“Image is everything when it comes to the entertainment industry” -Ron
Ron grew up in Cleveland, Ohio, where he was exposed to the arts at the age of 11. Ron’s father knew that getting his son involved in performing arts and playing organized sports would be a great way to keep his only son off the rough streets of East Cleveland; where many of his neighborhood peers were involved in gangs and other unfulfilling activities. Ron caught the modeling/acting bug and stayed active in the performing arts throughout his adolescent years. Getting bookings through his local talent agency kept a few dollars in his pockets and also helped him to become independent at a young age.
Upon graduation from high school, he moved to Columbus, Ohio to attend The Ohio State University. While there, he earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Management with a concentration in Finance. During his time at Ohio State, he participated in an array of extracurricular activities including varsity football, student societies and performing arts. While his educational focus was not in theatre and performing arts, he still remained active pursuing a career in entertainment outside of school. After graduating from college in June 2004 and working in corporate America for 6 years or so, he decided to move to Atlanta, GA to pursue his career in entertainment full-time.
Since his move to Atlanta in August 2010, he managed to book various acting roles on major television productions, such as Tyler Perry’s House of Payne, VH1’s Single Ladies, BET’s The Game, BET’s Being Mary Jane, and The Steve Harvey Show. Ron found himself being an understudy for actors such as Ludacris, Pooch Hall, RonReaco Lee, Allen Payne, and Michael Ealy, just to name a few. He also was a supporting actor in the independent film Slice 1 and 2, starring and produced by comedian/actor Pierre Edwards.
To this day, Ron is still working in the entertainment industry. Because of his experience, knowledge, and creative thinking, a vast number of talents seek his business advice on all levels. He now advises and consult numerous talent throughout the industry thru his talent management company, Tyler Management Group (TMG). Ron is a huge advocate for entrepreneurship, and co-owns several businesses that are steadily flourishing, which includes his film production company, PAYUS Productions.
