Jeff Baraka's Planet Boom!

global urban underground music arts & culture

About/Bio

I’m a creative, a communicator and a curator. I’m a broadcast and digital media personality and producer, currently working as a freelance entertainment news correspondent with a handful of affiliate outlets (see sidebar/desktop view). My professional experience and current activity also includes documentary filmmaking, voiceover (commercials; videogames) and lifestyle/culture marketing (live events; branded media).

My objective is to expand the work I’m already doing to larger platforms with greater visibility and impact. Goals within that are to continue working in non-fiction/unscripted, lifestyle & entertainment television with major studios, prodcos and networks; and to work on more media and experiential projects with major brands. See the materials section (in sidebar) and the work samples on the On-Camera pages. Contact me for serious partnership or casting consideration.

I migrated to my current work from an extensive background in urban, underground music, arts and culture. My independent Planet Boom! projects filter this experience and interest through my global curiosity. I’m still a semi-active mc/poet/beatmaker and graphic designer. I also co-manage Makers of Sense: a Chicago/Santiago, electro-world dance music duo and I’m an agent for Kayquarii: a professional, full service, HD recording studio.

My freelance media work usually airs or posts thru my affiliates before it appears here. It’s often more mainstream, pop-culture oriented than my independent work. This site serves as a place to archive and present the range of my work at my own pace.
