By day, I'm a Film Student (attending the top Art School in the world!), media entrepreneur, writer/director, photographer and founder of the Latina Lifestyle Bloggers Collective (#LLBLOG) and creative director for the First Annual #LLBLOGNotaConf Blogger Getaway.

I also have extensive PR and marketing experience working with leading fashion, entertainment and beauty brands. (My resume and experience can be viewed here.)

By night, I'm a self-proclaimed home chef, foodie, expert shopper and admirer of all things pretty. I live in West Los Angeles with my hubby and Boston Terrier, Princess Maya Candice. 

Why Cabeza de Coco or Coco Blog?
Cabeza de Coco is loosely translated into English as coconut head; but not in the physical sense. A coconut (or Coco) in the Latino culture is someone that is Latino by birth, but is viewed as having an Anglo or American way of life: Brown on the outside, white on the inside - like a coconut.

Most Latinos would consider being called a coconut offensive, while I find it quite comical. How can anyones lifestyle or life choices be pegged as being either brown or white? So instead of fighting it, I embraced it.

About Cabeza de Coco Blog:
Cabeza de Coco (or Coco Blog) is a lifestyle blog that features my personal observations on a number of topics, while embracing a lifestyle that is uniquely my own.
