Larry Cervarich

I decided to raise funds for this program and had a car wash that raised $500 for the homeless youth. I really didn’t know, at the time, where this would all lead to, but it got the attention of our local community. Year after year, it continued to touch the hearts of many individuals and corporations within the West Valley. Read more>>

Talk fashions started off as a Charity organization that I was trying to put together for young girls in Africa. I wanted a place or an organization that would mentor young girls and teaches them crafts such as sewing and designing, as well as teaching them the importance of education. Read more>>

My interest in documenting and telling stories is an extension of that. Showcasing my world in an authentic way through film has brought an interesting cast of people, places, and events into my life. Bringing stories to life is the alchemy I’m always seeking to master. Read more>>

I wanted my life and career to be fashion centered since GCC could not provide that. I toured The Art Institute of Phoenix and spoke with them regarding tuition. At that time it didn’t seem like a viable financial option, so my hopes of attending were quickly dashed. I then toured Paul Mitchell as being a hairdresser was another idea I kicked around.

Since middle school, I have been fascinated with photography and video making. I would shoot and edit photos and short videos on my iPod touch. The first time I used an actual camera was during my 8th grade class trip to New Orleans, and I borrowed my aunt’s small point and shoot. During that trip, I took so many photos I was in love!

I’ve networked and connected with plenty of other travel bloggers/photographers who have a hunger to travel and create too, and they are a source of inspiration. Garnering partnerships with great brands have also become big support. All these experiences I’ve come across always gets me to keep going and turning my hobby into a business (it’s still a hobby to me, let’s be real). Read more>>

Antonio Garcia

By being there, I knew I wanted to start my own type of school or tutoring crash course for the military and civilians to help them study before taking their oral and practical with a DME or Designated Mechanic’s Examiner. Nothing was offered at the school, so I took my chance, left there and started my own business. That is how America’s Best AMT Crash Courses came to be and where I am now. Read more>>

One of my favorite sayings is, “never have someone in your corner who doesn’t think you can win.” My coaches have always believed in my ability to win. I want everyone to have that same feeling in my gym. Only one month ago I have opened my own gym where all are welcome, and they will have someone in their corner who believes that they can win.

I started writing when I was little. We have cassette recordings of me at four years old singing little songs about the sun and the rain haha, but my parents bought me my first guitar when I was about ten, and I think that’s when I really fell in love with writing, and music in general. When I was twelve, I started posting original songs on YouTube. Read more>>

Scott P. ‘Doc’ Vaughn

When I saw the classic comic strip art of Alex Raymond (Flash Gordon creator) at a Disneyland art store, I knew that it was the type of thing I wanted to do. I drew and wrote with some small success through my twenties, but when I really wanted to buckle down, I started with a web-comic. My Amazon-bestselling buddy Kane Gilmour helped me write a 1940’s-set alien-invasion comic called WARBIRDS OF MARS that I still create in different iterations today. Read more>>
