Lamarr Wilson, a charismatic social media personality known as "The Unboxing Guy", has been captivating audiences since 2008 with his unique blend of humor, insight, and authenticity. With a social reach of over 3 million followers, Lamarr has carved out a niche as a trusted voice in the digital space making entertaining pop culture videos. His journey began in technology consulting, but he quickly discovered his true passion for educating and entertaining through the Internet. In 2011, he made the leap to full-time content creation, a decision that has since shaped his dynamic career.
As an accomplished host, Lamarr has lent his talents to a variety of platforms and shows. He's hosted "Socially Awkward" and "YouTube Weekly" for Mashable, shared his culinary insights on an LA restaurant review episode for Zagat, and even co-hosted the first episode of "Takei's Take" with George Takei, which won a Webby award. His hosting portfolio also includes work with Google, Microsoft/Xbox, and the "What's Trending" show, among others.
Before his rise to Internet fame, Lamarr worked in consumer tech sales and as a K-8 school Tech Coordinator and Consultant. He also ran a successful PC building/selling business from his home. Born and raised in Chicago, Illinois, Lamarr now calls Los Angeles, California home. His journey from tech sales to becoming the People's Voice Webby Award Winner in 2014, and his successful transition to short-form vertical video content, is a testament to his adaptability, creativity, and dedication to his craft. Lamarr uses a quote from Stan Lee about entertainment as inspiration for doing what he does daily in pop culture: “I used to be embarrassed because I was just a comic-book writer while other people were building bridges or going on to medical careers. And then I began to realize: Entertainment is one of the most important things in people’s lives. Without it, they might go off the deep end. I feel that if you’re able to entertain people, you’re doing a good thing.”
