Julian Azcary Montes was born in El Paso, TX and now resides in Wichita, KS as a champion of Latino leadership and an advocate for Latino artists and creatives for the sake of creating stronger, more prosperous communities. When he is not helping equip Latinos and other communities across the globe to lead more effectively, you’ll find him behind the camera sharing others’ stories through his own studio Azcary Creative, particularly those in highlighting members of diverse communities. When it comes time to relax, Julian spends his time with his wife Krissy and pup, Daphne strolling through art-dense areas of Wichita.

“What excites me most about NLI is the opportunity to connect with other artists and culture workers from across the nation and learn about their communities and how they’re hoping to make progress on the challenges they care most about.”
