If you want more inspiration and laughter in your lives, Deeran Anderson-Hooper is your guy!
Entertainment Professional and Social Media Personality Deeran Anderson-Hooper is quickly becoming a household name as evidenced through his professional DJ/Emcee career, multiple television appearances on The Game Show Network, Facebook Watch ,Youtube Red, Afterbuzz TV, and a starring role on the E! Network reality show Revenge Body. Deeran’s latest endeavor is a self help book that takes an unconventional glimpse at Deeran’s journey from life in the projects of Detroit, Michigan to living a life he never imagined in Los Angeles, California titled Colorful Confessions: from Headache and Heartbreak to Healing and Happiness.
Born and raised by a single mother in Detroit, MI and the eldest of five, Deeran is no stranger to hard work. He has earned a Bachelor's degree in Business, become a certified international personal development coach, served as a United States Naval sailor and is a former radio host and field reporter for KNSJ 89.1FM (where his love of music and unmatched work ethic earned him the nickname “DJ Deeran”). Deeran has learned a lot throughout his life and business experiences and his authentic personality captivates those with whom he comes in contact. Word traveler and embracing cultures spanning from Japan to Italy, has led Deeran to the personal development space where he believes everyone needs accountability, motivation and community to succeed no matter where they are from or where they want to go.
Deeran has always believed that entertainment is a form of art and art is a tool that should be used to teach people not just entertain them. Through this philosophy he birthed Deeran Entertainment Company LLC (previously known as Hooper Thing LLC). Deeran Entertainment Company also known as D.E.C is an entertainment company that produces and houses various types of entertainment such as books, live performances and various visual/audio media. The intention for D.E.C. is to provide an experience that causes people to think inward and laugh outward through the art of entertainment.
Indeed, Deeran has come a long way in life – from his humble beginnings to an established multi-media personality and there is still so much of his story that has yet to unfold. He invites everyone to join him on the journey.
