New York, NY — Urban Latino Magazine which was founded in 1994 by Jorge Cano-Moreno and Rodrigo Salazar will be celebrating their 100th print issue Tuesday, March 27 at Rooftop 760 (760 8th Avenue at 47th Street, New York, NY 10036). Gracing the cover of their 100th issue cover personality is filmmaker Ulyssess Terrero.
As the first lifestyle and cultural publication geared to bicultural Latinos, Urban Latino has consistently focused on the coverage of the distinct journey of new generation Latinos and has earned its rightful place as the premier magazine for both male and female Latinos in the United States.
“I met Uly on the set of the film, Destination Unknown, almost twenty years ago and his motivation has never ceased. I’ve followed his career and I’ve always known he embodies what Urban Latino is all about – an idea that can become something big,” says Co-Founder, Jorge Cano-Moreno. Just like the humble beginnings of Urban Latino Magazine, Ulyssess Terrero had a long journey before he became the renowned filmmaker that he is today.
Terrero always had an eye for entertainment and began his career as an extra in the movie Juice. It was later when he teamed up with his brother, Jessy Terrero (Freelancers, Soul Plane), that they became casting directors for film projects. Ulyssess then went from casting to directing and producing, working with international artists like Enrique Iglesias, Ludacris, Mary J. Blige, 50 Cent, Nas, LL Cool J, Ciara, Sean Paul, and many more. Today he is the co-founder of Terrero Brothers Film, an innovative full service production company that produces music videos, cutting edge commercials, and documentaries for all markets. Ulyssess Terrero would like to not only push the boundaries of creativity, but also nurture new young filmmakers, helping them to find their voices and cultivate a unique vision.
The Urban Latino Magazine official 100th issue release event is presented by DEWAR’S® Blended Scotch Whisky and starts at 7:00pm. DEWAR’S – will host the exclusive soirée at Rooftop 760, situated in the heart of New York’s Time Square. Celebrities, tastemakers, and press will be expected for this night of celebration.
