Esteban Villanueva - Publisher

Co-Publisher, Esteban Villanueva, grew up in San Diego, California.

In San Diego, Esteban attended Francis Parker School for grade school and The Bishop's School for high school. At both schools, he was known as Steven Villanueva or Steve Villanueva because many of his classmates had a hard time pronouncing "Esteban"!

Esteban then went on to attend Dartmouth College in New Hampshire where he received his Bachelor of Science degree in Biology from this prestigious Ivy League Institution.

After college, Esteban moved to Los Angeles to attend Pepperdine School of Law where he focused on Entertainment Law. During his studies, he had multiple internships at law firms specializing in entertainment law, as well as internships at record labels such as American Recordings, where he worked in the A&R Department for famed record producer Rick Rubin.

After law school, Esteban became the Director of Business and Legal Affairs for a music production company, recording studio and music publishing company. Projects he directed during that time won Grammy Awards including Fabulosos Cadillacs, "Fabulosos Calavera", Best Rock in Spanish 1997, Ricky Martin "Vuelve", Best Latin Pop 1998 and Carlos Santana "Supernatural" with 12 Grammy Awards including Album of the Year.

After several years in the music industry, Esteban returned to San Diego and continued to run international businesses focusing on trade and import/export with Mexico and Latin America.

Danitza Villanueva

Danitza Villanueva - Publisher

Danitza Villanueva is a self-motivated and dedicated businesswoman. Born in San Diego, she spent part of her youth with her family in Tijuana and grew up on both sides of the border. She has transferred her unique insight of cross-border culture, trends and philanthropy to her business and community interests.

Danitza attended high school at The Academy of Our Lady of Peace and became the first woman from her family to graduate from college. She has two degrees, one from Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in Fashion Marketing, and a second from San Diego Christian College in Communications.

Danitza publishes two successful magazines including Giving Back Magazine, monthly focuses on charities, culture and arts for the San Diego and Tijuana region. Danitza works with the community by supporting and promoting fundraising events for local charities. Part of her focus with the magazine is to shatter the stereotypical image many have of Mexico. The second publication is a pet’s life magazine, quarterly which focuses on the lives of San Diego pets and philanthropic groups that make their lives better.

In 2008, Danitza and her magazines were invited by the Office of Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger to attend the 26th Annual Border Governors Conference in Los Angeles for her positive impact in the community and the positive image of Hispanics in the region.

In 2010, Danitza was elected the youngest ever member of the Board of Directors of the San Diego Opera. Through her leadership, the Opera performed the world’s first Mariachi opera, Cruzar la Cara de la Luna with Mariachi Vargas Tecalitlán, to sold-out houses.

In 2011, she was chosen to participate in HOPE Leadership Institute, a select group of Latina leaders in the State of California. Through the HOPE Leadership Institute, Danitza traveled to Washington D.C. to meet with members of Congress and of the Senate to advocate for Hispanics.

Danitza was chosen by Access to Independence in 2012, an organization that provides services to people with disabilities, as an Everyday Hero for her dedication in making a difference in the disabled community of San Diego.

Through her partnership with Ronald McDonald House Charities of San Diego, she initiated and chaired the first outreach program for the Hispanic philanthropic community. This annual event, first organized in 2013, has been extremely successful and Danitza chaired for 5 years.

In 2014, Danitza joined the Board of Directors for HOPE, a statewide organization committed to ensuring political and economic parity for Latinas through leadership, advocacy and education to benefit all communities and the status of women. In 2015, she was elected to be the Secretary.

Also, in 2015, Danitza was honored by Girl Scouts San Diego as a Community Partner for her outstanding support of Girl Scouting in the region.

In 2017 and 2018, Danitza was honored to Co-Chair the OLP Women’s Symposium and in 2017 she joined the OLP Board of Directors.

Danitza and her husband, Esteban, enjoy the region and all that it has to offer and can be often found horse back riding or hiking the regional parks with their pet dog or visiting many of the local museums.
