Conversations with Cornelius ‘Cory’ Wiley

Today we’d like to introduce you to Cornelius ‘Cory’ Wiley.

Hi Cornelius ‘Cory’, thanks for joining us today. We’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
I was born in San Diego, CA. In 1997, I always grew up dancing and laughing and entertaining my family at a very young age and even getting into school plays and dances, eventually as I grew up I exercised my talents, starting in Drawing and then getting into Dance and taking actual classes, also Gaining an ear for music I played a couple instruments growing up (trombone, tuba, and snare drum) my knack for Arts continued to grow throughout Highschool continuing my Dancing courses and also theater, after graduating Highschool I eventually took on the Instagram app as my platform to create, writing / creating various sketches / skits and broadening my Love for film and acting, working with various Influencers, Actors and more this helped me continue my Steps Up in what I found in the art of Acting and Film work expanding from social media and getting into courses, being on Sets and being able to work on Films, Music Videos, Sitcoms etc., even learning my craft and building credentials behind the scenes because of the Love of the craft, I’ve been in Los Angeles for the past 2 going on 3 years and I won’t say it’s easy, but if you have the Love and passion for something, you take the yes’s and No’s like a Boss, I will continue to Grow and expand my talents and Love for film and TV as well as Arts in general and Will always love the feeling of putting an art piece together for others to enjoy.

Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
Some of the struggles I’d say are accepting the No’s, everyone loves a Yes, however the No’s are what molds you into more and elevates you, accepting the fact that there will be multiple No’s too but also knowing what is for you will be for you and those Yes’s feel that much sweeter.

Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your work?
I am an Actor/Producer, I am known for my skits I started with on Instagram and then branching off into film and television, working on multiple YouTube series, Music Videos, short films, feature films and Newly Sitcom work, also Associate and Co-Producer work as of recently on being a Cooking Show, I am most proud of my growth in the time I’ve been in my craft and the setting I’m in, I do know I have much more to learn and grow, I am just proud to be able to do what I love, what sets me apart from others is my aura, my frequency and the way I move in life, I bring a light into any room I step into.

What matters most to you? Why?
What matters most to me is God, my family and making sure I can provide more than enough for them one day, doing good and moving with good intent, and putting others in great positions to win as well.
