About Taurai

Hello everyone.

My name is Taurai pronounced “tow-ray”.

My pathway to come on board Stage32 is derived from my personal and musical development from a myriad of life experiences and influences. I used to write rock lyrics as a hobby during my early 20’s. This was after falling in love with music bands such as Jefferson Airplane, U2, Garbage, Nirvana, Korn,Jimi Hendrix, Staind, Hoobastank, Third Eye Blind, just to name a few. In the month of April 2021, I wrote a song and submitted it to a Rock Band based in Novokuznetsk, Siberia in Russia. They are called Bootleggers. Check them out on IG: @bad_blues_factory

I am also a lover of EDM, Drum ' n Bass, and Electro – Pop.

It was only after briefly networking with screenwriters that I explored “story-telling” for filmmaking and then I got hooked. Using the basics that I have used in being a lyricist, I wrote a 9pager synopsis for my first story. The milestone thus far, is that I completed the screenplay and now writing my second one.

So far, I am happy with the creative process thus far.

It is thus my goal to reference my life experience to a global audience and present marketable stories that would resonate with the mass.

Work experience-wise, I have worked in five different industries at management level namely in Aviation, Banking, Hospitality (before Covid), Retail - FMCG, and Online Gambling. Hobbies wise, I ice skate and network.

I am happy to connect and learn with you and to tell stories that have impact and marketability.

Shalom/ Maita/ Thanks again.

Taurai.

Unique traits: A lion, courageous, ambitious and accountable.
