Carlos Alexander Murray
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Born in Gary, Indiana, May 13, 1973, Carlos Alexander Murray definitely became a product of his environment. Plagued with the ghost of three’s, Carlos has survived the passing of 3 siblings; an older brother, Torriano ‘MC Scoop’, and 2 younger sisters, Lakeesha and Cashmere. Being a native of these venomous streets of the Murder Capital, he spent his teenage years heavily engaging in going to church, selling drugs, pimping, and playing basketball.
Being a member of Roosevelt High School’s 1991 State-Championship, basketball team, a scholarship is what saves this young man’s life. Graduating from Central College in McPherson, Kansas, Carlos finishes his 3rd year attending Elmhurst College in Illinois.
Taking a turn of greatness or some may say a fall from success, Carlos A. Murray starts various businesses, along with his own record label which was first established by his older, deceased brother. As the music scene begins to take off, Carlos also stumbles on the set of the Big Screen which welcomes him into an acting career. Making his debut, Carlos co-stars in the motion picture ORIGINAL GANGSTERS which was filmed in Gary/East Chicago. He then began taking acting lessons at Act-One Studios located downtown Chicago while also modeling for BODY & BODY Swimwear.
Caught by a snag of the Federal Government, Mr. Murray’s life is put on pause with a 5 year sentence of incarceration. Here, he takes a stand to carve his future and set his own destiny. Here, he spends the majority of his hours writing. These writings thus became the voice and source of relaxation by all eager to read his creative thoughts. “My writings helped me get through it all as most had abandoned me…”
Now faced with a new start of life after being attracted to film and entertainment, Mr. Murray transfers his own visions into creative sparks of literature in which he currently has over 20 works-of-art completed ranging from Urban, Sci-fi, to Drama and Action. Carlos welcomes all to enter into his World of Imagination. Mr. Carlos Alexander Murray divides his time between Illiana (THE MIDWEST) and Atlanta, GA.
