WELCOME / HENRY RAVELO
Having excelled in both the performance as well as the business side of the Industry, Henry Ravelo offers a vital perspective for anyone wanting to excel in the world of Entertainment.
He originally made a name for himself as an actor at a time when there were even fewer opportunities for Asians in Entertainment and People of Color. Overcoming the odds, he worked professionally in numerous Theatre, TV and Film projects that include the original Broadway, 1st National and Canadian premiere productions of MISS SAIGON, national tours of SOUTH PACIFIC with Robert Goulet and ANYTHING GOES with Mitzi Gaynor. On TV, he pleaded with Brooke on ALL MY CHILDREN, plotted with Asa on ONE LIFE TO LIVE, ran the Spaulding yacht on THE GUIDING LIGHT, photographed Laura on LOVING and kidnapped the wrong child on THE EQUALIZER on CBS. On Film, he played Alberto on MASQUERADE with Rob Lowe but ended up on the cutting room floor when he played a ballet dancer on CARLITO'S WAY with Al Pacino.
When the AIDS crisis hit in the 80's, he began producing fundraisers to help the victims.
His move to Management started at the height of High Fashion; serving on the Men's Board of the agency that created the 1st male supermodel. With his background in Acting, he quickly rose to Entertainment Director; becoming the go-to guy to get models cast in roles for series television. He personally coached each client to facilitate their career advancement, which in turn, opened doors for him to coach award-winning actors and nominees. An intriguing fact: Henry also served as Audition Coach for the winners of Miss Universe, Miss USA & Miss Teen USA under the ownership of the now 45th president of the United States.
Today, he continues to gain history-making strides by tirelessly working to bring commercial success for LGBTQ+ artists, allies and influencers.
