I started my career in financial services 16 years ago. Well, actually it started about 28 years ago when I was running my father’s snow-cone business at the tender age of nine years old. My dad, a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ needed cheap labor for his side gig so he “hired” me, my brother and my cousin to make ice, syrup and work 16 hour days at festivals such as Lollapalooza. Read more>>

My love for photography began many years ago, while I shadowed my father, a professional photographer during the film era. Throughout my childhood and teenage years, that love grew.

My passion for orthodontics began as a child as both of my parents were dentists in Venezuela. I always loved smiles and science so orthodontics came very naturally to me.
