What I love most about my job at Teledyne?

The amazing projects we support and parts that we make.

What about your Hispanic heritage has influenced you the most?

Our heritage is important because it helps us understand and explain why we are the way we are. I was born in Albuquerque, NM, which got its name (in 1706) from the Duke of Albuquerque, then the viceroy of New Spain. Those Spaniards came to America to start a new life. They were hard working people with a dream. Because they took a huge risk to get here and integrate themselves with the native Americans, I was given an opportunity to live in an awesome country. Their struggles motivate me to be the best person I can be. I carry their values of hard work and dedication, and I apply it to my daily life. ​
