Trailblazers: Meet The Creatives Series


This past November I facilitated a workshop at WordUp bookstore in Washington Heights, sponsored by the New York City Latina Writers Group: The Business of Art Workshop.

I have been the Program Director of the organization and this was my last year in the said position.  While creating this year programming, its founder, Alicia Anabel Santos,  encouraged me to be one of the facilitators and teach other creatives the necessary tools to balance being a creative and an entrepreneur.

I prepared for four months, gathering information and using my own experiences in areas of Legal Formation, Taxes, Social Media Engagement, Branding, Trademark, Copyright, creating Artist’s Statement, Bios and Knowing your Worth as an artist.

The workshop sold out within weeks and on November 17, 2018, ten of the 15 creatives that registered, showed up ready to learn and ask questions to set up in motion their respective creative/business plans.

Today, as a result of their trust in me and my skills, I am showcasing these 10 creatives through The Trailblazers brand created with Mariela Regalado.

This has been my mission during my entrepreneurial career, to use my platform and voice to showcase and share the work of those creatives who are doing extraordinary things in our communities, who inspire me and deserve the mention.

Beginning today, you will meet each one of these creatives and I encourage you to follow and support their work, even if it is only by reading these interviews.
