If someone told me 20 years ago that I would end up working in the porn industry some day, I would have thought they were crazy. I grew up in a small town in Oregon and lived a fairly boring life. I didn’t have a girlfriend in high school; I didn’t even have sex until I was 19. During my sophomore year of high school I fell in love with photography and for 3 years that’s what I concentrated on. After graduating, I moved to Seattle to study photography at the Art Institute of Seattle. I had dreams of becoming a fashion photographer, it seemed like a very exciting life. 2 years later I graduated and decided to move to Los Angeles with my then girlfriend who was also an aspiring photographer. We had a choice of cities to start our careers, LA or New York; we felt that LA was the safer choice. I sometimes wonder where I would be in life if I had chosen to go to New York.
During my first few years in LA, I worked in a couple camera stores before moving on to being a photo assistant. I worked with various kinds of photographers and got to travel the country for work a little. I eventually ended up working full time for a big name advertising/fashion/celebrity photographer. It was a stressful job but it paid well & I got exposed to the world I had dreamed about working in. I learned about large-scale photo productions, met a lot of amazing people, and worked with some major companies and magazines. All good things must come to an end, and after a few years I decided it was time to move on and find other work. 6 months later I ended up working for a photographer on some shoots for Spearmint Rhino. On these photo shoots there were camera guys that shot solo videos of the girls, one of those cameramen was a porn Director named Andre Madness. I was looking for more work and Andre offered me a job as a grip on a feature he was directing for New Sensations. I guess I did a pretty good job, because I’ve worked with him ever since.
I have worked in the adult industry for almost 7 years. When I first started, I told Andre I just wanted to be a lighting guy, but things change, and new opportunities came around. I’ve done pretty much every job you can do on a set from being a Production Assistant to Producing. Once I even got to be a stunt cock for a scene with a very large companies contract girl. I perform, or at least one part of me performs in point-of-view blowjob movies that I direct, shoot and edit for Madness Pictures. I love doing POV movies; it’s a style of porn that I like to watch. I personally enjoy having that one on one experience with the female talent; I have no desire to do full sex scenes in front of the camera with a crew of people around. Over the past couple years; in addition to working in the industry, I’ve also been active on the political front. I was elected to the Free Speech Coalition Board of Directors; the FSC is the trade association for the adult entertainment industry. I’ve always been interested in politics, but based off my Twitter feed alone, I highly doubt I would ever be elected to office, so I’m happy to be involved with the FSC.
I’ve lived in my rent-controlled apartment for 16 years now; I live a pretty low-key lifestyle. I like going to movies, watching TV, eating out, and I’ve developed a little bit of an obsession for those Minions from Despicable Me. I refer to myself as “The Average Mo” because I consider myself to be an average guy that just happens to work in the porn industry. I don’t have lots of money, drive a fancy car, wear high-end clothes, or have a sculpted body. I’m the guy that would rather grab a drink at my local dive bar that hang out in the VIP area at a Hollywood club.
I originally created my blog to have a place to post pictures that had nudity since most social networking sites don’t allow it. With the help of Richard Avery and the fine people at Juliland.com I have transformed TheAverageMo.com into a place that highlights more of my talents. My passion will always be photography, but with my written blog posts and my show MORE w/Mo I hope to expand my horizons. My name is Mo Reese. I am The Average Mo, the average guy, with a not so average job.
