What I love most about my job at Teledyne?

Working with Firemen, Police and First Responders to provide them with the best thermal cameras for Search and Rescue. Knowing our tools are used almost daily to help save lives and keep the men and women who put themselves in harms way safe.

What about your Hispanic heritage has influenced you the most?

Growing up in a rural farming community and watching my parents work and struggle to give my 3 siblings and I, a better life. The opportunities that have allowed me to be successful early on in my military career and now in my professional career were possible because of the work ethic my parents instilled in me. I try to ensure that all their hard work and sacrifice was worth it, and that they are proud of what I have achieved and what is still to come. ‚Äč
