What Fans Should Know About Me: Born in Hawaii and raised in San Diego, CA, Jerome is a military progeny who has been blessed to travel the world and be exposed to diverse learning experiences and people. These experiences served as a perfect platform for preparing him to minister and relate to people from all over the world, which would later become an integral part of his purpose in life. Jerome has been a poet at heart and has had the gift of rhyme all of his life, but his serious commitment to writing and reciting began in 2009 after he clearly heard the voice of the Lord tell him, “I GAVE YOU A GIFT…USE IT!!!” From that moment forward, he has been dedicated to using his God-Given gifts as a scribe which include poetry, songwriting, and rapping. To date, Jerome has released several compilations. Why JSpeaks (2016), A Different Dynamic EP (2016), and the single, God is Greater (2017) are a just few of his current top charting production.
In recent years, Jerome has also added acting to his artistic repertoire. Whether on stage, in front of the camera, or managing behind the scenes, Jerome has found he is comfortable in every aspect of the theatre and film world. Currently, he has had the privilege of using his acting, MC, and poetic skills in The Calling of a Call Girl (2011), Just When You Thought You Had Me (2012), Judgement Day (2016), The Birthing (2016), Speak Out: A Domestic Violence Stage Play (2018), and Da Dealership (2018). These productions are only the beginning of what God has in store for him!
In addition to his artistic endeavors, Jerome is also a teacher, and humanitarian who serves as the social media director for Speak Out Inc., a nonprofit organization on a mission to bring awareness and education about the effects of domestic violence in Houston and surrounding communities. Additionally, 50% of all sales from his single, God is Greater are donated to various hurricane/typhoon relief efforts. Jerome is an artist set apart by God who ministers through his talent for the purpose of conveying the Word of God in diverse ways. His hope is that through his gifts, the minds, hearts and eyes of people will be opened so that they may realize this world is bigger than Self. His ultimate purpose is that his art will be the vessel that leads people to form an intimate relationship with the Lord.
