I was born at Los Alamos Medical Center on November 28, 1988. Ironically, I shared my birthday with my paternal grandfather and a cousin. I would then spend the next 10 years living at the La Mesa Trailer Park on North Mesa, and going to school at Barranca Mesa Elementary School.
In 1998, my family moved to the Espanola Valley. However, I continued to go to school in Los Alamos and spent my summers at the Mesa Public Library and the Youth Activity Center. In 2006, I got my first job at Baskin Robbins. I graduated from Los Alamos High School in June of 2007. Soon after that, I packed my bags to try a life in Los Angeles.
I returned home in 2008 after deciding that I needed to further my education. Realizing I could not afford to attend the University of New Mexico main campus or any other four year colleges, I turned to UNM-LA for help. It was there that not only continued my education, but realized my passion for public service. I served on the Student Government and as President of the Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) Honor Society. In 2009, I began my career at Los Alamos National Laboratory as a Student Intern for the Construction Estimating group. I graduated from UNM-LA with my Associates in Pre-Business Administration in 2011, and was able to continue with pursuing my Bachelor's at UNM main campus.
At UNM, I continued to serve in PTK as the Northern District Vice-President. In 2012, I joined Dr. Kathleen Ramsay and others to form Land of Enchantment Wildlife Foundation (LEWF), and I was unanimously elected as its Chairman. I then joined the Delta Sigma Pi Professional Business Fraternity. I continued to take a full time schedule of classes while also working part time for Los Alamos National Laboratory. In 2013, I graduated from the Anderson School of Business in Operations Management.
Upon obtaining my Bachelor's Degree I returned to Los Alamos, at which time I began to set the foundation for my life and career in Los Alamos by renting my first apartment. I spent the next two years working and saving to be able to purchase my first home in 2015.
During all this time, I was determined to become more active in the community. I began by joining the Republican Party of Los Alamos. I soon ran for the UNM-LA Advisory Board to give my time and talents back to the school I loved. In 2015, I was then appointed to the Environmental Sustainability Board. Soon, I would join Leadership Los Alamos, and graduated in 2016 with being awarded "Most Likely to Run for County Council".
In 2017, I began with chairing the Education Drives Discovery PAC to successfully pass the UNM-LA Mil Levy. I would then try my hand again at the UNM-LA Advisory Board. Later that year, I joined many other community leaders to advocate for the Recreation Bond. Although unsuccessful, I continued to serve on the ESB. Through LEWF, I partnered with the Pajarito Environmental Sustainability Board to bring New Mexico's first Bear Festival to Los Alamos.
After the Recreation Bond, I decided to resign as Chairman of the Republican Party of Los Alamos due to health and complications with my job. As 2017 came to an end, and after a lot of thought and contemplation, I decided to leave the Republican Party and join the Democratic Party of Los Alamos. There were many reasons for my change, but concentrated around my views on the environment, use of science in decisions, education and good governance.
