I am a first generation Mexican-American. My family immigrated from Mexico in search of the American dream.
After high-school I joined the United States Marine Corps and served honorably until I decided to establish my roots in Texas and attend college. I attended and graduated from the University of North Texas while also working full-time.
I am happily married to my wife Louise, who is an immigrant of Ghana. We have two lovely kids, Zyanya and Alexander.
I am a small-business owner and the co-founder of Marpe Global, a global non-profit organization that focuses on expanding economic opportunities, access to education, and environmental awareness in West Africa.
