I was born and raised in Reynosa, Mexico, and graduated as an Industrial Engineer in 2008. I worked the summers of 2005-2008 in an organization that facilitated mission trips in Mexico, which is how I met my wonderful wife, Hillary Klipp Lopez (kindergarten SI Teacher at Rose Park). We got married in 2009 and moved to Texas in 2010 where we had two amazing children, moved to New Hampshire in 2016 and ended up moving to Holland in 2017--what we consider (for now :) ) our home. Throughout these years we served in local churches as leaders in youth and small groups at home. I enjoy working outdoors, which I saw as an opportunity to be part of the Grounds Crew at HC. I find it satisfying to be serving the HC community in this area because I get to enjoy the results right in front of me, and I can enjoy God's creation.
