Hispanic Lifestyle Show notes and links to episode #155

Program Tease

Welcome to Hispanic Lifestyle, I’m your host Richard Sandoval and in this edition:

We take a look at concept cars at the Auto Show, and visit with Latino artists. Cars and Art are featured in this edition of Hispanic Lifestyle.

It was Hispanic Lifestyle’s first visit to an auto show and it was truly an eye opening experience.  As expected automakers focused on alternative energy vehicles and companys from around the world took this occasion to debut their concepts that just might make into production.

Cadillac

We first met with automobile designer Niki Smart who spoke to us about Cadillac’s Urban luxury concept car.

Mr. Smart spoke about the process and the various stages of getting a car into production.

Mercedes-Benz

Next we meet Larkin Hill who spoke about why Mercedes Benz was participating in the auto show.

Known as a luxuary vehicle manufacture, we asked Ms. Hill about Mercedes Benz product line and their customer base.

First up we meet with nationally known artist Ignacio Gomez who was born raised in East Los Angeles and we spoke with Hispanic Lifestyle about his career as a professional artist.

Recognized early on as very talented artist, Ignacio talked about becoming a professional.
