Producing Stories to Tell to Everyone in the World
The Beginnings of a Visionary, Artist and Businessman
Born and raised in Shreveport, Louisiana, Cairo Amen II began conceptualizing film projects long before the thought of ever moving to Los Angeles. An artist and perfectionist at-heart, he has always been inspired in the art of legacy-building by both past and present relatives alike who themselves were successful entrepreneurs. Cairo first elevated himself into entrepreneurship at a very young age via his hand-drawn artwork.
After leaving corporate-America in 2008, Mr. Amen officially went on to start his own talent management company in which he provided services as an advisor, scout, consultant, and talent manager to clients in both professional sports and the entertainment industry. After years of profitable stock investments, Cairo now funds acts and film projects as an executive producer of independent films. He also owns Cairo Amen Apparel (a private clothing label) and an independent record label titled Beauty-Full Music Group LLC. Cairo is currently a member of both the Hollywood Chamber-of-Commerce and the Greater Los Angeles African American Chamber-of-Commerce (GLAAACC) with future plans of running for public office.
