Previously, the show was audio-only, having been broadcasted on the popular website BlogTalkRadio.
His experience onstage, being trained by the students of the legendary Buster Keaton, Lee Strasberg and more has afforded him the opportunity of being on film with such Award-winning Actors such as Tom Hanks (From the Earth to the Moon), Al Pacino (Any Given Sunday) and popular Actor, Adam Sandler (Waterboy), to name a few.
Emi is an accomplished Writer, hailing from Tampa, Florida, where he has spent the majority of his life. Aside from being a Published Author (Sword of the Heart, Everwhere and Sword of the Spirit), Emilio has also been in the Entertainment Industry for well over 30 years as an Actor, Writer, Producer, Director and much more.
Emilio has been a Writer ever since he could put pencil (or pen) to paper. His earliest recollections of writing was when he first learned to write sentences and paragraphs in Elementary School, when Sister Rosemary (one of his earliest Creative Mentors), inspired him to write his heart onto the paper and to never give up. Later on in life, his High School English Teacher, Ms. Flowers, taught him to utilize the lessons he learned from reading and studying the masters (William Shakespeare, Tennyson, Frost, Melville, Verne, Shelley and lots more).
Performing in the local Spanish Lyric Theatre, directed by the legendary Rene Gonzalez, Emilio learned to integrate his creativity in every play and musical he did. He learned the ways of the Theatre, even how to write, direct and produce plays and went on to achieve a Bachelor's Degree in Theatre Arts from the University of South Florida.
After Graduation, Emilio went on to become a full-time Professional Actor, Writer and Producer for all manner of productions on stage, film and television.
His very first book, "Sword of the Heart", was published in 2003 and since then, he is tirelessly endeavoring to join the eschalon of the elite top selling Authors of the World.
