Neema began his entertainment journey playing drums when he was 5 years old, and music has been an integral part of his life ever since. After leaving his hometown of Charlottesville, VA to attend Virginia Commonwealth University, he met several friends there that happened to share the same love for music as he did. They all loved it so much, they decided to give their textbooks a rest, hop on a 1976 Greyhound Detroit Diesel (named “Isabelle” that was a special upgraded model with screwdriver-solenoid starter!) and hit the road playing their music up and down the east coast!

A few years quickly went by, and Neema found his way back to Richmond, VA where he finished up his degree at VCU in Business Administration and got a job in the “real world.” After moving up the management ranks for over eight years, he discovered ECE! With his passion of music and entertainment still pumping strong through his veins, he knew that he had to knock on the door and find a way in. In the Fall of 2017, the stars aligned, and Neema joined the ECE team as an agent on the Touring Division.

When Neema’s not wearing his ECE hat, he is playing music with friends, watching live music, or running around town with his son and lovely wife.

Thanks for checking out my bio! I look forward to working with you and will do what it takes to ensure I find the right entertainment for your event! Whether that’s opening night at a Performing Arts Center, a Homecoming concert at your university, or an outdoor festival in your community, I will work with you every step along the way to make sure all the puzzle pieces fit just right and beautiful memories are made! Give me a shout and let’s make it happen!
