Worked at several places until I started working at Bird Technologies Group in Solon. Been there for 26 years. My family and I consider Ohio our home, but Puerto Rico is always in our hearts.
One of the best experiences of my life was riding cross country from Seattle to Mount Rushmore, South Dakota in 2003 with Paul Martins dad, Pastor Jim Martin and Ray Martinez. 1800 miles in 21 days, logging 7 or 8 100 plus days during the 3 weeks. What a beautiful country we have.
