I was born in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic and played for nationally ranked Flanagan High School in Pembroke Pines, Florida. I played collegiate ball at Northeastern Ohio, where I was an infielder. After getting my undergrad degree in Ohio,  I got in a car and drove to beautiful Marin. I have been here for about 3 years now, working in Corporate Social Responsibility Projects in the Caribbean, Experiential Marketing, and Lead Generation Marketing now. I have been coaching around Marin for the last 4 years, as an Infield Coach for the Varsity Baseball team at Archie Williams HS, and Marin Baseball, amongst other travel teams around the area.
