Hey y’all, thanks for visiting us! We are Juan and Anjelica, founders of this blog and website since 2010.
We are originally from the Great State of Texas and now also live part time in Northwest Arkansas. Anjelica and I met and got married in Houston – (there’s a story there too, if you have an extra minute). Both of us are first generation Mexican-Americans with family roots in different parts of San Luis Potosi, Mexico, where we each spent a lot of our summers growing up. Anjelica’s family is from Bocas. Mine is from Cerritos.
Our son Edgar has grow up with his parents creating online content as a hobby, and then as a career. He’s a great young man with a lot of passion and compassion. As parents we have done our best to instill in him a deep sense of pride and identity in his culture and heritage.
What started out as a hobby has now become our way of life – with Anjelica and I founding two marketing and communications agencies (Big Oak Tree Media and Market Street Consultants), several podcasts, and developing an agency team just as committed as we are to elevating diverse voices.
Feel free to reach out to us anytime. You can always reach me via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
