I was raised in the Imperial Valley, CA and (after much struggle and contempt) has decided to call it home permanently. I have broadened my scope of work from financial and business management to research and development into the arts. I along with my partner David Varela, founder and director of the non- profit organization STARTS WITH ARTS Foundation are funding and organizing large community arts projects and community driven business for the sole reason of bringing arts into our community (which holds some of the lowest socioeconomic conditions in not only California, but our country) in hopes of making our environment a happier, healthier, and more wondrous place to live and thrive.
