Lawrence Beard | Videographer/Photographer/Promoter/Director/Editor

I would love for my legacy to be compassion and positivity. I always had a vision of being able to help people in some way. Growing up a dark skinned, African American male in the United States has definitely shaped the way I view life and appreciate every moment of it.

I am there for everyone no matter what they need. If they need a ride to the airport in the middle of the night. No problem! If they need me to help them with a project last minute and I already had plans that had been on my calendar for months. Read more>>
