The future is Immersive. Be part of our Immers3d Team!

Venessa Drai

I am Venessa Drai and I collaborate in the editing and production part of IMMERS3D MAGAZINE.

I was born in a lovely part of southern Spain, Malaga. Known as La Costa del Sol.

In 1990, we relocated to Miami, and then to Orlando in 1993, where I attended Dr. Phillips High School and where I met Kim Price. I graduated from Florida International University in N. Miami Beach with a B.A in journalism and political science in 2001.

Although my dream was to start my career as a  journalist, I ended up dedicating a good part of my life to the restaurant business. I owned three restaurants and I know now how hard it is to run this business.

When the idea for the magazine first came up, Kim and I loved the humanitarian aspect of it. We decided to combine our vocations and expertise in order to develop a one-of-a-kind, digital, enjoyable, and technologically advanced magazine for the twenty-first century. This is how Immers3dMagazine.com became an incredible goal.

With the idea of offering the 3D virtual tours, our viewers can get a 3D representation of any space and that is something they’d never imagined. However, it’s not only about a space, IMMERS3D MAGAZINE it’s also about their story.

I enjoy learning about new places, their food and their stories the most.  To me, these restaurants are not just businesses; they are families. Families with dreams and with struggles just like most of us. This is why we support local businesses.

My mission to Immers3Magazine.com is to promote local companies with enthusiasm, love and dedication.

Sincerely,

Venessa Drai

I am a Marketing collaborator at IMMERS3D MAGAZINE.

I was born and raised in Mexico City. I graduated in Tourism and Hotel Business Administration at the Mexican School of Tourism and Hospitality. One of the most prestigious Universities in that industry at that time.

After graduation I spent 4 years of my career working as a Coordinator of events and activities for High school and University Marching Bands across the USA.  With only a group of Tour Guides and escorts, I manage to coordinated the events of more than 120 marching bands.

In 1982 I received an invitation from Walt Disney World to be part of the opening of the San Ángel Inn restaurant in the Mexican Pavilion at EPCOT CENTER where I worked for several years.
That experience awakened in me a passion for the gastronomic career, but participating as Cultural Representative for Mexico was what I liked the most.
After this experience and while studying Hotel Management and Control and Real Estate at Valencia Community College, I continued in the gastronomic line working with the famous Italian restaurant Christinis and later as Bar Manager at Francesco’s Ristorante Italiano.
Then I made a career change by accepting the position with Vistana Resort as International Sales Executive in charge of off site sales in South and Central America.
Currently, apart from my participation as Partner / Collaborator in Immers3dMagazine.com, I continue to collaborate with Marriott and with Castell International and Vacatión Homes BNB.
My mission in Immers3d Magazine is to continue to promote local businesses into our community and to help expand the word out to our Orlando visitors. You have a business you want to share in our magazine? we need to talk! call me!
Sincerely,
Gabriel Castellanos
