Luis grew up in Phoenix, Arizona and discovered his passion for education through the sacrifices made by his blue collar parents who never had the opportunity to attain a higher education. After becoming the first person in his family to complete a B.A. in both English Literature and International Studies, Luis returned to Arizona where he managed the full campaigns of two Democratic State Senate and one Democratic House of Representatives candidates. He also worked as the Voter Outreach Director for newly-elected Secretary of State Michele Reagan and provided Minority Outreach support for newly-elected Governor Ducey.
As the Phoenix Director, Luis is charged with ensuring that the grassroots sector remains effective, that any policy initiatives Stand invests in are implemented at the district level, and providing support at the state level with regards to policy.
Any given weekend, Luis is getting lost on various trails around Arizona.
