Get to know me

As a First Citizens Commercial Banker, it’s important to invest in understanding your business, strategies and key objectives. An established process and skilled team of specialists help me tailor solutions to fit you and your organization. Clients appreciate our trusted partnership in planning for long-term success.

I earned my Bachelors degree from CETYS University in Mexico with a concentration in Finance and Accounting. I received my CPA designation in 1992 and Master's degree in Corporate Finance in 1994. My career includes over 25 years in banking with the majority of that time spent in the Commercial Banking space. My specific focus has been working with clients in the Commercial and Industrial space that are in the growth phase of the business cycle seeking funding for real estate acquisitions, equipment financing and business lines of credit.

My spouse, Nieves, and I have been married for 30 years. We are the proud parents of two children, one is a Fashion Designer, who graduated from FIDM in Los Angeles, CA and one is attending San Diego City College for his Business Management degree.

I am passionate about spending my spare time with my family and also playing golf, mountain and road biking, running and traveling.

I invite you to connect with me on LinkedIn.
