Former Detroiter Angelo Williams is touring with the company of "Elmo's Super Heroes" as Telly Monster.

Former Detroiter Angelo Williams has a degree in biochemistry; maybe as many stamps in his passport as Hillary Clinton; and a fuzzy purple alter ego.

Williams, 28, who graduated from Detroit’s High School of Arts, plays Telly Monster, one of the eponymous superheroes of “Sesame Street Live – Elmo’s Super Heroes.”

An “Army brat” born in Nuremberg, Germany, Williams was already well travelled before hitting Motown, Main Street and, finally, touring with Sesame Street. After graduating from high school, Williams did a year at Wayne State University before heading south to dance at Disney World in shows such as the Magic Kingdom’s Main Street Trolley Show and The Festival of the Lion King at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

He credits a lot of water and Gatorade with his survival. “It’s a lot of hard work, especially in the summer when it’s 98 degrees when you’re in a button-up shirt and vest,” Williams said.

While in Orlando, Fla., he had a visit from a friend and fellow dancer from the Freedom Dance Expressions Company, who was touring with "Dragon Tales Live." Like "Sesame Street Live," it was produced by the VEE Corp. He spent time with the "Dragon Tales" company while they were performing in Orlando, and was invited to audition.

He began his first tour with "Sesame Street Live" in 2005, as Big Bird in “Super Grover Ready for Action,” the original version of the recently updated “Elmo’s Super Heroes.”

Williams has toured with each of the three touring casts of "Sesame Street Live" for the last seven years, playing both Big Bird and Telly, who was Williams’ favorite as a kid.

“He’s very quirky and he’s very spastic, too. He can be very upbeat and then be down a little,” said Williams.

The three casts tour the East Coast, the West Coast and the theater circuit with different shows, and each has international stops. Williams said his most interesting stop was Singapore. The company spent New Year’s Eve in Mexico City, where the soundtrack for the show is in Spanish.

He says that Sesame Street is every bit as beloved around the world as it is here at home. Continued...

“The show offers so much for all ages,” said Williams, whose favorite song in the current show is a take on “One” from “A Chorus Line.” “It’s like we’re in a Broadway show.”

Between tours, Williams earned a dual degree in dance education and biochemistry from the University of Central Florida. His residence is in Newark, Del.

He likes to read, and do gymnastics and has participated on competition cheer teams. The last book he read was the final Harry Potter book, which he saved for after seeing the movie, because he didn’t want to be disappointed. This way, Williams’ reasons, “The book just totally fills in the blanks.”

Asked if he’s interested in the movie business, Williams laughed. "Not unless I hit the lottery.”

Williams has a 6-year-old nephew and a niece on the way. His nephew has seen “every show I’ve been in since he was born. I’m the cool uncle.”

The next move for the multitalented Williams “is to figure out a longterm goal.” He says he is “getting ready for family mode” now, and would like to either open a dance studio and teach or put his biochemistry degree to work in research, where he’s leaning toward pharmaceuticals.

But his most immediate plan is to hustle off to Buffalo for another opening and another show of "Sesame Street Live."

Proteonomix, Inc. (PROT) Brings in Additional Leadership in Order to Expand Management

Posted: February 7, 2012 at 8:01 am

MOUNTAINSIDE, NJ--(Marketwire -02/06/12)- PROTEONOMIX, INC. (OTC.BB: PROT.OB - News), a biotechnology company focused on developing therapeutics based upon the use of human cells and their derivatives, announced today that it has brought in new executive management as part of a new staffing effort to round out its executive committee.

Steven Byle joins Proteonomix as Chief Technology Officer. Mr. Byle brings over twenty years experience in technology development, business, development and technology licensing to the company. He joins us from his most recent position at Dockwise, where he was VP Technology and CTO, for this company having revenue exceeding $500M. Mr. Byle has been a member of the board and significant investor in Proteonomix for more than three years.

Mr. Byle shall assist with business development, licensing, business agreements, and the intellectual property portfolio. He shall further take on increasing duties in the operation of the day to day business. This will allow the CEO, Michael Cohen to increasingly focus his efforts towards the laboratory as Proteonomix enters human trials and expands its research efforts.

Mr. Byle states, "I have been waiting for the right moment when my business experience in business development and negotiation could add real value to Proteonomix. I have assisted in supporting the company financially for more than three years, but I feel that the company has now turned the page onto a new chapter and my efforts will best serve the company directly. It will be my foremost focus to secure opportunities for Proteonomix technology that involve significant capital investment -- as recognition of the value I perceive in this company -- and that also involve near term and sustained revenues going forward."

Mr. Byle continued, "I feel that the impending human trials for UMK-121 for liver disease are just the start for the company. There is a series of technologies we are developing which cover major health issues such as heart disease and possibly even diabetes, not to mention the line of cosmeceuticals. There are no guarantees of success and there is much to do, but I believe that the company now has a great start."

Also joining the Proteonomix family is Ms. Jaci Mandil, coming on board to lead the subsidiary Proteoderm, as CEO. Ms. Mandil brings thirteen years of experience as an executive in sales and marketing for several companies, including a fortune 500 company. Ms. Mandil's first task is to bring in funding to begin the production of the Proteoderm line. Included in the initial launch plans is to start distribution through a physician network and to seek overseas distribution partners.
