Francisco Parés is originally from San Diego, California but has lived across the border in Ensenada, Baja California most of his life. Although he has an academic background in civil engineering and a Masters in renewable energy, his passion for community development and sustainability led him to found a non-profit that seeks to promote a more sustainable and just economy in his hometown.

When he is not thinking about work, he is probably thinking about either the next cooking experiment he’d like to do, the next mountain he’s planning on climbing or figuring out where to go salsa dancing and who to go with.

His short term goal is getting an Australian shepherd puppy and naming it Don Porfirio.
