I was born in Peru. I moved to the United States to attend college at Brigham Young University. My last year of college I met my wife Lisa. After both of us graduated from college we moved to my wife's hometown "Hood River" (1993). We have 4 children and we all love our community. I enjoy the outdoors and doing all kinds of fun things with my family. You'll probably will see us at the river or the beach during the summer. I also like to play tennis with my kids and friends, watch the Grand Slams on TV and maybe some day go to see the US Open, Wimbledon or French Open. I love art, music, gardening, reading, skiing, math, science, etc.I obtained my Master's Degree in Education from Portland State University. I enjoy teaching at Parkdale, Kids are awesome!!!
