Bio 

My name is Raul. Since my young boy scout days I look for ways to help others, to improve the community, and bring value to coworkers, friends, family, and strangers. I am a member of Toastmasters, Project Management Institute Alaska, Buckner Masters Swim Team. I give back to the community as Assistant Cubmaster, a mentor for transitioning service members, and as a Leadership Anchorage alumni.
