Akeem first fell in love with acting when he was a child studying at Linda Vista Elementary school in Pasadena, California, performing in multiple school productions. The excitement and reactions that he gained through his onstage talent seemed to put a smile on people's faces. Becoming any character that he wanted to be, allowed Akeem to escape from his everyday life.
Later on, he attended John Marshall Fundamental High School in Pasadena, California, receiving his High School Diploma in June 2007. His parents always wanted him to have a solid educational background, so once he finished graduating high school, he took some college courses at Pasadena City College to pursue a business degree and become a financial banker.
On one fateful day, he was seemingly asked by a loyal customer from his previous daytime job if he was an actor. The customer thought that he had this huge charismatic personality that just radiated positive energy. Ever since that day, Akeem made the decision to finally pursue acting as his career.
He studied at Columbia College of Hollywood productions, where he was involved in two lead roles. In the film, "It's All About the Money," he played Jim, a lowlife who gets killed over never paying back his debts. In "What a Wonderful World," he played Frank Simmons, who was a homeless man who got a second chance at life.
He then moved on to study at the University of Southern California, where he booked leading roles in the film "Spotted" as Todd, the remake of "Born Fourth of July," where Akeem played Jerry Levin's character, Steve Boyer. At the University of California, Los Angeles, he booked leading roles in the films "Initiation" as the BKE leader Brad, "The Old College Try" as an inventor named Anthony, and "Adagio" as a gym instructor named Marcus.
In the New York Film Academy, Akeem was featured in the films "The Kidnap" as one of the principal kidnappers, and in the film "Fine Line" as Joe, a washed-up film writer. Both films were screened with Warner Brothers and garnered a lot of praise. The film "Fine Line" did so well that other members of the New York Film Academy asked the director about Akeem Mair, recognizing his natural talent in acting.
