Letter from the Owner and Publisher

Ivan Miller, a.k.a, Imiko

Hello friends,

May has come and gone, and with it, Mother’s Day. In honor of my mother, I included a photo of us when I was very young. She always guided and protected me, and I’m so thankful for her presence and influence in my life and I miss her every day. May also brought great joy as we watched my daughter graduate from university. Afterwards, my wife and I found some time to escape on a cruise and I enjoyed doing what I love, spending time with my number one, traveling and photography.

I was honored to photograph the Urban Music Festival earlier this year. The sights and sounds were incredible and the atmosphere was unforgettable. The musicians’ passion jumps out at you from the stage. It’s a photographers dream come true to see that passion come through your printed work.

In this issue we bring you models, fashion, local talent, musicians, health and travel experts, a delicious recipe and more. Thank you to our readers, contributing writers, advertisers and the ES team. We love bringing people, cultures and communities together. Thanks for being apart of the ES journey.

Until next time,
