23 years ago Mr. Brown was sitting in a cube writing case studies about relational database development when he got a call from a New York producer who had seen a quip about him in a nationally syndicated gossip column (long story). A few days later he got off the plane at La Guardia to find a limo driver holding a placard with his name on it. When he arrived at the network studio the executive producer took one look at him and declared that he was to be the star of the show (one episode); and after 30 minutes of coaching he appeared in front of a studio audience. His single episode got the highest rating in the show's history and a few weeks later he opened for Larry King on a talk show produced in Los Angeles.
Mr. Brown didn't enjoy being famous so he went behind the camera as a publicist/co-producer. He booked his first client for 11 television appearances and the client soon became the host of his own cable-network talk show. He then co-produced a "televised-live" technology conference in Washington DC featuring keynotes by industry titans Bill Gates and Andy Grove. Without advance notice, Jane Fonda, Ted Turner, Sam Donaldson, and Ron Brown, among other luminaries, crashed the party with surprise appearances and the main event was covered by AP, Reuters, Business Wire, the Wall Street Journal, USA Today, PBS, CSPAN, CNN, the Discovery Channel, and TV networks from Japan, Germany, and France. The conference was televised live around the world, garnering more than 200 million viewers.
Since 2006 Mr. Brown has co-produced numerous Hip Hop music videos, CDs, live shows, street art exhibitions, and biograpnical documentaries with emerging artists in Mexico City, Culiacán, Tijuana, and Izmir, Turkey. He is now directing globalized creative teams in Mexico, Pakistan, India, Hungary, and Tajikistan who are using the SalesForce1 mobile-app development platform, the Adobe Creative Cloud collaborative platform, and the Unity game engine to create innovative distribution channels & business models for interactive-media & social-video producers.
In October, 2014 he co-produced the inaugural emergence of the FANtastic Horror Film Festival in San Diego, California. His nine-year sponsorship of Sinaloan media maker Emilio Trelles Aramburo has recently escalated from co-producing indie film shorts & music videos into an explosive creative collaboration resulting in Mr. Arumburo's debut feature film to be released in early 2016.
Based in San Diego, California, Mr. Brown is currently developing an original series with some of Nepal's top filmmakers that will tell the stories of children recovering from the earthquakes of April 25th and May 12th, 2015. He is also working with international screenwriters & creatives to adapt his unpublished novel, the Earth Metal Trilogy, into a cinematic universe and global franchise.
Mr. Brown's Hollywood publicist is Dawna Lee Heising, executive producer of 'Eye on Entertainment' and Hollywood actress with 23 film & video projects in development, 11 film & video projects in production, 53 film & video credits, 42 television credits, 8 theatrical credits, 21 credits as the featured model in TV & print advertising campaigns, and 5 casting director credits. As one of the hardest working women in show business, Ms. Heising has been the recipient of 12 entertainment-industry awards.
Dawna also represents emerging media star Fernando Vargas-Parra, 27, a Mexican professional boxer who has appeared in numerous internationally televised boxing matches and who just won his first US bout. Mr. Vargas-Parra is considered by many in the boxing industry to be a contender for a world title. Mr. Brown has been Fernando's manager since 2006, his debut year as a professional boxer.

Series by Zalan Games Creative Executive Bunny Hostage is a show about powerful women, their mentors, and their men. The humanitarian mission of the show is to raise money for Nepal Moon's training and mentorship program for earthquake-recovery project teams. For example, more than 6,000 women and girls were trafficked from destroyed villages to brothels in India after the earthquakes of April/May, 2015. We'll be channeling some of our sponsor money to the recovery centers in Nepal that are caring for the young girls who have been rescued but who have no homes or families to return to or who have been rejected by their communities because of the taint of having been enslaved prostitutes. And then we'll provide ongoing support to projects teams who are implementing long-term solutions to help the girls and women create a better life for themselves.
