Welcome to my new La Vida Yaya site. I’ve wanted to get back to writing about the things I love the most and here I am at 2:00 in the morning deciding now would be the perfect time to start again. I feel fortunate to have been able to make a life out of living and breathing art, history, and culture. It’s something I am passionate about and I would like to share some of my personal experiences with you.
My career in the arts thus far includes event planning, marketing, public relations, arts management, papel picado flower making, cleaning lady, greeter, artist wrangler, customer service, last-minute caterer, mic checker, driver, graphic designer, server, copy editor, bartender, standing for long periods of time in high heels, small talk expert, and a host of other duties no one tells you about until you’ve got the job in the arts.
I hope my adventures entertain you as much as they do me, in hindsight of course.
