Fellow Bio:

He holds a B.Sc. degree in Civil Engineering, a LEED GA credential and studied M.Sc. degree in Renewable Energy from UAG in Guadalajara, México. He has worked as an engineer and a research assistant. However, his passion for community development and sustainability led him to the creation of a non-profit that seeks to promote sustainable projects and practices. He is looking forward to working alongside the Civic Spark team in advancing California towards more sustainable communities.
