My artist name is Vanache (va ~ nash), currently living and working in New York City as a full-time music producer, actor, brand ambassador and creative artist. My career started in 2008 prior to earning a B.A. from Temple University (Philadelphia, 2008)
I released two independent projects entitled "Remember the Face EP" (2010) and "Dancing with Lava Soaked Angels" (2012).
I was also curating parties and events in Philadelphia. This is around the time I took on photography and began doing nightlife/candid photography. While dabbling in content creation; I also launched a visual web-series with the help of The Philadelphia Inquirer. The show was called "The Closet Stocker" (2010), where in each episode I took viewers on a joy ride through some of Philadelphia's coolest locations. 7 episodes were syndicated.
Soon after, I move to New York City (2012) where I believed I needed to be.
The first role I landed was in the video for Kendrick Lamar's "Poetic Justice" feat Drake. BONUS POINTS if you can find me.
Here's a Hint, GO Raiders!!
MTV discovered me from my previous work, and asked me to join their cast for the Look Different PSA Campaign. A series of situational moments where characters our confronted with everyday verbal, nonverbal, and environmental slights, snubs, or insults, whether intentional or unintentional, which communicate hostile, derogatory, or negative messages targeted to persons based solely upon their marginalized group membership.
From there, I become an official Brand Ambassador for BET's WHAT's At STAKE. A community and platform geared toward millennials as an outlet to discuss what matters most to them in our ever changing society.
I'm very passionate about connecting people, telling stories and discovering the wonders of life. As a Savvy Ranger, I'll be exploring different topics relating to a number of interests such as art, music, fashion, personal health and more. Like I said, being a savvy ranger is a lifestyle. So, expect a healthy supply of unique content, goods, and services geared toward living life the Savvy Ranger style.
Great meeting you!!
