We had the good fortune of connecting with Tyree Exum and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Tyree, what’s your definition for success?
Success to me is having a vision, creating a plan, implementing the plan & sticking to it ultimately creating your own destiny. Just overall being at peace knowing you’re doing what you love to do!

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
What sets me apart from others is my personality & how comfortable my clients are when we are working together. Also my style, my skills, my service, the high quality of work I provide plays a big part as well. I’m where I am today because I remain Humble & Thankful always & never gave up so if you’re reading this & have a dream, go for it! Always stay positive & don’t let opinions stop you. Keep going!

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
First starting with a couple great food trucks in the area Beau & Kales, & The Dankery best in Durham in my opinion. I like hanging out with friends on Glenwood Ave in Raleigh. There are a lot of great spots out there to dine in & have fun as well. Hive Nightclub in Raleigh would definitely be a option too.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
Absolutely! I want to give recognition to my business partner/brother Buck Moore for all of his efforts & believing in me since day one pushing me to be great at what I do. Also Lamont Daniels @blk_assassin & Lamar Parks @playgroundrecords for the mentorship & knowledge over the years. I want thank all my clients, family & friends for the continuous support over the past 2-3 years & can’t forget Germôna Sharp for referring you guys to me for this interview!
