Hola

This is me

By now you know my name and the many things I do. Somethings you do not know about me however are the following: I love to dance, I once walked into a mountain lion while hiking, I make some mean chilaquiles, I am highly competitive when it comes athletics, I spend my Sundays cleaning up the beach, if I had an intro song it would be In the Stone by Earth, Wind, and Fire, and the reason why I studied architecture was because as a kid I told myself I would design and build my parents a home as a way of showing my gratitude for all they have sacrificed and done for me and my sisters.

I am a gentle soul overflowing with optimism, creativity, and ambition. I am an upbeat and happy ambivert that loves people, but recharges alone. I am an environmentalist that is always looking for innovative ways to collaborate with others and help create generational sustainable futures. I strive to inspire, uplift, and empower everyone I cross paths with in life and value friendships to be worth much more than gold.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope to connect with you.
