Valente graduated from San Diego State in 2010 majoring in Film. He has worked for Tower Talent the last 5 years helping young talent get representation in the arts through his guidance. Valente has helped launch the careers of numerous youth by leading some of the best students to talent competitions in Los Angeles, CA. Valente has also produced the last 4 fashion shows at the SD Kids Expo. Two of his greatest life passions are film and children. The company is all about showcasing kids’ talent and encouraging them to maximize their potential.
Valente’s passion for the company was ignited over a conversation with his mom when she said, “Just keep writing your stories, keep writing scripts for kids. Do what you have always done when you were young.” Once he followed the message he was determined to make his dream happen. His inspiration is the numerous kids that he has encountered over the course of his career who all share his love for film but need a place to nurture their talent. His motivation has been with all students he has work with in the past. Thus Children’s Film Academy was born.
