Wanted to start the week off right by showing some appreciation for my hero, my old man. He started by mopping floors at the nation’s first ever Spanish radio station, but through hard work and a positive attitude worked his way to becoming the first ever nationally syndicated Latino television reporter in America. When the economy crashed in 2008, things got tough for my family for a little bit. We essentially lost our home, and as the media landscape continued to change my dad had trouble finding the same work that was once everywhere. Regardless of this, he wanted so deeply to give me a chance that he took out a loan and helped me buy my first cameras, lights and a computer for editing. For years we worked together producing videos for clients, just me and my dad. It wasn’t glamorous by any means but it was honest work and I still remember those projects so fondly. Love you dad. Thanks for giving me the world!
