Work With Me

Thank you for your interest in collaborating with me!

I’m passionate about traveling, whether it’s to a foreign place or exploring the cities I live in. I bring cities’ stories to the forefront while promoting the attractions, businesses, and people that make them unique. If there’s a great cause to get involved in, story that needs to be told, or an event that’s not to be missed — I’d love to help spread the word.

Recommendations & Testimonials:

I was very excited to host Luis at my branch of Chicago Public Library. I learned of Luis through his videos highlighting Chicago neighborhoods, specifically his Humboldt Park video, which is about one of the communities my branch serves. Luis gave an engaging presentation about the creation of his YouTube channel and all the work and research that goes into his videos. We learned a lot as he gave us some great insights into the history of the neighborhood and his own family’s connection to the area. Luis’ videos highlight Chicago in a positive light and spread the word about all the city’s great offerings and Luis is an excellent speaker and ambassador for the city!

 John Mangahas, Chicago Public Library North Pulaski Branch

Our historical society was looking for a fun and interesting speaker for our next program.  We reached out to Luis.  He agreed and we couldn’t be happier.  He talked about all aspects of his video making while sharing information he has learned about many of the Chicago neighborhoods.

 Rob Bitunjac, Clear-Ridge Historial Society

Luis visited our virtual class to speak with my students about the history of Chicago, Chicago tourism, and filmmaking. Luis has great energy and exudes a positivity that engages the students both live and through his videos. We’ve also been using his videos as supplementary pieces to our history of Chicago curriculum because they are informative and fun to watch with great visuals. We want to thank Luis for partnering with us and sharing the joy of Chicago with our students!
