Favorite Quote: "If you don’t fail, you’re not even trying. To get something you never had, you have to do something you never did.” – Denzel Washington

Why did you choose AACSA? (A few sentences): As I moved out to San Jose, I wanted to find an organization where I use what I’ve learned over the years to make a difference in the community. To me, this feels like a perfect fit. I am at my dream job because I know I will be put in position to help people.
