Was there a particular reason you chose LA ?

Los Angeles offers a huge variety of career opportunities, especially in media and journalism.  The entrepreneurial, extremely competitive environment allows those that have the rigor to become very successful in their field.  In 2005 I started RMG News (with my two brothers) and we have since become one of the most respected news gathering agencies in LA.  We embed ourselves in the worst areas of town and capture the unimaginable scenes left behind by gang violence, drug warfare and inner city life.  We supply the world’s mainstream media outlets with adrenaline-filled, breaking news footage on a daily basis and with over 20 years in the profession our ever-growing archive contains some of the most dramatic footage available.
