Actor, author, and restaurateur Danny Trejo will discuss how he developed a prolific career in the entertainment industry with a hard-earned and atypical road to success. From imprisonment to helping troubled youth battle drug addictions, from acting to producing, and now on to restaurant ventures, Trejo’s name, face, and achievements are well recognized, but it is his role as a devoted father and an intervention counselor that bring him the most satisfaction.
Trejo has starred in dozens of films including Desperado, Heat, the From Dusk Til Dawn series, Con Air, Once Upon a Time in Mexico, and Machete. He’s had recurring roles on Sons of Anarchy, King of the Hill, Breaking Bad, among others. He has also starred in and voiced various video games like Call of Duty, Fallout, and Grand Theft Auto.
He shared his love of food with the world in the release of his first cookbook Trejo’s Tacos: Recipes and Stories from LA. His fearlessly honest memoir Trejo: My Life of Crime, Redemption, and Hollywood was released in July 2021.
