Avery "MsArtistry" Watson former Executive Assistant to the VP of Operations at Combs Enterprise/Bad Boy Ent. Avery aka MsArtistry was born on July 6th, 1989, in the Bronx, NY, and graduated from Bronx Community College with an Associate’s Degree in Media Arts and BA Degree from Lehman College in 2013.

 

During her sophomore year, she took work cooperative classes for an internship at the BET Networks Talent department. This opportunity opened doors for Avery’s interests: the music, media, entertainment, and television industry. Understanding how all industries function together was Avery’s excitement about gaining more experience in this field. Avery worked the BET Awards in 2010 as a talent escort and continued to work as a red carpet escort in 2013.

 

In addition, she interned and joined organizations such as W.E.E.N, ASCAP, Sony Music/RCA Records, MBK Entertainment, Sony Music/RED Distribution, and Sean Combs Enterprise. Avery simultaneously earned her B.A degree in Multi-Media Communications/Television and Dance at Lehman College in 2013. Shortly after, Avery interviewed for the Renaissance Youth Center and was handpicked by CEO Bervin Harris to be his Executive Assist in Music With a Message Band.

 

Bervin Harris and Avery Watson both shared a similar passion for giving back to their community’s passion for arts, music, and dance. She is completing her vision by being able to work at a nonprofit allowing her to showcase her previous experiences. To her credit, Avery has assisted with Sean Combs Enterprise with a philanthropic initiative led by Sean “Diddy” Combs. Avery’s journey has come full circle having begun at 12 yr old as a part of Daddy’s House Charity tutoring and literature program with mentorship by Sister Souljah. So far in Avery’s career, she has worked in many departments such as marketing, lifestyle marketing, talent development, product management, A & R, and Radio Promotions.

 

Avery has now expanded her reach by booking the “Music With A Message” Band for McDonald’s Grand Opening in Harlem, NY 2013. Currently, Avery Watson is a publicist for Ruff Ryder's record label the home of EVE, DMX, Swizz Beatz, The Lox, and Drag-on.
