Born and raised in Queretaro, Mexico, my family moved to Oregon in the late 90s to Woodburn, Oregon. Aspiring to go to college, I enlisted with the U.S. Army National Guard in Oregon. After graduating from Western Oregon University with a B.A. The arts (theater, dance and music), I went to work for non-profits for ten years. A chef by trait, organizer by heart, thespian, artist, father of three, master gardener, master bee keeper, and now a BIPOC facilitator/trainer for RDI, serving Oregon, Washington, and Idaho. My work includes delivering business development trainings and leadership development in rural cities in Oregon.
