Morris W. O'Kelly is the son of two music educators and competent on 10 musical instruments. After graduation from Georgetown University, he immediately went to work for Capitol Records and enjoyed an 11-year stint in the music industry, working for such companies as the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, NARAS (the Grammys), and numerous other record labels.
In addition, he began branching out into entertainment journalism, scribing for newspapers, magazines, and other periodicals. After a number of critically acclaimed Op/Ed pieces in the Los Angeles Times, he decided to more seriously pursue writing.
In the intervening years, he and his work have appeared in The New York Times, on CNN, Good Morning America, The Jim Rome Show and American Top 40 with Ryan Seacrest. His syndicated column, The Mo'Kelly Report can be found in a number of print and online destinations nationally.
When O’Kelly is not stringing sinewy, didactic words and phrases together, he teaches the martial art of Hapkido as a 3rd degree black belt. Feel free to drop him a line at firstname.lastname@example.org.
