I started with CEA on January 13, 2020 as Advancement Parish Liaison. My responsibilities include visiting parishes throughout the state and educating the parishioners about CEA’s mission and how they can benefit from CEA and help provide a Catholic education to underserved children.

I have a very diverse background including fast food restaurant management, nonprofit community outreach, banking management, professional sports corporate sales, and television station management. I found in my later years that I was truly happiest when I was involved with my church and have since been very active in my parish at Saint John Vianney as a lector, fundraiser, youth sports coach and a stint as a substitute teacher. Truth be told, the best part is that I get to spend a lot of quality time with my granddaughter, who attends the school.

I grew up in Globe, Arizona. All of my family was fortunate enough to attend Catholic school in our primary years. My family ran a TV & appliance business there for many years. After graduating from high school, I moved to the valley. Eventually, I received my bachelor’s degree in business. I am a blessed grandfather (Tata), father, son, and brother.

My faith is the focal point of my life…period!!!
