Program Manager, Thompson Gray
Business Process Lead, Health Affairs Functional Champion
I support the customer with the pre and post deployment activities for GFEBS implementation across the Defense Health Program. My primary area of responsibility is spending chain with a focus on the GFEBS/SPS interface.
I grew up in Puerto Rico and joined the Army right after high school. After a few years on active duty, tired of early formations, relocating, and the Army dictating the terms of my life, I transitioned to the Army Reserves in 2010 and “took charge” of my future. So to show me who was really “in-charge”, the Army decided to send me to Afghanistan in 2011J. After a short stint as a DoD civilian, I joined the Thompson Gray team in October 2017 and I have enjoyed every moment since.
My wife Alex is originally from Greece and she is also in the Army. We met in Kuwait in 2004 while deployed. I married her the next year and once more in 2006 for good measure. Together we have a beautiful 5 year old “Greekorican” girl who easily manipulates me.

2. If you could chat with anyone, dead or alive, who would it be and what would you talk about?
I would talk and have one more beer with my dad. I would thank him for his advice, encouragement and overall parenting. 14 year after his passing and I still strive to make him proud and live up to his expectations.
3. At which store would you like to max-out your credit card?
No más! I’ve done it in more than one occasion and it’s now time for me to grow up!
