Francisco was born and raised in California's Central San Joaquin Valley. Growing up with the immigrant farm-worker experiences of his parents and older siblings made Francisco a strong believer and advocate for social equality and eventually led him to Youth MOVE Oregon.  His lived experiences with substance abuse and poverty have helped Francisco realize that empathy and unconditional support from others will always be inroads for tackling personal adversity.  Equally important for Francisco, is the belief that humor can crumble walls and mountains.  Thus, he can always be counted on for a good laugh.       

Francisco holds a BA in Political Science from San Francisco State University and a Master's Degree in Public Administration from the University of San Francisco. In his free time, Francisco enjoys riding motorcycles, playing guitar, listening to The Eagles, reading music autobiographies, and exercising.
