About Me: 
My name is Dana Price, known to most as Dana Dane. Currently I am a graduate student at Full Sail University in pursuit of my Master’s Degree in Business Entertainment. I am the oldest of three so I was born a leader. My mother told me that while she was pregnant with me she would tap the first part of the chorus of the song “Shave And a Haircut” on her stomach and every time, in rhythm and on queue, I would kick back the next part. When I came into this world I was diagnosed with an extreme case of jaundice, which required medical observation before I could be released to go home with my parents. These stories from my earliest stage of life speak directly to who I am; I am a fighter and a lover of music. I believe in truth and love and my overall views in life stem from my Christian upbringing to do what is right in all situations or at least strive to do and be better with every opportunity presented.
Hobbies: 
writing, reading, listening to music and spending time with my only nephew
Favorite Bands: 
Lauryn Hill, Mary J. Blige, Chrisett Michelle, Anthony Hamilton, Pharrell, Eminem, Jill Scott, Taurus Riley, Bob Marley, Barres Hamond, Damien Marley, I-Octane, Ty Tribet, and on...and on...and on

This is a post written for my Mastery course in the Business Entertainment Master's program at Full Sail University. I hope it inspires others and gets me connected to the channels needed along my path:

“My Mastery Journey”
In my introduction I mentioned a couple of stories about the very beginning of my life. I tend to think of my Mastery journey starting the moment I was born. I can recall as a child watching music based movies with an intense focus ever since seeing my first, “Purple Rain”, in the theater. Even now I can hear songs from old movies such as Breakin’, “Juice”, “Beat Street”, “Krush Groove” and the like, and know the exact part of the movie the song played on. “Krush Grove” is still an inspiring movie, depicting the mastery journey of Def Jam record label creator and mogul Russell Simons. Music has always played a significant role in my life and moves my soul; to live and work in the promotion and creation of it is a dream I continue to chase. My passion for music has only grown as I continue to live, listen and learn more about it. I have come to Full Sail University with the goal of obtaining knowledge about the business behind music and information necessary to aid in the development of my own artist management company. I hope to continue on my career path toward a future that allows me to reach, help, and make a difference in the lives of other music lovers.
