We had the good fortune of connecting with Eduardo Iván Muñoz and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Eduardo Iván, what habits do you feel play an important role in your life?
Definitely time management, having a calendar, and working on my passion projects every single day are habits that have opened doors for me.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I’m a queer latinx creator. I am most proud of my latest work, my short play “Martha Me Tienes Harta.” My opera prima, my first work in Spanish. This short play won Best Play, Best Director, and Best Production at the 2019 Short + Sweet Festival – Hollywood Latino. I believe I got to where I am now by surrounding myself with people that are on the same wavelength as me. Having friends that share the same goals as me have been a major encouragement and inspiration in my life. It definitely hasn’t been easy. It has been a decade since I graduated from film school and one huge lesson that I’ve learned along the way is knowing that my mental health comes first. Always.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I would take my visiting friend to Venice Beach, Toi on Sunset for thai food, La Cita Bar for a night of drinks and dancing. On a Sunday morning we would go to drag brunch in West Hollywood, then walk around Melrose Ave, Arts District, Or Elysian Park. For dinner I would take my friend to Mexicali Taco or Korean bbq in Korea Town. On DAY 3 we would drive up the Hollywood Hills for the best views of the city and end the day at Ace Hotel for dinner and drinks at their rooftop bar. On Day 4 we could do a movie at one of our iconic theaters then go to Max Karaoke to end the night. Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure.
