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 am one of the Global Reach managers. Over the past 4 years, I have acquired experience in the Manufacturing and Construction Division surveying medical device and electronic manufacturers on output, collaborated with the Energy Information Administration to measure energy consumption in U.S. manufacturing and audited import statistics for the U.S. transportation industry in the Commodity Analysis Branch. Currently I am working as an analyst in the Regulations, Education and Outreach branch where I assist exporters with the interpretation of the Foreign Trade Regulations.
I was raised in Rochester, New York. In 2008, I graduated from Elon University where I received in B.A. in Economics. Recently I graduated from Johns Hopkins University where I received an M.A. in Applied Economics. I enjoy traveling, cooking, the outdoors 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.
