I was born in Washington, D.C., but my parents are from El Salvador. I have lived in this area for most of my life. I attended Montgomery College and the University of Maryland. Even though I was a Psychology major, I went into Landscape construction and contracting. I was the Facilities Grounds Manager for Gallaudet University for over 12 years and worked at the Audubon as their property manager prior to joining DCI. I am married to a school teacher, and have two kids, and two dogs.
