WHO IS LAMON?
ACTOR · WRITER · PRODUCER
Lamon Archey grew up in “The Bay”. In fact, in San Mateo, California, on the same stomping grounds at Tom Brady (though much later). The Bay has churned out some really talented names like Tom Hanks, James Franco, Bruce Lee and… Oh yeah, Steve Jobs.
In high school, he was on the field most of the time, both football and baseball. But even that didn’t tick his radar for a future. And it’s a good thing he didn’t really have “plans” beyond high school notoriety. After graduating, he took a job doing carpentry, specifically doing hardwood floors. The only thing he was really sure he wanted were tattoos, he got his first of what would become many as quickly as he got his diploma.
So if you’re keeping score, that’s basketball, baseball, hardwood flooring and an affenity for tattoos.
To avoid feeling trapped in a “go no where” job, Lamon decided to feed his curiosity about what else was out in the world for him. He found his way down the 5 to Los Angeles and stayed with his Uncle while he tested the lay of the land.
