Greetings everyone, I'd like to take this opportunity to share my biography with you. I was born in Bronx, New York on May 11, 1983. I moved to Massachusetts when I was five years old. I am a single father and a Marine combat veteran. I've been a life resident of Fall River since 1996 and grew up here in Heritage Heights. My family is originally from Gurabo, Puerto Rico. I am a proud alumni of B.M.C Durfee High School where I was a standout quarterback and leader of our local high school football team. I am also a proud alumni of the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth where I earned my undergraduate bachelor's degree in Crime and Justice Studies. My professional career consists of dedicated service to our great country's military and United States Marine Corps. My military service consists of two combat tours (Operation Iraqi Freedom; Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan). I've also dedicated civilian service within our Commonwealth and federal government as a Veteran's Representative and Employment Specialist.
