Looking to join network, my company will do things in the entertainment industry never done before!

Hello, My name is Juan A. Thompson, I'm the Founder/ President/ CEO of the Independent Artist Competition Association, Inc. (IACA). I'm originally from Dayton, OH, however, grew up the majority of my life in Hampton Roads, VA. I boxed for over 25 years both amateur and professional, combined. Ever since I was a kid, I wanted to be a movie director and used to draw my own comic books. However, in 1998, I got my first taste of being in a recording studio and I completely feel in love. I began working with an independent label just doing stuff like; running errands, making sure artists were on time to the studio, etc. During that time I was learning the basic of the music industry. I purchased a game called, "MTV's Music Generator" and I started making beats on it...and I became fascinated with making beats. I even starting writing songs and notice I was pretty good at that, too. I transitioned into a music producer working with various local artists in the studio. I never got a chance to work with anyone on a major scale or major artist. My production was unique and very detailed. I had an ear for instruments and I am one of those people who just don't hear music, I feel music. So, in 2002 I began transitioning into an artist manager in Atlanta. I dealt with many artists throughout the years and doing various projects. However, during this time, I still had a love for film. I've always been fascinated with movies, especially epic movies. I would, literally, purchase the my favorite movie's DVD just to watch the special features to see how it was made. I ended up writing a script for a comic book character I created when I was a kid. I'm almost complete with it, however, it's a very interesting story. I don't know if I'll ever get the opportunity to see it come alive, it would be awesome, however. I would say that my most proudest creation was my company, the IACA. The IACA is the world's first-ever professional sports league for independent recording artist stage performance competition. I invented and patented a new revolutionary form of music competition I call, "Music-Sports". Music-Sports combines a unique scoring system with the infrastructure of professional sports league, much like the NFL and NBA. I honestly believe that this platform will change the music industry. Well, I've always been told that If I had money behind me I would be a very dangerous man, because it's so easy for me to create things. All I can do is keep hope and faith in GOD and meet the right people in the future. Well, that's my story and I hope you liked what I had to say.
