Thorn City Syndicate Management est. 2014
A documentary, in partnership with Gaddis Motion Productions, is now in the last stages of production. It details the 3rd Twins' battle with sobriety and journey back to becoming a recording music artist. I've spent the last 2+ years helping grow and building the GMP Podcast Group Brand with my business partner Juston Gaddis who co-produced and wrote the script for the 3rd Twin’s Award-Winning Video, which was a life-changing experience for me. “ I love what I do and how it helps people. I get great satisfaction from someone having an idea and helping them bring it to life to follow their dreams.

Life has not always been this way for me Something changed. I was helping out my best friend Roy Moore III, who went under the rap name 3rd Twin a local hip-hop artist who once had a promising music career. After being down and out, he let life get the best of him and became addicted to drugs and alcohol. I made a plan and led him to his victory, which inspired me to start my business.
Thorn City Syndicate. I started this business from my experience helping him launch his music career to new heights. He gave me the opportunity to book his shows for him, manage and grow his brand, and reach success after producing his “Honesty,” Ep, and Award-Winning Music Video that was officially selected to many different Film Festivals and won two awards for Best Music Video Internationally and in the US.
A Music Video that would capture Roy's story and the painful events that fed into his addiction told from the perspective of
a man who commits suicide and finds himself in a purgatory between life and death, reliving the conditions and events that
led to his addiction and tragic end. I’m proud of the impact that
he continues to make in this generation as a public figure
and community activist. He’s now 5 + years clean and sober,
a homeowner, and director of the community care team with
the non-profit Portland opportunity industrialization center.
Podcasting is solidly in the mainstream of popular culture, and it's growing in popularity. The need for a podcast and content has reached a critical mass that's why we provide the best we can offer to help businesses tell their stories and help grow your audience. I'm looking to build an old school network, a group of businesses, brands, and influencers that are cross-promoting. Our goal is to put together a group that have the potential to grow each other’s audiences through cross-promotion. Why should you create a network? Because it works! In order to survive in this ever-evolving market, we need to be able to explore different ways of engaging our audience and connect with them. We all know this is a big issue, and so many companies are spending plenty of resources to make that easier. One way you can make it easier is by creating a network. We want to make it easy to showcase and start growing brands. We could all look to benefit from creating our own network, it's tricky to get one to grow and be successful. We’re looking for creators who are interested in joining the network. We’re looking for shows that are already out, have just been released, or both. We’re looking for podcasters who want to be an active part of a community and work with other podcasts to grow their audience. To join the network, you have to be consistent. Consistency allows listeners to easily recognize your podcast. You have to be prepared to be;
Have and Keep Clear Goals in Mind ...
Use (and Expand) Your Network through cross-promotions?
To amplify important stories…
To become a part of a supportive community environment.
We want reliable, highly produced, and consistent podcasts on the network. This is essential in order for the network to act as a form of cross-promotion for each member show and a one-stop shop for listeners looking for shows in your particular niche or genre.
Our primary goal is to distribute great content surrounding a bigger mission and help your podcast gain traction.
The network will launch in 2023. We already have a great group of shows lined up and ready for release.
We have already solidified our partnerships and created a strong foundation for the network. The big picture to keep in mind when it comes to cohesiveness is that every member shows will be united under one mission and vision. Every new show add to the network will be made in alignment with what the GMP Podcast Group is trying to achieve.
That’s not to say every podcast should be exactly the same — that would be boring, and the content we push out would be overly repetitive. Instead, we aim for diversity in the perspectives being shared but consistency in the overall goals set by our member podcasts. We want to see important and educational messages uplifted and spread around to the widest audience possible.
We want to expand the opportunities for cross-promotions, paid advertisements, new potential network members, podcast episode guests, and more that can be mutually beneficial for the network as a whole.
If you think GMP Network could be mutually beneficial for your show, reach out and connect with us. We will love to hear from you!
