No matter what position I earn, I always strive to grow the business, improve bottom lines, and support financial sustainability.


"The most rewarding part of my work has been in the handoff and approval. There is no greater feeling than handing a customer a real, tangible product and relishing in the joy of a job well done."
"Pride is a metric. If you can feel pride in your teams work- without reservation- you're doing something right."
"My coin is kindness. I try to share as much as I can, as often as I can, and the cool thing is... the balance never runs out." Enrique Gomez, 2020
