Gamechangers LIVE featuring Daniel Bouza
In 2009, Daniel Bouza was unhappily working in a construction and engineering firm when he decided to make a change and pursue his passion. He left his hometown of Miami to attend the Institute of Culinary Education in New York City with an eye toward employment at the famed Gotham Bar & Grille. Bouza got his wish and was soon working as a line cook at the famous New York spot but not before spending his first three months at the restaurant shelling chickpeas for no pay. Bouza then moved on to BLT Bar & Grill in the Financial District. It was there that he met Chef Rodelio Aglibot, A.K.A. The Food Buddha. Bouza began working as a consultant with the acclaimed toque and opened multiple restaurants around the world. Missing the kitchen, Bouza took the Head Chef job at The Ritz-Carlton Bachelor Gulch in Beaver Creek, Colorado. After a year working on the slopes of Beaver Creek Mountain, Bouza took a trip to Hawaii and was lured to stay by the beauty and magic of the island of Lana’i. During his tenure as Sous Chef at Nobu Lana’i, Bouza found a passion for Hawaiian-styled and Asian inspired foods such as the poke bowl and bao buns. Bouza found his way back to Miami and after some time working under Makoto Okuwa at the Chef’s upscale, Japanese namesake eatery in Bal Harbour, decided to concentrate on his dream project, PokéBao. Inspired by a tiny surf shack in Lana’i that served poké to guests lining around the block, PokéBao was born when Bouza had the idea to combine two delicious appetizers – poke bowls and bao buns – and serve them in a chef-driven, fast casual environment. Unfortunately, in March 2020, Chef Daniel Bouza decided to step down as Chef/Owner of PokéBao due to the Coronavirus Pandemic but he didn’t stop there. After many years working alongside with renowned chefs around the world and with the experienced he gained, he wanted to keep showcasing his talents without any limitations to the menu. He has continued to bring his flavor and talent into the private catering market creating menus specifically catered to private client’s palate. He now offers private caterings at clients’ home ranging from hand-made pasta to artfully designed traditional Japanese Omakase plates.

Gamechangers LIVE with Special Guest, Javi Perez
Gamechangers LIVE, hosted by Sergio Tigera (@speakerserg) is very proud to welcome Javi Perez. Javi's story is incredible, but even more incredible is the way he was able to bounce back from a life-changing tragedy. In April 2016, Perez, the popular principal at South Dade High School, was cheering his son among the players at their T-Ball game at Tamiami Park. The normal afternoon turned nightmarish within moments as a drunken driver plowed her SUV onto the field. As he shielded others, he was hit directly and pinned beneath the vehicle. Despite quick action by an off-duty police officer applying tourniquets to his bleeding legs and transport to the hospital, the outcome was far from certain. His wife, Maytee, family, and friends prayed for his life as the medical teams did everything they could. Intense surgeries, 100 blood transfusions, and an induced medical coma followed with the news about being unable to save his legs. The literal and figurative crippling reality was met with a determination to make his way back. Family, faith, and support of the community combined with his willingness to endure thousands of hours of physical therapy and constant meetings/treatments with many specialists. He spent two months in intensive care, then another two-and-a-half in rehabilitation. In adapting to prosthetic limbs, right side below the knee and left above, he will essentially be in physical therapy for the rest of his life. With as many as six sessions a day scheduled, he was often sapped of energy. “There were times I didn’t want to do it, but a little voice told me I couldn’t let all these people down – family, friends, members of the community.”
