"The best time to plant a tree was twenty years ago. The second best time is today."


Hello, I'm Armando Bellmas. I manage digital strategy and community engagement for the Latin American Coalition, the largest Hispanic service, advocacy, and cultural agency in North Carolina.


I work on projects involving data and content management, community engagement, social media, fundraising and sustainability, and social entrepreneurship, specifically within Hispanic communities, the arts, and public media.


What else? I speak English and Spanish and love listening to, talking about, discovering, and sharing music. I independently produce a multicultural music, performing arts, and media thing called ecléctico, co-produced the immigrant rights documentary From the Back of the Line, labored lovingly over a music and culture blending blog, made photographs of people for love and money, and directed music, content, and programming at WNCW. I also graduated from FIU.


I'm originally from Miami and now live in Charlotte with my two awesome kids.


Get in touch with me at @abellmas or by email and let's plant a tree.
