Early career

Long began his career in Los Angeles, California organizing and producing events at local nightclubs. After nearly a decade of organizing and publicizing these events, he arguably became one of Hollywood's most successful promoters, running celebrity fueled, high caliber events for various venues and clubs in Los Angeles and worldwide, including the House of Blues, The Hard Rock cafe, and others. During this time, Long also founded Live Music Showcase, a platform used by artists and music industry representatives to gain exposure and sign talent. Long has been quoted in saying that although this time in his life was very important, he had always wanted to do something with a more meaningful impact in the world. And after years of promoting talent and artists through Live Music Showcase, Long embarked to use his numerous connections in the entertainment industry toward more "philanthropic endeavors."

Fame & Philanthropy

Following the success of his previous events, Long executive produced another high-profile charity gala on the evening of the 86th Academy Awards. The event, known as Fame and Philanthropy, played host to various celebrities and various leaders in business, entertainment, and politics. Fame and Philanthropy featured a keynote speech from Academy Award winning director James Cameron, and was attended by actresses Charlize Theron and Halle Berry.
