McCalla continues to utilize his contacts within the industry facilitating ventures with record and film companies for Playhouse as well as others. Since 2005, McCalla’s production company has been self-contained and provides a residual-based income, which has allowed him to venture out to explore other nonrelated industries.

With this structure, McCalla grew and managed a diverse national portfolio of real estate valued in excess of $12 Million Dollars.
