What is it that drives you in your position / why do you like doing what you do? MPA is a family to me.  Our management team is approachable, professional, and personable. I have always felt respected. MPA is invested in me. They have given me opportunities to increase my value, allow me to continue education, and promoted me on my merits. I start my day counting my blessing for my employment. I feel good coming to work every day. MPA provides a safe working environment.

MPA is respected in the construction industry, and our team possesses outstanding ethical work practices. I like the company gathering outside of work for events such as, barbeques and play activities, walks for charity events, and participating in networking events. All these activities strengthen us as a team and promotes comradery. This is good culture.

What do you like doing outside of work? I volunteer for the American Red Cross, my church, Feeding America, San Diego Blood Bank.  “At the end of the day it’s not about what you have or even what you’ve accomplished… it’s about who you’ve lifted up, who you’ve made better. It’s about what you’ve given back” –Denzel Washington.  That quote speaks volumes of how I want to live my life.  I love cycling.  I had participated in a half century cycle ride with our retired Principal, John McGee.  It was an amazing experience I will always cherish. In my spare time I like to cook, read, travel, gaming, watch a good romance/comedy movie, and attend sporting events.

What is your favorite food / drink / place to travel? Something else you’d rather talk about? By far Mexican food is my favorite, especially when I can enjoy a good chile relleno and a margarita!  A good glass of red wine is also something I enjoy when I am on a road trip and exploring new destinations
