I was born and raised in Bogota, Colombia. I moved to the United States in 2005. In South America, soccer is a very important part of our culture and our daily basis, so I have been playing soccer since I have my first childhood memories.


I studied Sociology in Colombia, and focused all my research and work on Sports Sociology. When I moved to Santa Barbara in 2007, I started taking classes to get my first coaching licenses.

Playing Experience:

During my youth years in Colombia, I played for different youth clubs, including the youth academy of one of the professional teams in my hometown. I played in High School, and when I started College, I also played in different amateur leagues.
