Eugene Dean

Producer & Host

Eugene Dean is a life-long community activist who has applied his trouble-shooting skills in computer science to the physical infrastructure of social enterprise. Eugene uses the creative license of the media and entertainment industry to connect “public interest” with the “public square”. As the founder of the Emperial Group, Eugene created an umbrella concept of service and collective effort based on “meeting the needs of the people”. Throughout this process of trouble-shooting, Eugene has evolved as a trusted, reliable and accessible presence in the community. He has been sought after to represent numerous grassroots, national and international initiatives publicly and brings these same skill sets to the emerging requirements of the non- profit arena as the longest-serving member of Greenrock and current Chairman of the Executive Board. Eugene has developed this television series in response to loud cries from the community for more balance and inclusion from the media.  As a result, viewers can anticipate a program that encourages objective conversations, shares real-life experiences and provides tangible solutions that reflect the diversity present in communities all around the world.
