Interests

I was born in Mexico City and then raised in Toronto, Canada. In 2010 I moved to the U.S. and married my wife Jaime. We lived in Las Vegas for four years then made our way to St. George in the summer of 2014. Jaime and I have 3 daughters: Kenzie, Kennedy, and Keonna.
Sports have always been a big part of my life. I played football, volleyball, basketball, and baseball up through high school and even married a basketball coach. I enjoy coaching baseball and when I can playing softball while most of my time revolves around my 3 little ones and my lovely wife.

Comments on DRA

I began working at DRA when I suddenly found myself out of work. DRA has given me the opportunity to grow not only professionally but on a personal level as well. During my time here, I have witnessed the changes our students make in their lives when they are willing to apply the tools they are given. It is a privilege to see the transformation of our students from when they first arrive on our campus to when they leave. It is inspiring to watch them grow and to know they have been given the tools that they need to be successful.
Athletics is a great outlet that we offer our students. Participating in athletics teaches hard work, sportsmanship, commitment, accountability, and life lessons that they will carry with them for the rest of their lives.
