Ben Hemingway I am a 23 year old Accounting major trying to create an impacting legacy like my Father's. Novice in the field of writing, experienced in the field of talking with a firm belief in Christianity, hard work, Kanye West being a genius, and Kobe Bryant being the GOAT. I was private school educated all of my scholastic life up until college, but I have learned more from my experiences on the east side of Cleveland than I ever would at a christian academy. I inspire to innovate, blog, and sing/dance. When I am not working to help the Cavs win championships, The Browns and The Indians win games, I work in the accounting department of one of Ohio's largest insurance providers. Being a black man in America is a full time job in itself, but the challenges and experiences I ( and every black man and women) go through is why The Talented 6 blog was created. Follow and learn from my experiences through the things I say and write.

Gabe Hemingway What do we really learn about someone that they actually tell you?  You get some knowledge about how they grew up, what school they attended. If you all know some of the same people. Yes,  that may help you form an opinion, or just be some meaningless information you will soon forget about them. But, what I believe is that you learn more about someone from the stories they share or the experiences that you have with them. If you're really lucky, you'll share a bond with these people forever. My purpose is not just for you to know a little information “about me” but to share my story with. To allow you to take this  journey with me through these blog post. Really dive into what is to be a young black man, who didn't finish college, someone who serves our armed forces, and sees the world from a slightly different perspective. Whether it be about my career military or civilian, my personal life and how I move through relationship with people on those undisclosed Saturday's. I am 1/6 of the Talented 6.

Ryan Rosenthal I'm a married father of two, Cleveland native. I grew up in Warrensville Heights, an inner ring suburb of Cleveland and a predominantly African American community. I graduated from Orange High School, located in a very affluent Jewish community. Yes, my last name is of Jewish tradition but no I am not a Jewish (I’m of Christian faith). My two childhood experiences with these two vastly different communities framed my outlook going into college and drove much of my ambition through my early 20s. Through my experiences in life I grew an appreciation for culture and learning how communities function and sustain. Professionally: I’m in Healthcare finance. Outside of work, I also have interest in Real Estate and possible small business investments.

Will Warren “Why not live with the drive to inspire?”- Wale- 600 Benz I’m a 5th-generation east side Cleveland resident and an unapologetic, die-hard Cleveland sports fan. I’m the product of a single-parent household and an old-school upbringing that has molded me into the man and the father I am today. I believe in God, but I believe even more in my dreams and myself. I wake up everyday with a smile on face, because a positive outlook is a major key (cue the DJ Khaled ad-libs.) I carry a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree, but I’ve yet to stop educating myself and learning more about the world around me. A wise man once told me that the game is to be sold, not to be told, so you’d be wise to appreciate this free game being dropped in this blog. The Talented 6 is a collective effort by men I consider my brothers, and blood couldn’t make us closer. So which brother am I? I’m the tall one in the back making everyone laugh till their sides hurt, or making them scratch their heads deep in thought. My hope is that this blog will be the blueprint to your eventual success, and a road-map for your journey to greatness. Because I’d rather die enormous than live dormant, and that’s word to JAY Z’s first album Reasonable Doubt; can I live?
