"I always loved Entertainment, playing roles in musicals with my siblings in my parents living room also, recording myself while hosting my own radio and TV show, years went by and back in 2010, I decided to pack in just 1 suitcase all my dreams and goals and arrived to the City of Orlando, but it was not until 2015 where I was able to go back to school after getting my Bachelors at Law in Caracas, to get my degree in what I feel most passionate about; earning my degree in Entertainment Business was in my bucket list. I am now happy to have a Master of Arts in New Media Journalism.
Working at The Walt Disney Company, and hosting "Artistic Spot" Podcast are just wonderful experiences of a career that I love, it is only the beginning. As I always say, we are all actors of our movies, singers of our musicals and writers of our books and I am writing my story in this adventure called life".

JJ Gonzalez Acosta

"I am originally from Valencia, Venezuela. I started my artistic journey back in 1990, when I was just 5 years old; always learning beautiful techniques from my mother and my aunts who are also artists.
When I grew up I decided to pursue my career in arts when I was just 8 years old and I studied Art in the School of Fine Arts in Valencia. 
Growing up my passion for arts grew more and more, I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Art Education and a Master's in  Management in my hometown, Valencia. 
One day I decided to pursue my American Dream and arrived in the City of Orlando in 2017 where I am currently developing an art project in which I teach different art techniques and origami to adults and children of all ages in order to promote their talents and help them discover their artist within".
