Why I'm in Rotary:
I love to be part of Rotary because it's one of the best organizations in the world that supports all kinds of projects and focuses on helping people. One of my best Rotary moments is when I went to provide help directly to the people in different countries.
What people don’t know about me:
I love my Jag.
I always do what I love to do.

Strange but true:
I have run 26 marathons.

Passions, hobbies, interests:
Run, read, business, traveling
What I'm really good at:
Doing business.

One goal I’d like to accomplish:
Go into space.
Favorite place to vacation/visit:
Spain - Madrid
Mexico City

On my bucket list:
Write at least one book.
Most embarrassing moment:
During a Rotary meeting in Mexico I was translating a conversation from English to Spanish, and I just repeated the same thing in English.
