Hi! I served 6 years in the Navy working in the intelligence community as a CTR from 2010-16. I did two deployments, one to Afghanistan and another to 5th Fleet aboard the USS Anchorage. After finishing my service I attended Mesa Community College in San Diego, where I was involved in student government and played volleyball. I transferred to UC Irvine after a year to play on the Men’s Volleyball team and majored in Social Ecology. I had a diverse experience where I worked for the campus Veterans Office, an Organizer for Student Government, Peer Mentor, Honors Student, and a board member for a Political Organization.

After graduation I took some time to decompress from my military service and my education. I am currently living in Mexico City where I am developing a sustainable and just restaurant, working on creating an intersectional environmental education portal, and a community composting program.
