This New York City native's real journey however, began as a former foster child and welfare baby. He grew up a reluctant street kid, lifelong B-Boy, yet intensely civic-minded teen and eventually -- after a few distractions bloomed into an autodidactic, polymathic adult and influential Cultural Creative.
"UA360" originally began as a private creative outlet to deal with personal loss by helping friends (and more than a few complete strangers) achieve small life goals or assist behind the scenes on special projects. He began quietly gifting resources, talents, skills and other small acts of "anonymous good" towards bringing these ideas into reality.
Never forgetting his roots and the promises made to his mentors, elders and his late Uncle Tito, Mailon put his vision in motion to invest, develop and produce lasting opportunities for others through a new paradigm of socially conscious business development.
Initially fully self-funded with the help of donations from friends, this idealistic vision of a barefoot "Urban Alchemist" has since expanded to become a multi-faceted idea, creative and production house currently disrupting old philanthropy and business models.
Aside from private client, design and development, on-camera and television work, Mr. Rivera currently serves on the Board of Directors for the MAKE A FILM FOUNDATION, a 501(c)3 non-profit dedicated to granting film wishes to children and teens living with life threatening illnessess by teaming with film industry professionals, the Board of Directors for the GEORGE GREENSTEIN INSTITUTE, an R&D lab and Applied Neuroscience think-tank based in Los Angeles, CA., and is the current Co-Managing Director of THE COALITION 4 GLOBAL SUSTAINABILITY, in its mission to systematically eradicate generational poverty and its mindset by providing housing and training, as well as other projects in various phases of development.
