Working for Colorado Rapids has been a great experience and I enjoy working with one of the best staff in the state. We have quality people at all levels working and leading our club, but one of the most important things I enjoy is that Rapids Youth is very passionate about developing kids as players and focusing on developing good people for life.
I am from Lima, Peru and have lived in the US since December 2013. The last six years I have spend in Colorado and the previous seven in California.
I grew up playing soccer on the streets in my neighborhood in Lima and at the age of 12, I started playing for one of the most popular clubs in Peru (Universitario de Deportes). Because of soccer I had the chance to travel to places that I never imagined I would be able to and at the age of 16, 20, and 23, I was able to represent my country on the national stage and played at the professional level for almost 14 years.
At the age of 29, I came to the US looking for different opportunities and landed a position with Colorado Rush, where I worked from 2010 to 2016.
When not involved with soccer, I enjoy time at the beach, and love ceviche and lomo saltado.
