I have worked from encouraging organic farming to increase value of farm produce in Mexico, promoting alternative educational systems in urban communities, to heading an initiative of alternative medicine practices for which Mexico is so well known. My clients can feel free to invest in these alternative development projects as well, often as a way of giving back to the communities that they are profiting from.

My struggle

Mexico and its incredible potential is my biggest struggle and passion today. I see this country as the umbilical cord of the world, a symbol of paradox and tremendous beauty. Mexico is so incredibly biodiverse and rich in natural resources, history and culture and is moving towards its place as a global leader. The family values prevalent in Mexico and the ingenuity and entrepreneurial zest of its people are its greatest resources. This country embodies so much beauty and also many of the elements of suffering in our world today, a metaphor to the struggle to save ourselves and our beautiful world, a symbol that faith, hope and smart work overcome environmental destruction, spiritual apathy and moral degradation.


My skills for organizing and motivating others to help themselves has positioned me in senior levels in the Mexican government in particular. This is summed up in my involvement in projects focused on energy, sustainability and community economic development. I am blessed to be surrounded by talented and positive people that feel the contagion of my desire to help Mexico realize its potential. Every day, my team and I do our part to illuminate this special corner of the world, contributing to its course of ambition and self-realization satisfied that our daily work leaves this world and this country a better place. The results of our efforts will be the best judgement and reward over the next 30 years, thanks for staying tuned.



My Philosophy

“In service to others, I am laden with skills for organizing and motivating people to help themselves, achieving results and letting them go. This is summed up in my involvement in sustainable and community economic development projects, with a special focus on energy in Mexico. The resources created from the energy reform will revolutionize the country and empower its social programs over the next generation”.
