Meet Tavon Brooks of SmoothLight Productions

Today we’d like to introduce you to Tavon Brooks.

Hi Tavon, please kick things off for us with an introduction to yourself and your story.
There are so many themes and components that contribute to my beginning, so… I’ll start at the point where I returned back to America from living abroad, Israel for more than 25 plus years. After witnessing the birth of my son, it was such an experience I couldn’t leave. My first plan was to stay here for a month and go back to Israel to finish my education than have my family move to Israel. That didn’t work!

My first job ever in America was Enterprise Rent a Car. Three years into the job, I was promoted to team leader. Due to a car accident, I had to leave Enterprise and all I could think about was what next. Not having a clue what to do next a friend suggested I start my own business, “SmoothLight Productions!”. A combination of everything I’m passionate about. Hospitality, music, food, and event planning.

I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey have been a fairly smooth road?
The saying do what you love and you’ll never work a day in your life, I’m a living testimony, and I’m extremely thankful for the humble beginnings. It was not easy at all. There were many challenges. I was fired from my morning temp job and the restaurant investment I was involved in was not doing any better. People needed service and had no budget, at least not for the service crew. I lost everything. The downtown loft living, the nice car, and the pretty woman. Some of the most difficult experiences that keeps me motivated is the day I had to sleep in the car with my son. Another one my partner and I had to sleep on the floor. I vowed to never let that happen again.

We’ve been impressed with SmoothLight Productions LLC., but for folks who might not be as familiar, what can you share with them about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
We are a full-service event management company. We have an exceptional reputation throughout the St. Louis hospitality and event planning industry. We cater to the corporate arena but we are skilled in all types of events. Our model is “You dream it, We created it!
