I was born and raised in Southern California, the fifth-born of a big, fat Mexican family I dearly love and who has been through a lot.
I’m a bookish guy. I geek-out on language learning, writing, guitar-playing, and fun.
I shy away from formality, fearfulness, or anything that smacks of a performance-orientation.
My StrengthsFinder Top 5 are Ideation, Input, Activator, Maximizer, and Positivity.
My mission in life is to inspire, create, & liberate.
I love humble, funky people. I empathize with outsiders, since I grew up feeling like one.
I support leaders of color, women in leadership, and creative entrepreneurs.
My wife, Bonnie, and I live in Denver, Colorado where we raised our three sons.
I love Lucy (our border collie) , Jeeping, bbq, teams from Los Angeles that win, and Jesus.
