The Holyfield Go Fund me
My name is Ramel Wallace and I was born and raised in San Diego California I am an artist, a speaker and a business owner. My great grandmother had a house in Barrio Logan in the 60's so my mother grew up in the neighborhood. By chance my father ended up living in the same house on Julian and Sampson as a young adult. I remember playing in the front yard. Barrio Logan is a part of my family lineage and it feels very special to be here as I become an adult.
Forward to now, Barrio Logan is where I have been running my business since 2014 (a creative space called thChrch) since 2014. At the same time I started The Holyfield a record label that could capture the culture of my city and experience. San Diego is abundent in talent and I wanted to find a way to mix the music with education, art & technology. Looking back on my facebook memories it was July 1st 2014 when we opened our doors to the public. 3 years later In 2017 I am in a critical decision making point. In order to maintain The Holyfield in the space at 2185 Logan Avenue. I must make a leap of faith and put a full time commitment to my dream of running The Holyfield (Holyfield Recording) out of 2185 Logan avenue. Moments of clarity have continued to happen that remind me that this is my destiny in life. For example being suspended from my job in the same week that I thought of quiting. But I guest I think about quiting my day job everyday.
