Manuel Zarate


Playwright, photographer, entrepreneur, businessman, dancer, poet, lobbyist, director -  all descriptors of a man who has bridged the gap between the arts and the business world. Dabbling into anything that peaks his interest, Manuel Zarate is the founder and president of HBMG Inc., he's the benefactor behind the HBMG Foundation, the playwright of an extraordinary five-play series titled "Love Sonatas," and an honored member of the Stage Directors and Choreographers Society. He's funded multi-million dollar arts experiments combining business and creativity, he created the first electronic document management program (pre-dating and mentoring Microsoft, SharePoint and others), and he thrives on thinking, solving, and brainstorming problems, challenges, solutions, and future forecasting.
