JHONN T. PUENTE
Since the inception of Sixx Degrees Media, Mr. Puente has been a grounding force. Among his many talents, his vast knowledge of film production greatly increased the company’s visibility as a leading production company. After losing a sibling and witnessing his mother struggle with this untimely loss, completing the Mothers of No Tomorrow documentary became a personal mission for Mr. Puente.
Mr. Starkes has dedicated the majority of his adult life fulfilling a self-imposed duty to perform what he deems as "community service". His method of "community service" is centered around the progressive development of young men through mentorship. Channeling the sage words of the honorable W.E.B DuBois, Starkes routinely advises these young men "to be ready to give up what you are for what you might become".
The collaborative effort with Sixx King to develop the "Mothers of No Tomorrow" movement perfectly paralleled with Starkes' commitment to "community service".
