MY STORY

I am proud to serve as an I Wear Turquoise Ambassador supporting the American Lung Association and its mission to overcome COVID-19 and ensure lung health for all. This is an important role that I take very seriously because everything we all do begins with breathe. As you may know, I am a father of two, soon to be three. I remember my children’s first breathe and can’t wait until my third comes in just a few days. I need not say that I will do anything necessary to ensure my children live in health and happiness. That includes supporting the American Lung mission.

This organization has a strong history overcoming tuberculosis and now it is taking on COVID-19 and other lung diseases for my family and yours. I recently lost my uncle to lung cancer. My family and I attended his memorial through Zoom. The thought of honoring a loved one through video platforms was unimaginable just a few months ago. This pandemic impacts the most personal of experiences and I am working to end it. I hope you will join me as a donor.

Every dollar raised through this campaign will go immediately and directly to research for cures of all lung diseases, in addition to advocacy and education. To learn more, please go to www.lung.org.

A little more about my professional side: I am the president and chief executive officer of Maestro Development, LLC, a Southern California development firm that specializes in construction management for the healthcare, education, public agency, and real estate industries. Since establishing Maestro Development, I have been depended on to oversee the business development, strategy, and day-to-day operations of the company, as well as provide project management for several cutting edge developments in Southern California.

With over 18 years of practical experience, I have worked with prominent clients such as Cedars Sinai, Cal Poly Pomona, University of Southern California, Apple, City of Anaheim, and Kaiser Permanente. My inspiration to enter real estate development, project management, and construction management is derived from my diverse background, which includes a role with The Walt Disney Company, where I served as a senior project manager.

I Wear Turquoise (IWT) is an American Lung Association LUNG FORCE campaign, engaging leaders throughout Southern California.

In American Lung Association’s pursuit to ensure lung health for all, its research funding is hard at work during this outbreak of coronavirus disease (COVID-19). A recent discovery is showing great promise for a potential vaccine. Our lung helpline and website continue to be trusted sources of information and support. Reliable resources, including guidance on how to protect yourself and your family from becoming infected, are available during this unprecedented health threat. It is important that this crucial work continue. We invite you to be a part of the solution and help prevent against future pandemics TODAY.

The American Lung Association's LUNG FORCE launched five years ago, uniting women and their loved ones to stand together and fight lung cancer. Today we invite everyone to join the commitment to lung health and for clean, healthy and livable communities for all. Leaders from throughout Southern California have joined us to become IWT Ambassadors to lead the charge toward a cleaner, healthier future.
