Why MPI? What does your membership mean to you?
I have found MPI to be a great way to network with my colleagues. It has also laid a comfortable platform for supplier/planner discussions.

Tell us about your passions; in and out of the office.
I was fortunate to have been raised by parents who’s passion is travel ‐ it has been a part of my life from when I can remember. Engaging with communities both domestic and international has become my driving passion both personally and professionally.

I love seeking and developing ways to engage youth with outdoor through education and doing what I can to assist in awareness of sustainably responsible lifestyles.

I am an engineer by trade and have partaken in a number of ventures aimed to disrupt various industries’ “standards”.

People and movements that challenge the status quo.

I think others should join MPI New Mexico because it is an opportunity to develop professional and personal relationships. The educational seminars provided by MPI New Mexico are extremely beneficial for both suppliers and planners.
