I just read this interesting post on Jezebel that talked about Latinx Media and how big is that void in our communities; so, basically I’m just putting it out there. Let’s do something!

I know I’m surrounded by awesome people that could generate smart, fun and worthy content, so, let’s do it!

Echenme grito si tienen cualquier idea, yo estoy trabajando en varios proyectos tentativos y me encantaría contar con ustedes y sus propuestas.

Amonooos!

EAST 2016 – Clint Roth

You might know Clint Roth in one of his two facets: Musician as Big Jaw, or an Artist as himself ;P

I knew him through the music but ended up working a little bit more with his Art ❤

His style has been described as “Lowhighmiddlebrow Outsider Pop” (Don’t ask me, but totally haha), & one of the things I love about it is how versatile and just fun to see it is! It’s refreshing how simple, colorful and raw his pieces are. He’s used his art for Album covers, stickers, T-shirts and more, always translating perfectly into any medium.

  • If you have the EAST Catalog, it’s his piece the one that represents The Projecto 😀

He’ll be displaying his Art and chatting with us at Studio #111, hope you can make it!

Roru <3

This past week I had the pleasure of working/spending time with one of my favorite people, Rocio Diaz, aka “Roru”. If you don’t know her, she’s an awesome young professional who is THE face and voice of entrepreneurs in Latin America.
We met years ago while starting what I call a band incubator named Get your Gig. Long story short, I invited Roru to be part of it, and boy, was I lucky she said yes!
She brought a fresh take into our business, plus great bands, media (she had her own radio show in Monterrey), among many other qualities to the team.
After we decided to move to Austin and I put ‘GYG’ on hold for a bit, Roru and I stayed in touch, often getting involved in each other’s projects. This time, I will be helping her out with her very successful business, doing what I love, PR, Booking & Management  :D.
I’m writing about this because I’m just ecstatic I am to be part of a project that changes lives! (I know, art and music do too, but in this case the results aren’t as abstract…). Her work runs the gamut of all related to entrepreneurs, startups, business accelerators, etc, and she keeps a blog, roru.org in which she talks about these topics in a different, refreshing and down-to-earth way.  One example is that she’s been hired by big companies to go and teach their workers what an “Entrepreneurial Mindset” means, and how to apply it to their everyday life, or their regular jobs on a production line. This is a way of thinking that is revolutionizing the world as we speak, people understanding how to transform their everyday projects into an adventure filled with challenges and positive energy. Among her clients, you can add Mercedes Benz, Twitter, Google, Forbes Magazine, etc etc!
I’m fortunate to have received a consultation from her, and that she has helped me begin to plan according to this mindset. I had reached a point in my business in which I was ready for this helpful analysis and strategic planning.
Anyway, I just wanted to share with you a bit about Roru and her transformational work. :*
If you’re interested in her contact go to her website or write to me or  yosoy@roru.org we’d be happy to share some of this project with you!
