Tristan Wilds means business when heâ€™s on the small screenâ€”playing roles like 90210â€™s “Dixon” or “Michael” on The Wireâ€”but did you know the half-Dominican actor is an entrepreneur? The 22-year-old actor, who will appear next year in George Lucas‘ Tuskegee Airmen feature, Red Tails, Â helped start a family business, wineLife Wine Shop, located in his hometown of Staten Island, New York. Wilds sat down with BlackEnterprise.com to discuss what led to the decision to enter into business with family, the importance of learning from your siblings and why he looks up to his father.
Note: wineLife is under renovation and will reopen early next year.
