The People Running the Show
I’m one of the main editors for Global Reach which means I’m always looking for ways to make this blog a great resource for your business. When I’m not editing or posting blogs, I work as a member of the AESDirect Team in the AES Branch, I work hand-in-hand with our developers to enhance the AESDirect website and its applications so that it meets your needs.
I was raised in Puerto Rico, so my favorite season is inevitably summer. Hence, if asked today what I like to do in my spare time, I would say being outdoors! I enjoy cooking, working out, going to the pool/beach, and eating a good meal (preferably outdoors).
I joined the Global Reach team in 2011. Over the past six years, I have acquired experience collecting, analyzing and disseminating manufacturing and energy consumption data as well as import and export data related to the transportation industry. Currently, I work in the Regulations, Outreach, and Education Branch, where I assist in updating and maintaining the Foreign Trade Regulations.
Originally from Rochester, New York, I am a Buffalo Bills fan by default. I received a B.A. in Economics from Elon University in 2008 and a M.A. in Applied Economics from Johns Hopkins University in 2012. On my free time, I enjoy traveling, running marathons, yoga and learning Swedish.
I began my career with the US Census Bureau in the Manufacturing and Construction Division (MCD) as an intern in 2010. During my time in MCD, I was able to learn about respondent contact and surveying in multiple industries within the United States. Currently, I work in the Automated Export System Branch (AESB) in our Marketing and Client Services and chances are if you have called our call center, we have already met. As an analyst for AESB, I ensure that the Trade community receives timely responses to questions about AES and develop broadcast messages for changes, issues or updates to the AES.
I was raised just outside of Washington, DC. In 2010, I graduated from Salisbury University with a B.S. in Business Management. I enjoy being outside for any reason and particularly for playing sports. Being a Maryland boy, I also enjoy spending time on the water doing recreational crabbing and some water sports.
I’m a member of the Foreign Trade Regulations (FTR) Team, my team and I focus on educating the public on the FTR. Not only do I assist the trade community with questions or concerns they may have regarding the definitions or regulations on what is required to be reported in AES, but also serve as a liaison between the trade community and other Federal Government agencies. Any questions or concerns regarding FTR? My team or I will be able to assist you.
Cuban-American, raised in Boston, Massachusetts. I love traveling and going to the beach. I also enjoy researching different cultures and their influence on fashion and current trends.
