With more than 18 years experience in the publishing business, his love and desire for helping others have led him to create a bilingual magazine in Northeast Florida in 2002. With his partner, Morris Communications Company, he launched Eco Latino, a magazine that serves as the voice for the Latino community in Northeast Florida.
Nearly a quarter million Hispanics are now living in northeast Florida from many diverse backgrounds and countries, and their lives are chronicled each month in the pages of Eco Latino.
The area's only bilingual publication features complete articles in Spanish with story summaries in English. Eco Latino is delivered free through more than 400 outlets in Duval, St. Johns, Flagler and Clay counties at places where Hispanics work, shop and pray.
Eco Latino provides readers with articles that help them realize that there is hope and they are surrounded by great opportunities. If, through Eco Latino, one person pursues his or her dream again, we can say, "Mission accomplished!"
The St. Augustine (Fla.) Record and The Florida Times-Union, both owned by Morris Publishing Group and its parent company Morris Communications, have partnered with Eco Latino to make the publication possible. The Record provides office space in its St. Augustine location, and staffs from both newspapers provide publishing expertise to help get the issues off the presses.
