sam Houston with a degree in Marketing and finance that would pay the bills, but his internal flame for the love of movies continue to burn.

Eventually Marcus decided to go into writing movie reviews on the side that gained Marcus a large following and from that the Fish N Grits podcast was born. Discussing everything in the world of Sports and Entertainment. Fish N Grits was the launching point that got the attention of the Sphere and allowed me to become one of the host of the Intermission podcast under the umbrella of the Sphere Podcast Network. Marcus is just a ordinary comicbook, sports and movies nerd that just wants to share his views and love of cinema to everyone that will listen.

Toni Sanders's mission is to teach others how to properly manage money and achieve financial freedom and independence. It is her privilege and honor to show clients the proper steps in building a solid financial house including growth, protection, safety and tax advantages.

Personally, Toni has learned how easy this process can be. As a successful hairstylist and entrepreneur, she knew how to make money and spend it! After being introduced to Transamerica/WFG in October 2014, Toni was intrigued with the idea of having a great retirement plan and ultimately leaving a legacy for her daughter. Having a second chance to build a proper financial foundation was also very exciting. Moreover, Toni realized that she knew people who also needed to learn about money and how to build wealth.
