Wali Collins is the founder and CEO of Y’NEVANO Inc. He was born in Springfield, Massachusetts. The youngest of 3 children and the only boy, he had a lot of ambition and imagination as a child. Growing up he loved to paint pictures and would sell his work to family and friends. At the age of 12 Wali organized the first dog competition in his neighborhood. A love for music led to Wali learning to play the drums and becoming the youngest member of the New England Jazz Society. He studied architectural technology in college and was content on designing buildings until the urge to be a standup comedian came along.
