VAL UCHENDU’S BIO
Val emigrated from Nigeria to United States to pursue his dream, but took a detour when he volunteered at a local hospital.

Val knew his dream was to connect with people in a different manner, a manner most natural to him, whether it was with his patients at the hospital or his audience on stage or behind the screen it was the same deep human connection that hears, sees and empathizes with whatever and whoever he’s in contact with.
Val took a detour, but he never lost sight of his dream, a dream that has become a commitment to himself, his late brother, family, patient, audience and community. Val founded Lostandprofoundtv LLC, an entertainment network and brand where people who have learned how turn their loss into something profound will share with others how they did it.

Val believes in living life and becoming a solution through giving and love. As the last child in a successful and educated family of six, now five; lostandprofoundtv was inspired by the death his late brother who shared Val’s dream of coming to America, but died in a car accident a month before his departure.

Newly single at 40 from a recent divorce, Val values companionship and spiritual understanding. He believes those two create lasting happiness.
In his words, “When we are one with our spirit, making decisions about love, business, creatives, and health becomes a simple process.” Val hopes to continue bringing crispiness, freshness, and profoundness to any platform he is on; be it TV, Film, Theater, On-Air, Creative writing or to his patients in the hospital and to lawmakers when he’s advocating for mental health reforms.
