Born and raised on the Southside of Milwaukee (in District 6), I attended Kagel Elementary and Lincoln Center of the Arts, graduated from Carmen High School of Science & Technology and went on to study at the University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee where I earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Urban Studies and Business Administration. I was part of Youth Empowered in the Struggle (YES) volunteered with the Southside Organizing Committee from 2011-2015 to organize college students and plan marches in an effort to support immigrant rights. I now work as the Community Outreach Manager at Layton Boulevard West Neighbors, where I collaborate with residents, youth, businesses and partners to attract investments into the local neighborhoods. My wife Rebecca Arcos and I are newlyweds, married on March 26, 2016. She has an MA in social work and runs La Luz del Mundo Family Services. My mother Maria Zuniga who raised me lives with my sisters, Sarai (age 13, Wedgewood student) and Ismerai (age 9, Alba student). We are faithful members of La Luz del Mundo Church.
