Johnny B.A.N.G. Reilly – Carved In Mayhem
Johnny B.A.N.G. Reilly, is a voice over artist, and co founder of OSU:
“After years of being asked to write letters and poems to express peoples feelings to their friends and loved ones, and talking on peoples behalf, to collect debts, and reunite people, and even convincing a desperate homeless girl to keep her baby, who is a healthy loved family member today, I drifted into the world of collecting words to affect feelings, provoke thought, and instigate discussion.”
