I am Guatemalan sailor, a hydraulic engineer, and a full-time university student.
I have always been very active, as a kid I played just about every sport I came across, but my real passion always lied in watersports. I learned how to waterski when I was four, how to wakeboard when I was five, and how to foil when I was seven. I decided I wanted to be a professional wakeboarder when I was ten and I worked towards that dream every day for the next six years.
I picked up kiteboarding as a hobby along the way when I was around 12. I was introduced to the local sailing community through it and started sailing when I was 15. I let go of my dream to become a professional wakeboarder when I was 16, after winning the Central American and Caribbean Games, to start sailing Nacra 17 and pursue my Olympic dream. I campaigned for the Tokyo Olympics when I was 17, and although we didn’t qualify, it was an experience that shaped me as a person and as an athlete. I enrolled at a liberal arts program when I was 18 with the purpose of widening my skills to become the best sailor I could, for I knew Olympic class sailing was only going to take me so far. I was 19 when I was selected to be the bowman for the Guatemalan SSL Team and when I started interning for SailGP.
I am currently still in college, preparing for the upcoming SSL Gold Cup and working part-time with SailGP as a hydraulic engineer.
