Lionel's story

LIONEL "MARCUS" BROWN, OWNER AND FOUNDER – METRO BLVD Founded in 2011 and based on years of previous experience in event promotions and management, music composition, productions and intellectual property law, I began Metro Blvd to compete in a highly technological and advancing media industry. Following graduation from high school, I began the concept of Metro Blvd in the early 2000s while studying and traveling all over the globe. Among others, my travels have been to a wide variety of places such as Stuttgart, Germany; Amman, Jordan; Bangkok, Thailand, London, England; and New York, New York. Living in or even visiting these places provided an interesting perspective into various artistic and cultural expressions, especially music. From a community-building and musical influence perspective, I have created a host of events for talent that encompassed the budding electronic scene of Central and Western Europe while merging shows and music with American-styled music. Having then decided to study law in Charleston, South Carolina and Intellectual Property Law in New York, New York, I was able to apply a deep-seeded appreciation and commitment to media to include publishing, copyright, trademark, and licensing. While studying at the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law, I was fortunate to work under the Deputy General Counsel for Warner Bros.’ DC Comics. This experience introduced me to a host of industry participants where I saw first-hand what it takes to run a successful publishing business based on U.S. Copyright and Contracts Law. The mission for Metro Blvd has grown from an obscure concept to one that facilitates multimedia productions which span a host of formats, is based on exceptional reference-points, and which involve many different talents. Provided the advent of technology, vast changes to the media industry, and a shift that serves to now benefit copyright proprietors, my vision of Metro Blvd is to fit squarely within emerging possibilities throughout the media industry.
