Mailon Rivera is an actor, producer, creative, designer, philanthropist, at-risk adult advocate, and founder of Urban Alchemy 360º.
Distinguished by his deep, resonant and mellifluous voice, Mailon has appeared in over 40+ top-rated television programs, deftly crossing genres (NCIS, The Shield,) appearing on BET, NBC and HBO to just about every television network in between. He has produced and appeared in independent films, voiced dozens of audio projects, booked national commercials and performed in several well received live theater works.
This New York native's journey however, began as a former foster child, welfare baby, street kid, lifelong B-Boy, yet civic-minded teen, who bloomed into an autodidactic polymath adult and influential Cultural Creative on a personal mission to develop and produce lasting opportunities for others through a new paradigm of business and philanthropy.
Never forgetting his roots and a promise made to his mentors, Mailon put his vision in motion. Initially fully self-funded with the help of donations from friends, "UA360" began as a private creative outlet to quietly help friends (and more than a few total strangers) achieve their life goals or assist in special projects. He accomplished this by gifting his resources, talents, skills and other small acts of "anonymous good" towards that end. This vision has since expanded by welcoming new partnerships and becoming a multi-faceted idea, creative and production house in multiple mediums, all committed to helping others create a purposeful life for themselves and for the future.
Mr. Rivera currently serves on the Board of Directors of the MAKE A FILM FOUNDATION (www.makafilmfoundation.org), a 501(c)3 non-profit dedicated to granting film wishes for children and teens living with life threating illnessess by teaming with film industry professionals and the GEORGE GREENSTEIN INSTITUTE aka "GGI" (www.greensteininstitute.com), an R&D lab and Applied Neuroscience think-tank based in Los Angeles, CA.
Aside from private client, design and development, on-camera and television work, Mr. Mailon Rivera's projects have included producing and co-hosting for WBAI-FM in NYC, developing the community-oriented original Live On-Stage series, 8 MILLION STORIES, Co-star and Executive Producer of the feature film LUCIANA, as well as other projects in various phases of development.
Mr. Rivera divides his time between Los Angeles, CA and Brooklyn, NY - a funky little planet where he feels comfortable in his skin.
