I was born in Massachusetts to immigrants from Cabo Verde, a former Portuguese colony. After receiving my bachelor’s degree from MIT, I was commissioned in the Army and served for 27 years in Europe, Africa, Asia, and the US before retiring in 2015. My education and experience include a masters degree in international affairs, designing and teaching an undergraduate course at Georgetown University, running a large military staff, operational deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan, and serving as an Africa Foreign Area Officer. After the Army, I volunteered in Mountain Song classes, did part time work as a middle and high school substitute teacher, and served as an adjunct professor at Pikes Peak Community College where I taught American Government. I am currently employed at School District 49 as the Chief Operations Officer.
My wife and I have 3 great kids: one daughter in college and a son and daughter currently in Mountain Song Community School. I am thoroughly enjoying the opportunity to be more involved in my children’s education now that I have completed my Army career.
I enjoy spending time with my family, riding my Thunderbird motorcycle, exercise, reading, Colorado hikes, and catching up with friends and extended family throughout the USA.
