Sci Phoenix C.O.O./Founder/Creative Director
Sci Phoenix – is the Founder, Chief Operating Officer, & Creative Director of Four Elite Entertainment, LLC. He is responsible for the daily operations of the company, leading the communication design, interactive design and concept forward in any work assigned.
Sci Phoenix (born in Naples, Italy) – Is a jack of all trades with many skill sets which include, but not limited to, being a songwriter, emcee, music engineer, fashion designer, graphic designer, photographer & videographer among many other things. As a kid he has always shown a strong interest in anything and everything that was associated with and/or involved creative arts, visual special effects & other various media and entertainment mediums. From the moment he picked up his first VHS Camcorder at the age of 7 putting together short films and comedy skits, he knew that he was destined to be either in front of or behind a camera…it was his calling.
While acting, directing and filming are his true passion, in his early years of high school he became highly interested in skateboarding. He was soon sponsored by a local skate shop and rode for a team called D.S.S. (Down South Skaters). While currently riding for his skate team as an amateur skater pushing to go pro, he was then later introduced to hip hop, free styling and battle rap. This later propelled him into becoming a well known, seasoned battle emcee in which, at the time, he went under a different alias. After he perfected the art of battle rap and free styling as an emcee, he quickly evolved into the world of radio friendly music and started to produce more music catering to radio play and commercial rap. Thus his music career began and within his music career he’d opened up for such artists as Pac Div (Pacific Division), Travis Porter and many more. After having a few songs featured on the radio stations and later deciding that he didn't like the current direction that hip hop was heading towards, he once again moved forward with his true passion; film, photography and graphic design. In 2010, he established his own Photography Studio...In addition to more than 10+ years of graphic design and photography experience under his belt, he is also the founder of the clothing brand, Unified Mayhem.
