Twenty-one years old born in Scranton Pennsylvania. At the age of ten moves to the Pocono mountain area with his mother and stepfather. He now lives in Scranton, PA. Went to school in Stroudsburg where kids from many school districts and areas attended. Most kids parents commuted back and forth to New York City and left empty houses, where large parties were thrown daily. Due to the different variety of people Profess hung with, he was introduced to different styles and different cultures. At the age of eleven he witnesses his first freestyle session on the streets of East Stroudsburg High School...it was fascination, and love at first sight. Being able to catch reception of New York city's Hot 97 'blazin' hip-hop and R&B' infamous radio station, he grew up in the times as Emcee's came and went. From former art student at the Balm school of excellence, to Scholarship into Marywood University for sculpting; he could not escape his love, passion and dreams...music! Traveling all over Northeastern Pennsylvania, rhyming at all the local Parties, with a sparkle in his eyes destined for Bigger things. He has since performed in Harlem, (The Upper Manhattan) Freeport, L.I., (Jamroc) Downtown New York, (Nell's, The Pyramid, Rocky's), Uptown Manhattan (Decade) and Upstate New York, (Legend's in Woodstock). He did a few gigs in Dublin, Ireland as well this year. Fox 5 News just did an interview with him calling him 'The NEXT Big Thing'. You can watch it on the website. In 1999 while rhyming in a local hip hop group, his present manager discovered him. That was a turning point for Profess, which made him dedicate his life to hip-hop. The last four years have been spent in developing Profess, working all over New York City with different hip-hop and reggae producers constantly increasing his skills and feeding his fixation to rhyme. Due to his different background he brings an originality to the table, he is adored, respected, and accepted by other urban Emcee's and Reggae artists. He brings a positive, energetic vibe, and a wacky personality not afraid to be a goof. But when it comes to striking a flow with lyric from a different planet... Profess is in a category of his own!
