I was born in Bakersfield, Ca where I worked with my dad building wrought iron fences, gates, and more. I went to an all-Spanish school when I was growing up and when I turned about 8 we had to move because our family was too big for the house we were in. This made things difficult as I had to go from an all-Spanish speaking school to an all English-speaking school in a matter for days. After moving, I picked up English quickly and finished the rest of my schooling until High School. I was given a great opportunity to attend one of the best private high schools in Bakersfield and I took it. I played basketball for the Garces Rams and did Cross Country.
After High School, I attended Bakersfield Community College to get my general education classes out of the way, as it made it less expensive moving forward. I was enrolled as a Mechanical Engineer student and was almost done with the first two years of college when financial difficulty hit, and I opted to go into the United States Navy. I went in as Machinist Mate Nuclear Operator were, I went to basic in Chicago, Illinois.
After graduating basic, I had to attend a 2-year school in order to learn everything there was about Nuclear Power and Operations. This took place in Charleston, SC, and Ballston Spa, NY. Once I finished my Naval Nuclear Power School, I was assigned to the USS Enterprise CVN 65 in Norfolk, VA. The deployment that I went on was the last deployment that the USS Enterprise would see in her long career.
After semi-decommissioning this historic Aircraft Carrier, I was then reassigned to the USS Theodore Roosevelt CVN-71 that was stationed in Norfolk but then was moved to Coronado, CA after our deployment. On the USS Theodore Roosevelt, I was able to obtain my Chief Machinery Supervisory that took care of a plant designated for the nuclear reactors on board. My main mission was to ensure that we had steam, water, and electricity via Nuclear Power onboard the USS Theodore Roosevelt CVN-71.
After six long years in the Service I decide to get out and try my hand in the civilian sector, that is when I got a job at Greenlee Communications and was the leading expert in Fiber Installation. I did this for about 2 years until another opportunity arose on the agricultural side that I found interesting. The agricultural side was completely different from the Telecom world and to my surprise, I did not enjoy it as much. Soon after I found out that Travis was looking for someone and soon after became a member of the Rally Rep Team. Now, I am still going to school to pursue my BAS in Cyber Security at Excelsior College in New York. I hope to finish by the summer of 2021.
