Lemond "IMAG" Brown discovered that by using music and the arts, he can tap into the passion of young people to teach them science, technology, engineering and math. STEM is the future, but our antiquated education system is failing our kids. Lemond argues that we need to rethink how we teach and ask the youth how *they* want to learn.

Lemond "IMAG" Brown continues to make Authentic Hip Hop Soul music that the whole family can enjoy. Born in Washington, D.C., IMAG is eclectic by nature, mainly the reason he is an Educator, producer, songwriter, and Engineer. Engaging in music has been a passion of IMAG for over 15 years, and has been a gift he has shared with people in many different places from South Africa to Australia. In 2012 he founded the Swaliga Foundation that continues to use creative outlets to steer at-risk youth toward future success.
