I was born in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic on 1/24/75 in a Christian family and my education was in Catholic schools. I was in a vocational technical school and I became an expert in industrial mechanics. In my childhood and adolescence, I was a Boy Scout which helped me build character and connect with the purpose of my life, to be useful to others through service and genuine heart. I’ve worked as an assistant in a machine shop, a Polster with Gallup, a bagger in a toy store, an assistant in a carpentry workshop, a messenger among other tasks.
I was trained and specialized in the area of welding and cutting steel which would serve me to start a business with my father in 1991 representing firms who specialized in the world of welding and cutting steel. Our company started by my parents and I, in June celebrates 26 years of operation and today we are the leader in our industry with operations across the island and another sister company in the United States selling products and services to Panama , Puerto Rico , Cuba, Trinidad and Tobago. I became a diabetic type 1 at age 20 which made me acquire a unique awareness of this condition, I have used this knowledge to serve other diabetics with encouragement and guidance for treatment. I was a volunteer counselor and trainer at the Institute of Diabetes for three years, 2004, 2005 and 2006. I am part of an initiative with a friend as founders of a Foundation called Learning to Live , I also served as a volunteer in 2007,2008 aimed at children and their parents relative this condition.
I also served as a volunteer in a foundation called friends against cancer at Robert Read Cabra Hospital. In 2013 I joined a nonpartisan political activity group concerned about the political and social situation of our country and 3 years later we became IDOL, before we were focused on the problem today we are focusing on the solution.
