I don’t like to go by knowledge, I like to go by imagination.
— Orel De La Mota on going against the grain

An accomplished dancer, entrepreneur, influencer, and actor, Orel De La Mota shares how he's crafted a bountiful career in Hollywood. 

A skilled and talented actor who's been acting since he was a child in the Dominican Republic, was surrounded by older brothers and sisters in the entertainment industry.

He describes himself as a 'Man-Child' and during our talk you come to understand what he means by that. 

Inspired by the brilliant minds of Steve Jobs and the Wright Brothers, he knew he needed to go farther than his family had gone. 

A Mission To The Top
