Happily married, 6 dogs, no kids.

I'm a passionate autodidact for all things music, sales/marketing and social entrepreneurship.

I've been working with Plantronics (the headset company) in Tijuana for a decade now, first for years in the Technical Assistance Center and now with the Business Development team as Inside Sales Account Manager for the Southeast region US (GA-NC-SC).

Outside of Plantronics: I'm the General Manager of HazTJ, which is the Tijuana metro of DoStuff (DoStuff is a network of local media properties run by local teams. 4 million people across 21 cities use our local daily emails, apps, websites & social handles to answer the question: “What am I going to do tonight?”). // I'm the Manager/Booker of SLARES (A live band that plays original house/disco/pop music). // I'm the Manager/Lead Guitarist in CICUTA (A Hardcore/Metal band formed in 2004). // I've been the Rhythm/Lead Guitarist for Ambiente since 2005 (A Post-Rock band, currently on hiatus). // I was the Lead Guitarist in GLASMUS (An Alternative Rock band, from 2011 to 2016). // I'm the PR Manager for Croquetón Tijuana (A bianual fundraising event founded in April 2013 that benefits rescued dogs and cats).

"No comas ansias"

I actually admire a lot someone from Tijuana, Ramón Amezcua aka "Bostich", an electronic musician. I took a brief couple of classes with him a couple of years ago when he set up a little school for electronic music. He's one of those people that from my perspective has achieve pretty much all of the good things you can aspire in life: A steady/loving relationship with your spouse, a fulfilled career around your true passion (music in his case) while at the same time be a total badass at your 'back up career' (dentistry), and always carry with you a great attitude towards life and the people around you. He just always looks and souds (when you talk to him) happy and positive.
