Why did you decide to live in Albuquerque?
I was employed by the Air Force and was stationed at Kirtland Air Force Base. After my commitment, I stayed in Albuquerque to continue my education at UNM. I then decided to stay for the more gentler climate compared to the Northeast where I am from. I very much like the activities that are available here, the artwork, museums and beautiful scenery. My youngest daughter is very happy here so I decided to stay.

I have 4 wonderful daughters and their names are Claire, Rebecca, Alexandra and Maria and they are the love of my life.

Reading, exercising, listening to music, spending time with family and friends
