In 1972, my mother left her farming village in México with six young children and one suitcase to go by bus to California. I was eight years old. This is the journey that changed my life, as portrayed in my poetry, writings, and artwork in “Art & Poetry - nested in these - Captured Moments," published 2021.
As an engineering graduate from Loyola Marymount University, my professional career began designing theme park attractions for Walt Disney Imagineering. After 10 years as an engineer, and after researching other fields in which to apply my experience, I discovered the field of Intellectual Property (IP). I hold a patent agent registration from the United States Patent and Trademark Office and a Juris Doctorate. I've worked in the IP field for 20 years.
My journey continues as I’ve discovered the joy of writing poetry, photography, and painting. Although, I embark in these gratifying art forms during my spare time, I take each moment to the fullest until a project is complete.
