I am a highly-qualified Criminal Investigator, experienced in several key areas that include: financial investigations, narcotics smuggling, human trafficking, bulk cash smuggling and commercial fraud. I have been a Special Agent with HSI McAllen for ten years. Prior to my service with HSI, I was a U.S. Border Patrol Agent in San Diego, California. I have spent my nearly 17 years of federal law enforcement experience on the Southwest Border of the United States. In addition, having been born and raised on the South Texas border, I have a deep understanding and appreciation for the culture and the dynamics that impact the rest of the country.

I am a native speaker of the Spanish language who possesses excellent communication skills. I have developed and maintained a long list of professional relationships with several domestic and foreign counterparts. I pride myself in being known as a fair and professional agent when dealing with unruly offenders and problem situations. I am highly effective at interviewing offenders and witnesses.

My ability to communicate effectively has benefited the communities we as an agency serve in South Texas. For almost ten years, I have routinely participated in community outreach events. I often speak to large groups of students about the dangers of drugs, the importance of making right choices in life and about the many intrinsic rewards that come with serving as an HSI Special Agent. In addition, I have made presentations to community leaders, alongside other federal agencies, about the HSI mission.
