I am more focused on what I want now than I've ever been before in my life. Nothing and no one will stop me from achieving my dreams. I was born and raised in East Los Angeles. I grew up in a house full of uncles, aunts, and cousins. Wow, looking back I have so many great memories and memories that make me think "so thats why i'm like that". I was raised by my grandparents (long story) I thank my grandparents for instilling a family first attitude in me. I moved to Rosemead just before I started high school. Spent 4 years in Rosemead. After high school I moved to Covina. I was working at Smith's Supermarkets and that is where I met my wife. We got married two years later. We've been married for 19 years and we have 4 beautiful children. It's been a wild ride to say the least. I am looking forward to the next 50 years with her and my kids.
