Intrigued as a child and having a keyboard in hand since age 5 -- As a high school sophomore, Othello was inspired to download a trial of a music production program. From that day on, he began to grow and develop his skills as a producer. Searching for a name to identify himself by, he adopted the moniker Othello, acknowledging his African-American and Italian ancestry.
Following high school graduation, Othello moved east once again, living with his father, attending East Stroudsburg University, and perfecting his craft. He also found success in radio, becoming Production Director for ESU’s 90.3 WESS, and hosting his own show, “It’s All in Black and White.” In 2006, Othello returned to Minnesota. There, he formed Othello Productions and began to grow his fan base via social media.
