About Me

My name is Bryan Soto, born and raised in the sunset state of Arizona, and I’m excited to share some of my dope experiences with you. You’ll typically find me on a road trip somewhere, debating what are the top food spots, jammin’ out to music, checking out the latest flick, or even posted up at a gallery admiring art. I’m also a first generation college graduate and my desire to learn never stops.

Growing up in a lower economic environment, my horizons were limited since I did not have anyone to look up to. My world only consisted of the tiny neighborhood I lived in and the kids I went to school with. It wasn’t until joining a diverse fraternity in college that really sparked interest for me in learning about people and their cultures. Once I realized the world was so much more bigger than el barrio that I grew up in, there was no stopping in wanting to explore as much as possible.

That’s when La Onda was born. “La Onda” first came about as an idea I picked up years ago from the classic film “Blood In Blood Out.” A scene in the movie describes La Onda as a form of destiny, a wave that nothing can stop. What I took from that quote is I have this mission to do whatever it takes to uplift people from all backgrounds. By creating this blog I plan to promote positivity and expose people to new things so that each reader can use this as a resource to add some flavor to their lives. La Onda is a movement, a way of thinking, and a way of life.
