Hi Willie, thanks for sharing your story with us. To start, maybe you can tell our readers some of your backstory
As a young boy, I always had a love for the music industry years later In 2017 I picked up a love for podcast so I started a podcast right In North Dade Regional Library Called The Upcomers Podcast So from there I launched my first interview with a upcoming rapper NSG SIMBA and at the time I really needed funds to provide for myself I felt so I started going into film learning how to use a camera I first picked up videography learning how to shoot music videos so I stopped the podcast to pursue my film production company which is Called CXSHOUT DESIGNS which I thought of this name in 2018 I started to take it really seriously Lol I remember my first video I shoot lol it was a very poor video & I didn’t stop from there though I just kept working although being a videographer / photographer is not my passion I learned a lot from it being patient & brave it had gained me a lot of connections with people, places , things Currently now in 2021 Cxshout Designs have We Have Been From the Bottom We Still are Grinding I now am back where I started & loved doing interviews, and artist management which are my life And I want to dearly dedicate this to my 2closet friends that been on the journey with me since middle school Dj & Six You Guys I couldn’t done it without you this is our year 2021 & Thanks To All Our Supporters We All Are Great ! – CXSHOUT DESIGNS
