Born in Mexico City, Mexico
Live and work in Hartford, CT
I was raised in California for most of my childhood years, and relocated to Connecticut to pursue a better career opportunity. I am a true believer that "If you do what you love, you'll never work a day in your life!"
I have been blessed with two witty and awesome kids, which I spend most of my free time on my days off.
I am up for a creative challenge any day of the week!!
